8 Great Reasons to Buy Sailing Yacht MOONBIRD

S/Y MOONBIRD is an award-winning racing superyacht built in New Zealand by shipyard Fitzroy Yachts. This luxury 37m sailing yacht was built in 2003 and has won pretty much every superyacht cups, and regatta she has ever entered. A refit 2 years ago means she is in tip-top condition, and is available for sale with Y.CO at 8.85m€. She has a beam of 8.4m, draft of 4.1m, weighs 160 tonnes, and has a top speed of 13knots.


If you are looking for a new sailing yacht or are looking to get into the sport, here are some very good reasons why you should buy S/Y MOONBIRD. Reasons come straight from the S/Y MOONBIRD crew themselves.

1: She Sails Well. 

"She sails pretty well for such a big comfortable boat. She sails at 13 knots which makes her pretty fast under sail."

2: She Wins Regattas.

"The boat has actually won most of the regattas she has entered. The crew keep her competitive in the regattas and that type of thing. We do all the superyacht cups. The Bucket Regattas as well."

3: She has survived 3 hurricanes. 

"We have done 32 crossings, Atlantic and Pacific including three hurricanes."

4: Great deck spaces and cozy cabins. 

"The deck spaces are pretty good too. We've got nice shade here and comfortable seating areas. Great when you are not racing, and just cruising.  The accommodation is comfortable. There are four cabins for guests decorated by Rhoades Young.""

5: Sleeps six comfortably.

"She takes six guests comfortably. More than six it just starts to feel a bit crowded."

6) She is a Dubois & Fitzroy. 

"It's Dubois Design. Built by Fitzroy in New Zealand. These guys are a famous sailing yacht team."

7)  A new refit makes her almost brand new. 

"Two years ago the boat went through a massive refit.  New mast, lots of interior and engineering work. Rebuilt the main engine, and new generators. Paint and lots and lots of it."

8) Great Crew. 

She has a great crew – captain, chef and crew - we know we met them.
