Over the weekend, Luna, one of the world’s largest dedicated luxury explorer yachts, departed the port of Bremerhaven having finally completed a 16-month refit period.
Constructed in 2010 at the Lloyd Werft shipyard in Germany, Luna’s recent refit saw her on board systems upgraded and her hull refinished with a new coat of paint by Thraki Yacht Painting. Her first port of call will be Kristiansand in Norway where bunkering will take place.
At 115m LOA, Luna is one of the world’s largest examples of a dedicated explorer superyacht. She boasts exterior design by Newcruise Design and interiors by Donald Starkey.
With accommodation for up to 18, guests are catered to by a large crew and interior staff of 49 members, and are housed over none en-suite guest cabins that are fitted with natural woods and stones.
Her aft deck is home to an opulent leisure area with a large swimming pool, sunbathing area and a beach club that leads down to a spacious swim platform, which is impressive for a vessel o this size. There is a vast range of on board tenders and toys, including three Jet Skis, two Seabobs, six sets of scuba diving equipment and six tenders in total – all of which can be launched from the vessel via the large aft door and two additional side doors.
As an established explorer yacht, Luna has an impressive range of 9,500nm. She boasts a cruising speed of 16 knots and a maximum speed of 22 knots.
In the months leading up to her departure on Saturday 13th February, Luna has been sighted departing the port on routine sea trials, and preparing for her final departure over the last few days.
