The owners of Moondance provide a luxury custom charter service in Auckland New Zealand for travelers seeking a unique vacation or business charter experience at sea. Launched in 2016 the luxury 23m power cat has won multiple prestigious awards, including the Asia Boating Award for the world's best multi-hull motor yacht for her size. With a cruising speed of 10 knots and maximum 23 knots, the stablising effect of the 'Wave-piercers' result in a smooth and balanced ride in most sea conditions.

Moondance features a contemporary interior that flows throughout the yacht. Working closely with the designers, Captain Mark and wife Jennie positioned two well appointed double state-rooms with independent air conditioning systems and dedicated ensuites. Moondance has approximately 200 sqm of living space to maximise freedom and relaxation in privacy. The distinctive setting of the saloon and modern galley has an atmosphere to behold with light and expansive 180 degree views. Floor to ceiling glass doors open onto the spacious outdoor entertainment area sporting generous seating for covered dining and bar services. Another special feature is a robust elevating platform, that when lowered allows sea level access for guest swimming, snorkeling, and diving. See plan.

Relax in a Jacuzzi on the top deck and enjoy a sundowner at the superbly appointed bar, or simply relax around the eight seat upperdeck conversational table that offers scopic sea views through aft facing folding glass doors.

The attention to detail and quality in every aspect of the design and construction of Moondance provides a safe and adventurous boating experience for the astute traveler.
