Moonen Shipyards Complete 82 Alu Superyacht for Russian Clients

Moonen Shipyards in the Netherlands has completed the Moonen 82 Alu fast displacement superyacht My Way for Russian clients who have been very involved in the entire process. Delivered exactly as planned, the yacht easily surpassed her specified speed of 25 knots in sea trials. “My Way also performed superbly in terms of stability and her low noise levels,” reports the owner, who traveled over from Russia especially for the trials. “There was a remarkable feeling of safety at all speeds and in all conditions.” 

The owner of the new Moonen 82 Alu had previously owned a GRP motoryacht and his experiences had convinced him that speed was nothing without comfort. 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  the Moonen 94 Alu Nilo.

“We were greatly impressed with the flexibility of the yard and its designers,” remembers the owner. “My Way is a fine classic example of customization. The original platform for the Moonen 82 Alu specified a top speed of 21 knots but I requested 25 knots and the design was altered accordingly. At the same time she has all the comfort of a displacement yacht – going fast is no fun if it is uncomfortable – and an incredible range of 2000 miles on fuel tanks of in total 10,000 litres. This is quite exceptional for a boat of this volume.”
