55m Lürssen M/Y Moon Sand arrives in London

Formerly known as project 13800, the new 55.5 m motoryacht built at Lürssen, M/Y Moon Sand, made her way up the River Thames to Tower Bridge after leaving the shipyard in Germany.

Moored just downstream of the London landmarks Tower Bridge and the Tower of London the instantly recognisable Moon Sand spent a week at the heart of the City’s financial and historic centre.

Lürssen is known for manufacturing the largest yachts in the world but is also actively targeting projects in the 55 to 75 metre range. Moon Sand is a first step in reestablishing the brand as a serious shipyard for yachts in that size bracket as well.

The designers, Bannenberg & Rowell, gave Moon Sand her very distinctive lines for experienced yacht owners who had very precise requirements and a developed sense of spatial awareness and colour. The result: a fully bespoke Lürssen engineered yacht in this sweet spot of the yachting market.
