Dutch builder Moonen Yachts has started the construction of its latest project, the 36.3m YN199, which will be the second yacht to be built on the 36m Martinique platform after the first hull was delivered in summer 2018. The project is available for sale and scheduled for delivery early spring 2020.

The yacht will feature exterior design by Dutch designer René van der Velden, with naval architecture in cooperation between René van der Velden and Diana Yacht Design, and London-based Studio Indigo responsible for interior design. The interior concept remains flexible to allow prospective owners to customise the interior design to personal style and taste.

YN199 will be able to accommodate 12 guests and seven crew. Regarding her performance, she will be powered by twin CAT C32 engines which provide her with a top speed of 16.5 knots and a cruising speed of 14.5 knots, as well as having a range of 4000nm at 10 knots.

The 30-40m new build sector has historically been an interesting sector for the superyacht industry to keep track of. That is with the assumption that, as the cheapest products with the shortest build time, this segment would be the first to show signs of an uptick in the market. However, the latest data from The Superyacht Intelligence Agency shows that the average annual growth rate for this sector since the end of 2006 is 4.9 per cent, a figure that is slightly disparate from the market as a whole over the same period, which stands at 5.2 per cent.
