In the mid-1990s the owner chartered a Feadship yacht called MI GAEA which he bought soon after and renamed BLUE MOON – he then commissioned the second Blue Moon – launched in 2000 which was the largest aluminium Feadship ever built at the time. The third Blue Moon was commissioned in 2002 with a brief for a sleeker yacht with more accommodation.

BLUE MOONS profile has a flared bow combined with contemporary touches such as the semi-circular extensions with glass bulwarks on the sun and bridge deck aft.

“The way we design, is we design fully custom, fully unique yachts, we start with a blank piece of paper and we start asking the client how they use the boat, what they want to do on board, what kind of experience they have but we also want input on what kind of styling they like... It’s about getting to learn about the owner and how they want to use the boat.” - Ronno Schouten, Design Manager of De Voogt Naval Architects
