Coming to Dun Laoghaire Marina, the sailors' gateway to Dublin city, from the Caribbean after a stop-over at Kinsale, Afloat sources say the gleaming black-hulled yacht will be based in Dublin for the summer.
The impressive yacht is equipped for sailing in High Lattitudes and was built by Fitzroy in New Zealand at their New Plymouth shipyard.
She was delivered to her owner in 2003 and last refitted in 2013. This luxury vessel's sophisticated exterior design and engineering are the work of the Dubois design office. Previously named Moonbird, her luxurious interior was designed by Rhoades Young.
Superyacht visits to Dun Laoghaire Harbour and its marina are becoming more of a feature over the past few seasons as superyacht captains seek different European cruising routes. It has prompted Afloat to suggest Dun Laoghaire Harbour should develop superyacht berthing facilities and go after this international high-end tourism market, it's certainly a lot more of an attractive idea than some previous harbour schemes.
