Dolphin Yachts sells MOONRAKER, the magnificent sailing yacht custom built in New Zealand for unlimited worldwide cruising. The builder Kelly Archer was chosen for his international reputation for high quality yachts, and because of his policy of building only one yacht at a time, providing total focus on one project. Aluminium hull, combining light weight and great strength, was built to Lloyds hull construction certificate requirements HCC.
Designed to go off the well-worn cruising paths of easier climates – sea keeping abilities are well proven in the Van de Stadt pedigree. The pilothouse provides a sheltered watch keeping position with good visibility around the boat. The deep cockpit is safe and dry when sailing, seats six for al-fresco dining and is protected by a strong all-weather fixed bimini. In addition she is perfectly equipped to be self-sufficient for long periods. Despite her size the yacht is easily handled and maintained by a small crew.
