On 14th July, two CAT C32 Acert engines were hoisted and skilfully placed into the engine room of the latest Martinique, and soon after the steel hull and aluminium superstructure were joined on 19th July.
The images released show the profile of the yacht for the first time now that it has taken shape. YN201 will return to the shed where she will be welded, while work will also continue in her engine room. The next step will then be the outfitting of her interior installation, starting with the lower deck, before reaching her final milestone, the launch.
“Every time it’s amazing to see the yacht in its full glory for the first time,” says Ian Vermoen, Moonen Yachts Project Manager. “This point also marks the start of our intense outfitting period where all systems will be installed, the luxurious interior will be built-in, and she will be painted in her final colours.
“The next time she will be outside, she will be fully ready to be launched.”
YN201, which is available for sale, will incorporate the best features of her predecessors, Brigadoon, Kokoro and the in-build YN200. She is also at the stage where her future owner can still select and customise her interior to suit their wishes, presenting a marvellous opportunity to sign on a world-class new-build superyacht with a significantly reduced lead time.
