About Moonen YN199
Launch name Martinique, Moonen YN199 is the second yacht to be built on the 36-metre Martinique platform. She features exterior design by renowned Dutch designer René van der Velden, with naval architecture by Diana Yacht Design in collaboration with René van der Velden. Available for sale and scheduled for delivery early spring 2020, interior styling and decoration will be a close collaboration between YN199’s future owners and London-based interior designers, Studio Indigo.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
A sister ship to 2019 World Superyacht Awards winner M/Y Brigadoon, YN199 is built on Moonen’s proven 36-metre Martinique platform. Feedback from Brigadoon’s owners feeds into the second model in this series, and YN199 takes the Martinique platform to new heights.
Featuring a newly-designed bimini on the sun deck, better-placed wing stations and a new foredeck seating arrangement, the Martinique model has been tweaked to provide owners with more functionality, better views and increased storage. Improvements continue inside, with redesigned cabins for guests and owner, a direct route between the captain’s cabin and the wheelhouse, and an extra day head on the bridge deck.
YN199 boasts a timeless design combined with a Fast Displacement Hull Form. Her striking profile sees an innovative use of glass. An almost continuous band of large windows on the main and bridge decks offer up spectacular vistas and plenty of natural light on board.
Her exterior design pays special attention to the perfect indoor-outdoor connection, with plenty of comfortable seating and sophisticated dining areas spread over three decks. With large sliding doors, the sky lounge seamlessly connects with the bridge deck aft to create one large space with the best of both worlds.
Technical operations and handling have a minimum impact on life onboard. The 5.7-metre tender is stored below the main deck and launched through the ship’s side, while, two wave runners can be stored on the foredeck or aft bridge deck, leaving decks uncluttered and maximising usable living space. With a range of 4,000 nm at 10 knots, YN199 more than lives up to Moonen’s heritage of building quality, oceangoing yachts.
YN199’s interior design is from the drawing boards of London-based studio, Studio Indigo. A timeless yet modern design combined with a smart layout provides spacious, light and luxurious interior living. Internal areas are maximised on board, with ease of movement and vast living spaces leaving YN199 feeling significantly larger than her length suggests.
Smart panelling enables interchangeable fabrics and wallpaper, while pale, wire-brushed veneers are blended with accent materials to add colour and texture. This interior concept remains flexible to allow prospective owners to customise the interior design to personal taste.
COMFORT, SAFETY & STYLE
Fantastic performance, perfect stability and exceedingly low noise and vibration levels characterise YN199. She measures 36.3 metres (119ft), with a beam of 8 metres, a draught of 2.1 metres and a volume of 337 GT. On board, she accommodates up to 12 guests and seven crew.
Powered by twin CAT C32 engines, she has a top speed of 17 knots and a comfortable cruising speed of 14 knots. A transatlantic range of 4000 nm at a cruising speed of 10 knots allows her owner to explore the world in comfort, safety and style.
