This week, Moon Sand caught the attention of Londoners as she moored just downstream of Tower Bridge and outside of Butler’s Wharf, not far from central London’s only marina, St Katharine Docks. This is the same spot where Nobiskrug’s Triple Seven was spotted by Superyachts.com some months ago.
Moon Sand has been a different kind of flagship for Lurssen. The smallest superyacht delivered by the German yard this year - particularly after the recent delivery of 115m Ahpo (formerly Project Enzo) - Moon Sand represents an important step in reestablishing the brand as a serious contender for yachts in the 55 - 75m build bracket.
“Few people know we build more yachts under 90m than above 90m,” Peter Lurssen told Superyachts.com at this past Monaco Yacht Show, “We’ve always had the strategy of trying to serve the whole width of the market - or length in this case.”
Designed by British studio Bannenberg & Rowell, Moon Sand is in every respect customised to reflect her owners’ requirements and ‘developed sense of spatial awareness and colour’. We will be keeping a close eye on this superyacht as she makes her way back down the Thames to adventures further afield.
