Review: Moonen 100' Explorer Yacht​

During the week of Thankgiving 2014, YachtForums' editor Judy Waldman flew to San Remo, Italy to cover a very special build, the new Moonen 100' Explorer built for Salim Erdem; aka YF member "Nilo".

A highly experienced yachtsman, Salim has been an active member of YachtForums for nearly a decade. In 2007, Moonen launched his first 94' fast-yacht, Nilo. Then in 2009, Salim became a majority shareholder in Moonen Shipyards, overseeing the design and construction of his new Moonen 100' Explorer, the subject of this special YF feature. Join Judy for an in-depth look at yacht built for a gentleman who makes YF a better world.
