L © REPRINTED FROM HSB INTERNATIONAL FLAMINGO DAZE HAKVOORT SHIPYARD COMPLETES TWIN-SCREW OCEAN GOING MOTOR YACHT Builders : Hakvoort Shipyard, Monnickendam, The Netherlands Naval Architects : Vripack Yachting International, Sneek, The Netherlands Interior Designers : Glade Johnson Design, Washington, USA At Moran Yacht and Ship in Fort Lauderdale, Rob Moran and his four associates racked up a combined total of 60-some transatlantic crossings as professional captains and engineers in their former careers and have supervised new builds, refits, sales, purchases and charter bookings of yachts of all types and sizes, power and sail. The company now has a half dozen mega yachts under construction in Europe and several more in various stages of development. In 2003 Moran made 19 European trips on HSB INTERNATIONAL MAY 2004 behalf of his clients. In the 14 years since he opened Moran Yacht and Ship the company has handled transactions for ”a huge fleet of quality brokerage yachts” and looks forward to many more. Robert Moran’s commentary on the building project of the ’Flamingo Daze’: ”This project began when the client called our office about a 90’ yacht he’d seen advertised. That deal didn’t work out. We had many conversations and meetings and the client came to the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, but didn’t see anything he wanted. That’s when I suggested he should think about building a new boat, so we went to Europe and toured all the major yards. He liked Hakvoort and that’s where he placed the order. Originally the boat was to be around 120’ but this was extended when the owner enlarged the scope of his cruising plans. The result was ’Flamingo Daze’, which has been built to full Lloyd’s 100A1 and full MCA compliance. She has a gorgeous interior designed by Glade Johnson and Caterpillar 3508 engines with 3306 170 kW Cat generators.” Hakvoort Shipyard Monnickendam, the home of Hakvoort Shipyard, owes its name to the monks who built a dam there back in the 12th century.

Albert then went on to lay down the firm foundations of a thriving business that would eventually put the name of Monnickendam back on the world maritime map.
