Moon Palace Yacht Description

"Moon Palace" the correct name for this exceptional yacht because a Palace she is! Upon viewing this yacht in person you will realize that her current owner is a perfectionist. Throughout his ownership, this yacht's systems and mechanicals have been continuously upgraded. As she has been kept in a covered slip, her brightwork is in perfect condition. If you are one that truly appreciates wood craftsmanship you will marvel at the unique and world-class woodcraft exhibited on this incredible yacht. This yacht was originally built For the Mossberg Family, as in Mossberg Firearms in 1989. The current owner took possession about 10 years ago and has spent an incredible amount of money to totally customize this yacht.

If you are one that appreciates “old world” craftsmanship, spacious and well-appointed accommodations, and a yacht than you can use immediately, this is your next boat. I can personally think of nothing you would need to do to her because it has already been done! Please contact me to arrange a private showing of this masterpiece. You will not regret it.

Vessel Walkthrough

As you board the aft deck you will see a ladder that leads down to a custom-crafted, oversized swim platform. On each corner of the swim platform are custom safety rails. On the aft deck are two entertainment centers that feature a full wet bar, ice maker, custom lighting and custom wood overhead panels. Both bars are likewise custom-crafted. There is a custom teak dining table with chairs for enjoying memories with your friends and additional seating and tables to take care of those additional guests. As you enter the salon you see a large u shaped sofa to starboard with teak hi/lo table. To port are two occasional chairs and an additional table. Cabinetry to port houses the entertainment center and in the port aft corner is the stairwell to access the master stateroom Below. Forward towards to the pilothouse to port is a large day head with custom-crafted wooden wall panels. Across from the day head is the large wet bar that services the salon and a day berth that can also serve as a captain's berth. Forward of that is the pilothouse, helm, Captains helm seat and a settee for guests to enjoy sharing the forward view while underway. All helm electronics are housed in custom varnished teak pods. Forward of the helm is a stairwell leading to below decks. Forward is a guest stateroom with upper/lower bunks and a private head with a stalled shower. Aft of the forward stateroom you will find all of the necessary amenities to prepare a gourmet meal. Just aft of the galley is the dining room complete with a wet bar, formal dining table with seating for six guests. Aft of the dining room is another guest stateroom that can serve as a large sofa or upper/lower berths. It too has it’s own private head with stalled shower. As you transit the companionway aft you’ll see a unique addition with clear plexiglass panels allowing full view of the port and starboard engines. Further aft is the full-beam master stateroom with a queen berth and ample storage. For this stateroom, there is a spacious head complete with an oversized stall shower. Last, you can take the ascending stairwell from the helm to the sumptuous flybridge. The forward section of the flybridge is fully air-conditioned and fully enclosed with a clear vinyl enclosure. There you will find the upper helm and cushioned lounges port and starboard for additional seating. Aft of the enclosed section you’ll find an open area complete with sun pad, and lounge seating with a varnished teak table. Aft of that area is the on-deck area with chocks for a tender, and two jet skis stowed on custom made chocks, along with a 1500 LB capacity Davit. On top of the flybridge, the hardtop is a mast that can be raised or lowered and storage for two paddleboards.
