Feadship Moon Sand Yacht Interior
Moon Sand was designed by De Voogt Naval Architects and delivered in 2015 by Dutch yard Feadship in steel and aluminum to Lloyd’s class.
The interior design by Bannenberg & Rowell makes extensive use of Zebrano and Mahogany woods, housing eight people in four cottages.
Its bridge-deck saloon is intended for pleasant lounging and the owner’s work, complete with a gaming table, a bar, and a television area.
A full-beam master bedroom sits on the main deck, with a VIP suite and two double cabins below it.
All guest staterooms include entertainment centers, LED television screens, and en suite bathrooms, while the crew quarters can sleep up to nine people.
The Moon Sand yacht has a length of 44.2 meters (262.5 ft), a beam of 9.10 meters (29.85 ft), and a draught of 2.75 meters (9 ft).
This yacht has a range of 3,600 nautical miles at 10 knots and a cruising speed of 12 from twin 1,200hp Caterpillar diesel engines.
Quantum zero-speed stabilizers have been installed for added safety and comfort. She carries 13,710 liters of water and 44,062 liters of diesel fuel onboard.
Feadship Moon Sand Yacht Exterior
Studio De Voogt closely designed every aspect of a modern exterior profile with classic touches.
The Moon Sand Yacht has an aluminum hull superstructure, teak decks, and a semi-displacement hull, which provides great seakeeping and remarkable speeds.
A partially covered sun terrace above provides adequate room for socializing and dining and a bar and BBQ for entertaining guests.
The aft section is open to the elements and is ideal for morning yoga or afternoons spent on the sun loungers.
One of the essential modifications made during the design process was the contraflow swimming pool. The pool has a holding tank beneath it and can contain up to 9,000 liters of water.
From the bridge deck wing stations to the main deck lifting pool, all the main elements synthesize the owner’s desires, marrying them into the design.
Ocean Independence bought Feadship Moon Sand for $ 28,580,502 million in 2015. Depending on use, she generates annual running costs of $5 – 7 million.
