Great looking Bill Dixon design with carbon spar and great deck house. Fully refitted 2010 and with a fab light wood interior.
LA LUNA is an outstanding custom cruising yacht from the board of Bill Dixon. She was built for powerful, fast cruising worldwide and has superb accommodation together with a great deck saloon and wide clear decks. She is easily handled by a small crew and she has been meticulously skipper maintained from Day One and she gleams.
Superbly finished and detailed, from her uncluttered decks (teak over e-glass), her latest technology, Hall carbon rig with in-boom furling and carbon standing rigging, her set of Doyle high tech sails and her vast carefully designed cockpit with large central dining table with a fridge which is perfect either at sea or for entertaining or both.
Her navigation systems are up to date with B&G H3000 Series with Furuno radar/GPs/chart plotter. Inside her beautifully appointed interior is finished in Haya Beech over stainless kickplates. Fully air conditioned – Cruisair 72,000 BTU.
The well-equipped galley has separate stainless fridges and freezers as well as a Miele electric oven, gas hob, dishwasher and microwave along with ample storage.
The cabins are all light, airy and voluminous, giving the impression of a much larger yacht. The fore-cabin is equipped with a large double berth and single berth, which allows luxurious accommodation as a crew cabin or as a fourth cabin on a privately run yacht.
LA LUNA has been recommissioned and fully serviced for the 2016 Caribbean season and is in fully sailing trim. Work carried out includes a 5 year rig check by Hall Spars, there is a report available, a refresh of the teak deck and full overhaul and deep service of the main systems. The interior décor has also been refreshed with new artwork and blinds.
Fully painted with Awl Grip in autumn 2010, entire lower saloon, galley and crew head also repainted/re-lacquered 2013. Re-modeled cockpit table and new halyards, sheets etc. with new fibre furling staysail system also in autumn 2010. Fleet 150 broadband also installed.
LA LUNA has sailed from Buenos Aires to Palma via Rio, through the Caribbean, through both the Western and Eastern Mediterranean and then in 2010/2011, to the Caribbean and back. In her latest Trans-Atlantic voyage, she made the passage from Antigua to Palma in only 19 days, including several days where she had no wind.
Great efforts have been made to soundproof the interior accommodation and engine room, allowing for maximum comfort for long passages and blue-ocean cruising.
There is no comparison to LA LUNA on the market and her interior volume and numerous qualities have to be experienced first-hand to truly be appreciated. High build quality, proven track record and simplicity of systems make her a rare and unique offering.
LA LUNA is built to RINA and MCA; not currently certified as such. Owner has paperwork to prove build standard and no major changes have been made in the last few years.
