The History of Moonen and Yachting

Although built under the name De Ruiter, the brand that would become Moonen launched its first yacht in 1963, putting into place the building blocks for what today is a fleet of semi-custom and custom yachts well regarded around the world. In 1981, the yard was renamed Moonen Shipyard. At this time, it also was under new ownership. The builder began to increase the size of its yachts a well as the size of the yard where they are built in the early 80s.

By 1985, Moonen had launched its first “big boat.” The 85-foot 26m CASSIOPEIA was the brand’s first pocket superyacht and it set the tone for the builder’s next chapter. Moonen continued to evolve into the 1990s when it’s 80-foot design WHITE HEAVEN hit the water and became the brand’s benchmark. Only six years later in 1998 Moonen underwent a rebranding process that overhauled the company’s vision. This was solidified by the launch of the 121-foot (37m) WHITE HEAVEN III, Moonen’s largest build to that date.

In 2006, Moonen celebrated its 25th anniversary as “Moonen.” By the 2000s, the brand was internationally recognized as a leader in the “pocket superyacht” genre of the industry. The shipyard continued to expand to meet the demands of clients from around the globe. By 2009, Moonen had outgrown its Den Bosch yard and opened a second in Groot-Ammers. This yard also opened the possibility for Moonen to build and refit yachts up to 165 feet. The global recession of the 2010s allowed Moonen the opportunity to refocus once again and by 2017 the brand reemerged as Moonen Yachts. Backed by a team of innovative designers, a robust vision for the future and state-of-the-art technology, the brand had solidified its place among market leaders building yachts in the 30-to-50-meter range.

In 2019 Moonen Yacht was purchased by Matthew and Louise Baxter. The new owners were dedicated to continuing Moonen’s evolution and begin collaborations with world-leading yacht designers. The brand is dedicated to offering shorter delivery times with increased customization options to ensure clients enjoy the perfect yacht experience.
