Projects: Moonen 24 metres Nick Mezas Design, Moonen 100 RPH

Moonen has released details of two new designs created for owners looking for a contemporary approach within the template of this Dutch builder. Rene van der Velden has drawn the modern lines of the 100 RPH, while Nick Mezas is responsible for a new fast displacement concept that is being offered in three lengths between 18 and 24 metres, so far shown in only in the larger size version. The 24 metres Nick Mezas Design above sees Moonen looking at smaller dimensions, and also sporting a more modern new generation trendy look outside.  The boats will also feature important differences even in the larger 24 metres model of this line of having only one anchor, to be built to CE regulation instead of class rules, and for being propelled with IPS pod drives.  Moonen does not give much details on this very interesting 24 meters Nick Mezas, but other important news are a round bilged hulls and 22 knots max which marks them in the fast displacement line from this builder.
The Moonen 100 RPH is designed by Rene van der Velden who presented modern lines with an owners stateroom on the main deck which features extra space in the beam thanks to the narrow walkways forward. These walkaways are intended for use by crew members only. Elsewhere the yacht has the most economic layout possible for a boat of the size. Moonen and architect der Velden have placed great emphasis in giving max space to the flybridge and to do this they have allowed for tenders placed in a garage located to aft.
