Moonen to build superyacht Matica – second in Caribbean series

Moonen to build superyacht Matica – second in Caribbean series

Superyacht builder Moonen Yachts, based in The Netherlands, has signed a new order for a 32-metre Matica design yacht with Simon Goldsworthy at Camper & Nicholsons representing the buyer.

This is the second project to be commissioned in Moonen’s new Caribbean superyacht range, which was revealed earlier this year. It was signed only two months after the order to build the 36.58 metre Martinique superyacht, the first in the Caribbean series. The first Moonen Matica yacht is expected to launch in 2016.

The motor yacht will feature design by the Caribbean series designer Rene van der Velden and will have a displacement of under 200 gross tons. The new Moonen yacht will boast a raised pilothouse house design and an on-deck owner’s suite.

The interiors will be designed by the UK-based design studio Adam Lay Studio, the World Superyacht Award-winning designer of the Baltic 33 metre carbon sailing superyacht Inukshuk.

'Their desire to explore the Caribbean and other parts of the world led the clients to seek a seaworthy, semi-custom yacht that could be customised to their specific demands. This includes the boat being just below 200 gross tons with the max volume possible, which will offer a range of benefits from an operational perspective,' says Emile Bilterijst, managing director of Moonen Shipyards.
