Delivered to her new owners earlier this year, the Moonen 97 motor yacht Alaska has been selected as one of the finalists for the ISS power 24-40m award. Built by the respected Dutch shipyard Moonen, Alaska superyacht is the fourth vessel in an amazing range of steel-hulled displacement cruisers, and her sister ship, luxury yacht Livia has also been nominated for various awards. The second in the semi-custom series, superyacht Sofia II, will be showcased at the upcoming Fort Lauderdale boat show.
The International Superyacht Society’s Design Awards are based entirely on peer review and are an annual recognition of the finest naval architecture, design, interiors, engineering and builds. In her category luxury yacht Alaska faces stiff competition from yards in Greece, Italy, the United States and the Netherlands.
“We are delighted that one of our yachts has again become a finalist for these prestigious awards,” comments Dorien Bilterijst, head of marketing at Moonen Shipyards. “Alaska showcases our ability to create irreplaceable superyachts of the highest standard for a remarkably competitive price. Her phenomenal interior from Art-Line also testifies to our ability to work with leading co-makers.
“This is a busy time for Moonen Shipyards, which in recent months has completed the Moonen 82 fast displacement motor yacht My Way and the 42-metre custom superyacht Sofia. With an explorer vessel currently under construction at the yard along with several refits, the exceptional diversity offered by Moonen is clear for all to see. And with ambitious plans on the table to extend its facilities to allow superyachts of up to 60 metres to be constructed, Moonen is looking forward to an award-winning future.”
