MIS Moondance - This 1988 Astondoa 81' is a 4 bedroom plus crew quarters yacht with large flybridge and very modern lines for a 30 years old boat.

She has received a major refit by Cable Marine in Fort Lauderdale in 1995 and has received constant upgrades ever since. Over half a million dollars were spent during the 1995 refit which included complete inspection of the hull and superstructure of the boat, new hull and superstructure paint, new stainless steel hand rails throughout, new soft goods, electrical refit, , new generator, etc... Since then, the boat has been used both privately and for charter (Marad waiver comes with the boat).

She has run a very successful charter operation and the owner has kept her in impeccable running condition to the satisfaction of their guests, which insure that her next owner will step on a boat that has been well taken care of and in turn key condition.
