49′ Custom Arctic Explorer
BVI Yacht Sales Overview
1984 49′ Custom Arctic Explorer ‘Tenera Luna’
‘Tenera Luna’ represents your unique opportunity to own a beautifully designed and constructed Italian built steel Polar Explorer Yacht, custom built in 1984 in Viareggio shipyard using marine grade Steel. She was built and designed to explore the high latitudes as well as for the Long Distance Blue Water passages needed to reach them.
Certain unique design and construction features have ensured great strength and longevity; for example, the yachts interior is isolated from direct contact with the hull and structure by stainless steel brackets or stringers, as well as having all through-hull fittings welded to the hull, and further the interior of the hull above the waterline is insulated with sprayed polyurethane foam.
Unlike many steel vessels we see on this ‘side of the pond’ that are home built, ‘Tenera Luna’ is professionally constructed by one of the best yards in Europe, and has a beautifully finished Teak wood interior. She has tankage for diesel and water sufficient for long passages, and has a range of about 900 nm under the Yanmar 105 hp diesel, which has only 2700 hrs.
She comes with a good set of working sails, a spare mainsail, as well as a trysail, a yankee, and a Genoa. She also comes with a brand new 6 hp Suzuki four stroke outboard engine, for the tender. ‘Tenera Luna’ has already been to the Antarctic, Micronesia, Latin America, and The Mediterranean, and is presently located in the Caribbean. Always very well maintained and in good condition now, she has recently had the bottom prepped, primed and painted.
Featuring a large aft stateroom, with en-suite bathroom, a large galley located to port, while the main saloon features a settee and pilot berth to port, and a dining table to starboard with seating that converts to two more beds. On the starboard side of the companionway there is a well outfitted nav station as well as a fridge/freezer unit. The forward cabin features two bunk beds on either side with hanging wardrobes forward on either side, with an en-suite bathroom in front. Forward of that is a very large sail, storage locker with access from on deck, and forward of that is the anchor locker and windlass.
If you are looking for a really strong, well built yacht that is capable of going anywhere anytime, at a very competitive price, this may be the yacht for you .
