Martinique design

The award-winning Martinique design by Dutch designer René van der Velden allows natural light in, offers spectacular views out, and creates seamless indoor-outdoor connections. An almost continuous band of panoramic windows wraps around both the main and bridge decks.

The steel and aluminium Martinique has a maximum speed of 17 knots thanks to its fast displacement naval architecture, plus long-range transatlantic capability. The Martinique is comfortable, spacious, quiet and stable with a surprising interior volume at 345 gross tonnage.

Moonen will complete final outfitting and commissioning of Lumière with its crew during the coming months. Lumière is the fifth yacht from Moonen’s premium semi-custom Martinique design.
