Not only does Blue Moon have stylish and modern lines, she is a very capable seaworthy vessel based on a trawler. Blue Moon was built in mainland China by Seahorse Marine, an accomplished vessel designer and manufacturer with over 30 years of experience building comfortable, long-range trawlers as well as heavy duty commercial vessels. Seahorse Marine’s attention to quality and detail led to their selection as builder of several of the award-winning George Buhler designed Diesel Ducks. She boasts a very practical and truly spacious layout that is beautifully appointed with rich, old world teak joinery, traditional teak and holly flooring and modern touches including: granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and LED lighting. The Yard has spent close to 42.000 men/hours to produce and equip this fantastic yacht. Due to the possibility to run this boat with only one of the two engines, the range is close to 3000 nautical miles.
