Per the Captain/Builder:

The vision for MOANA was to build a safe, practical, and economical long range family cruiser capable of accessing and exploring remote areas of the world. The vision was exceeded as MOANA has logged over 118,000 miles since her launch. Her range is exceptional; as an example she made a non-stop passage from San Diego to the Marquesas Islands (a voyage of 3,500 nautical miles) at 12 knots and retained a 1,200 gallon fuel reserve upon arrival. Both her interior and exterior reflect a practical elegance rarely found in expedition vessels. 


Entering her spacious salon from the aft deck and immediately to port is a day head w/shower. To starboard is the spiral staircase to the pilothouse and upper deck. The salon proper offers a large dining table forward, a coffee table with large raised settee to starboard, and a gourmet galley with granite-top dining bar with four stools to port. Below to starboard are the king-berth Master Stateroom forward and the four-berth “Chevron” stateroom aft. Below to port is the “Guest-Quad” four- berth stateroom forward and the two-berth VIP aft. All four guest staterooms (capable of sleeping 12) feature beautiful golden teak veneer bulkheads and all have en-suite heads with shower/tubs. The full beam pilothouse offers top of the line electronics, a navigator’s computer station, a four person settee w/table, a private Captain’s cabin with two berths, access to the upper aft deck and to the top of the pilothouse, both with remote steering stations.


Practicality and utility were designed into the spacious and thoughtfully engineered deck areas. Enter the yacht from the dock or from the water via port and starboard landings located just above the water line on each hull. Walk up several steps to the fishing cockpit level which is cantilevered over the water from the main deck, suspended between both hulls. A live bait well, rod holders, tuna tubes and copious storage lockers all create a dedicated fishing area which does not interfere with the daily operation of the vessel. The teak laid aft deck features a large comfortable and popular U-shaped dining area on the center line facing forward. Forward and to starboard are a large custom built-in freezer, work bench, shoe dryer, and entry into the large battery/utility locker. The washer and dryer are built into a custom cabinet to port. Large hydraulic hatches with smaller integrated manual “day check” hatches cover the port and starboard engine rooms. Wide walk around side decks lead forward from both sides of the aft deck; aggressive non-skid and strong stainless steel safety railings provide confidence going forward. The 15’ diesel outboard powered custom RIB is stored “below deck” in a large garage w/ hydraulically operated hatch using the 1500# hydraulic davit. A large sun pad is inset into the hatch cover. Across the foredeck of MOANA between the hulls are built-in watertight storage lockers deep enough to store large fully inflated fenders and excess dock lines, etc. There is a deep (standing headroom) boson’s locker located just forward of the salon windows and aft of the dinghy garage. This storage facility is remarkable in its ability to hold a high capacity of the gear and spare parts necessary to facilitate remote expedition voyages. The access hatch to this locker is flush mounted into the top of the raised foredeck.




The wide 27’ beam allows for a spacious, light, and free flowing salon ideal for either casual or elegant entertaining without sacrificing full walk-around side-decks. Visibility from all salon seating areas is extraordinary due to thoughtful planning and design.

The Master Stateroom is located forward in the starboard hull. Headroom is 8’ allowing the designer to place the elevated king bed athwart-ship which affords the owner comfort and safety at sea and a spacious living area in port or at anchor. The golden teak veneer throughout the yacht was milled from two hand-picked seasoned teak logs; all of the grain is integrated beautifully. Storage is boundless and easily managed for long voyages. The head area is finished in a satin off-white gel coat which reflects the overall design practicality of the yacht.

  • In the event of electrical power loss to the system, there is a back-up manual system to steer the boat. This system uses a manual hydraulic helm pump and removable steering wheel, located next to the work bench. The operator can look through the aft and fwd salon windows to see a clear view of the horizon.
  • A hydraulic oil cooler is located in the stbd lazarette. The cooling water supply is from the stbd main engine, with back up water provided by the bait pump if running on port engine only.
  • Hydraulic oil for the system provided by a 15 gal, aluminum tank under the port, outboard lanai deck hatch. Hydraulic oil is Shell, Tellus 32




Anchor System

Each bow has a heavy duty stainless steel roller and electric windlass with chain wheel and capstan over. The dual capstan setup allows superior warping of forward dock lines port & stbd. The stbd windlass can be operated by a deck switch on the foredeck or by switches at the pilothouse helm or stbd aft control station.

From the pilothouse the captain can see the anchor chain when the anchor is being retrieved, and maneuver the boat to keep the chain angle vertical. From the stbd aft upper deck control station the captain can drop the anchor and run out the chain while maneuvering the boat in a med-moor situation. This allows the captain to set the anchor properly and frees up one more crew to handle the lines in the stern. With two anchors always ready, the boat can be double anchored (bow & stern) when necessary. The stbd anchor is the day to day anchor. It is an 80kg “Bruce” with 455 ft. of high tensile, 7/16” chain. The port anchor is a 50kg “Bruce” with 350 ft. of high tensile 7/16” chain and 500 feet of 1 ¼” nylon line for deep anchoring. The chain lockers are deep and directly under the windlasses. The incoming chain does not need to be flaked down as it self-stacks and never fouls itself in heavy weather. The outboard sides of the chain lockers are lined with heavy rubber matting to prevent “chain slapping” noise or damage to the hulls. Fresh water wash down valves and hoses at bow bullnose, upper aft deck, and fishing deck locker. Salt water wash down/tuna tube piping at port aft boarding platform. Skandvik shower faucet units at port & stbd aft boarding platforms.

Custom built Nautica 15’ RIB DL w/Yanmar D36 Diesel Outboard Engine. The tender is stowed in a garage under the foredeck, with a very large hydraulic hatch over. A special cowling in the bottom of the dinghy locker allows the dinghy to be stowed with the engine vertical, and when flooded with fresh water, makes flushing the engine very simple. The tender is launched or stowed with a Nautical Structures MC 1500 110VAC davit. The davit is fitted with a telescoping mast that allows the boom to recess into the raised foredeck. The boom has a special tang at the nose, for attachment of a manual hoist in case of emergency. The davit can also be a backup system for raising the big garage hatch, using a removable ring fitted into the hatch. The davit is operated with a remote, pendant type controller, with a back-up switch on the winch motor. The winch is spooled with Spectra braided line and Wichard trigger snap shackle.
