Moonstone is a rare offering of a 39ft Hans Christian Pilot House and is located in Mathews, VA. With her dark green hull, bowsprit and wooden bulwarks, she is a head-turner. The hull is (thick) solid fiberglass, she was built in the days when 'more was better'. With full keel, canoe stern, high bulwarks, long bowsprit to increase sail area, cutter rig, this vessel is dry, sails well and is sea-kindly. The ability to steer her from the cockpit or from inside make her ideal for high latitude sailing. Her interior layout is unique and would allow a crew of 4 to live comfortably. 

She is in splendid condition having had 2 major refits since 2012.  The previous owner started the process from 2012 - 2014.  She was trucked from California to South Carolina where she sat on the hard for some years until the current owners bought her in 2017.  They completed numerous, thoughtful, upgrades between 2018 and 2020, making this a ready-to-go blue water cruiser. 

The 75 HP Yanmar 4JHX-TE engine has 92 hours
The Westerbeke 5.5 KW Generator has less than 50 hours

Some upgrades (see full specifications for a full list):

Aircon (2 Units)
High Output (125A) Alternator
New electronics (2018)
Harken Furling forestays (2018)
6 Firefly House Batteries (2018)
