MOON GLOW is a long range pilothouse flybridge fiberglass motor yacht with excellent accommodations for 6 in the owner’s party and 3 crew. The interior woodwork is stained oak paneling with solid oak bullnose framing.  The salon sofa has been recently recovered in leather upholstery, the salon carpet is new and all bed coverings have been replaced. The enclosed pilothouse gives entry to the crew quarters (forward). The main-deck galley is fitted with full size appliances as well as a countertop pass-thru that services the dining area and may be closed off for privacy.

The salon/dining area is furnished with a formal dining table for 6, a large U-shaped sofa group and, adjacent, beautiful cabinetry where a wet bar, entertainment center, and storage are located. 

The teak-decked aft deck is comfortable, furnished with a large varnished table and 6 chairs, a cabinet with refrigerator/freezer, and a staircase to the large cockpit.  The flybridge features a 5,000 lb. davit, 18’ dinghy, sunning pad, dinette, two steering stations and a large aft area for additional toys

Walk Through

MOON GLOW may be boarded from either side deck, forward, or from the cockpit, aft. All decks are fiberglass covered with teak and are wide and easily navigated for docking or passage.  The pilothouse is forward and features full electronics and a settee on the starboard side for guest or crew when traveling.  The entrance to the crew quarters is forward on the port side and offers private Captain’s cabin and office and quarters for 4.

Aft from the pilot house, the large galley provides a pass-thru with three stools that may be closed off for privacy.  The adjacent dining area and salon are furnished with a varnished wood dining table for 6, a large U-shaped sofa, and cocktail table. A comprehensive entertainment center on the port side incorporates a TV, stereo equipment, wet bar, dedicated liquor & glass storage, a wine locker, and ample general storage in cabinetry that may be closed with double doors.  Stairways lead below to the three staterooms, each with ensuite head and shower.  Crew access to these staterooms is through the Captain’s office.

The aft deck and cockpit may be accessed from the salon, from the wide side decks, or via the aft ladder to the bridge.  The engine room is entered from the cockpit or a hatch in the teak aft deck and offers passage to the utility room with washer/dryer and freezer and work area.  An aft deck ladder leads to the flybridge, as does an interior staircase from the pilothouse.  The bridge has a second helm with docking controls, a mast with crow’s nest, 18’ dinghy and 5000 lb. davit, a dinette, large sunning pad, and an excellent area aft for more toys or sunning.

Salesman's Comments

MOON GLOW has been completely been updated with all major items being repaired or replaced.  It now represents a yacht that is ready-to-go. The only updating needed is new electronics and a décor to the taste of the buyer.  This is an excellent value for a large fiberglass yacht.
