Moonshadow is a Deerfoot 2-62, built in 1986 by Scandi Yachts, Finland. She'd had just two owners until we came along. While waiting for our San Diego home to sell, Deb and John took a trip to Florida to do some preliminary looking at boats to cruise the world. We looked and Moonshadow last and before leaving, wrote an offer.
A few weeks later, we were toasting our new home with George and Merima, Moonshadow's previous owners who'd cruised her around the world.
Now, Moonshadow is our home, and we love her!
She sails like a dream
And comes with a "swim up" bar!
The Deerfoot Design was inspired by Steve and Linda Dashew who have cruised the world.
They used their experiences to conceive a range of fabulous cruising designs that are tailored to couples like us who want to cruise aboard strong, fast, safe, and easily handled yachts that also serve as their home. Check out the Dashew's website.
Moonshadow, Interlude a 74' Deerfoot, and Wind Horse, Steve and Linda Dashew's personal 83' aluminum FPB power yacht.
Moonshadow motors along at 8.5 knots leaving a minimal wake...
...and easily sails in the 9s and 10s with two fingers on the helm...
Sailing should always be fun. Even when it's your home!
..all of which allows us more time to enjoy the destination...
...and the many new friends we meet!
