One of the world’s largest dedicated luxury explorer yachts, the 115 metre superyacht Luna, constructed in 2010 at Llyod Werft in Germany, has departed the port of Bremerhaven today where she has been since October 2014 having on board systems upgraded and completely finished in a shiny new coat of paint by Thraki Yacht Painting, with her teak decks renewed by DUCA Solutions. Her first port of call is Kristiansand in Norway where bunkering will take place. Superyacht photographer Christian Eckardt sent us some of these exclusive images of the yacht being escorted through the mouth of the Weser River.
The yacht has been sighted departing on routine sea trials over the past few months, and has been seen preparing for her final departure over the last few days.
With an interior designed by Donald Starkey and exterior by Newcruise Design, Luna is one of the world’s largest and most magnificent explorer yachts. She provides accommodation for up to eighteen guests in the utmost luxury, with every desire being catered to by her considerable crew and staff of 49. Guests are accommodated over nine en-suite guest cabins fitted with sophisticated natural woods and stone.
Her substantial aft deck hosts an opulent leisure area, where the beach club leads down to a spacious swim platform at the water’s edge for the guests convenience - an impressive feature when considering the vast size of the vessel. This deck also includes a large swimming pool and sunbathing area. The ship’s wide range of tenders and water toys include three Jet skis, six sets of scuba diving equipment, two Seabobs and an impressive six tenders in total.
All of the equipment can be launched from the large aft door as well as two additional side doors. She has a cruising speed of 16 knots, a maximum speed of 22 knots, and a superb range of 9500 nm.
