You could say Moon Sand was conceived in 1972. That was the year Carinthia VI, designed by Jon Bannenberg, emerged out of her shed at Lürssen’s yard and startled the yachting world. By the following century she had become both iconic and many people’s stated favourite design.
Bannenberg & Rowell developed some iterations of this most famous of profiles and it was one of these that first caught the Client’s eye. Certainly not a slavish reinterpretation, rather an evocation of some of those clean, spare lines. Moon Sand wears her taut surfaces lightly and with a minimum of ornament.
