Moonen Yacht BELUGA For Sale

The brief for BELUGA (ex My Issue) was a great challenge to Van der Velden Design and Stolk Marimecs, as it was a remarkable divergence from all previous Moonen projects designed by the same team.

For one thing, BELUGA (ex My Issue) is the highest-displacement Moonen yacht thus far built; for another she is the shipyard’s first Research-type, or “Explorer” yacht, a technologically sophisticated vessel with modern comforts (including zero-speed stabilisers and a hot tub), capable of cruising independently to the most remote places, particularly the extreme high-latitude Arctic and Antarctic regions. The brief therefore inspired a round-bilge displacement hull, ideal for fuel economy and superb sea keeping in the heavy weather BELUGA (ex My Issue) will likely encounter. Further, BELUGA (ex My Issue) was designed to comply with Lloyd's Register Ice-Class and MCA Cayman Islands Registry, to ensure structural integrity and the well-being of guests and crew at sea.
