Vintage Yacht MoonBeam III

Welcome to our
Classic Yacht for Sale
Web Site

MOONBEAM OF FIFE III is certainly one of the most successful yachts in the Classic Yacht world.
The story of the Moonbeams began in 1858 with Moonbeam I &II.
In 1902 Charles Plumtree Johnson, an eminent London lawyer, decided to go back to William Fife for the creation of his 3rd yacht taking into account his navigation projects as he wanted to race under the new RORC tonnage which included sailing ships with fitted-out interiors.
Moonbeam III was launched in 1903, it was hull n 491 to leave the Fife yard.
The result was a magnificent yacht which has become one of the most successful classic yachts in the world, participating and winning in many classic regattas.
Her streamlined shape and large sail surface area both make for an extremely elegant and unique vintage yacht.
