New Model: Moonen 82 Alu

New Moonen 82 Alu handed over to delighted owners, Russian clients who have been very involved in the entire building process. Delivered exactly as planned, the yacht easily surpassed her specified speed of 25 knots in sea trials.  The owner of the new Moonen 82 Alu had previously owned a fiberglass motor yacht. He approached Moonen to commission a fast displacement yacht at the same time as the yard was developing a new range of aluminium vessels called the Alu-series, the first of which was a 94 model. The new Moonen 82 Alu sleeps six in three guest cabins, of which the owners room is a full beam suite.  Crew quarters are located aft featuring two cabins and a direct engine room access.  Power is twin MAN 1360hp which give a 25 knots max speed.
