The first hull of the Moonen 110 Mustique yacht series is ready for buyers to enjoy the remainder of the summer season. The Mustique is the latest semi-custom steel-hulled series from the Dutch shipyard. What’s sure to attract owners is the sense of spaciousness for her LOA, along with oceangoing mettle.
Joining the Martinique series, which counts the recent delivery Cocoon among the handful of hulls completed so far, the Mustique series measures 111 feet (34 meters). With a volume of 279 gross tons and a beam of nearly 25 feet (7.5 meters), she has ample-feeling accommodations for big families and groups of friends. Interestingly, despite having the same design teams as a few of the Martinique models, the Moonen 110 Mustique yacht series further draws inspiration from two smaller series from the past. Specifically, they’re the Moonen 84 and Moonen 97. Despite those series no longer being in production, the existing deliveries command strong interest on the brokerage market. They have classic, timeless lines, for example. Additionally, their owners crisscross major bodies of water year after year. Some, in fact, do this well more than a decade after delivery.
All of these ideas were in mind for the past two years while the shipyard fine-tuned and built the first Mustique. Of course, modern amenities were important, too. Therefore, the master suite is forward on the main deck, as a private retreat. Wrap-around windows afford 180-degree views, too, ideal for waking up in new anchorages every morning. The typical combination of twins and doubles for friends and family, meanwhile, await below decks. For further comfort, Moonen made the ceilings about seven feet high (2.15 meters).
Also for comfort, Sound and vibration control was of major importance. According to Moonen, the sound levels in the master stateroom are just 43 decibels at anchor when one genset is operating. That’s along the lines of a library, or even a suburban neighborhood during the night.
Since the Moonen Mustique 110 yacht is a modest size, a relatively small crew can handle operations as well. A captain and four crewmembers get accommodations forward of the guest area below decks. They have their own stairway directly to the galley on the main deck and wheelhouse above that.
Wherever you ask the captain and crew to point the bow, the megayacht should make the most of the voyage. Transatlantic range and low fuel consumption—reportedly 16 gph (60 lph) at 9 knots—are notable factors in this, for instance. Also notable, you can still enjoy Bahamian or other skinny-water cruising despite the Mustique having a steel hull.
All that’s left to do is to choose your favorite watertoys. The Moonen Mustique 110 yacht series accommodates a tender to about 24 feet (7.5 meters).
The project is available for immediate delivery at €17 million (about $18.65 million at press time).
