General Description

Luna is a fifty-foot schooner with a center cockpit, schooner-rigged, and a variable draft swing keel controlled by a hydraulic ram. She is well-suited for extended blue water cruising.

Luna is a center cockpit, schooner-rigged, fifty-foot fiberglass sailboat with a variable draft swing keel controlled by a hydraulic ram. The vessel was designed by Dick Carter (designed several Southerly Yachts) and originally constructed to RINA standards by Lu Crestitalia S.p.A in Ameglia, La Spezia, Italy. She was launched at Cantieri Navali de La Spezia, Italy in 1980. She is solid. She loves the wind and handles rough weather smoothly. She has circumnavigated and spent most of her life in the Caribbean.

LUNA, one of the later Dick Carter offshore designs, is a 50’ Schooner showcasing some groundbreaking innovations for the time: it sports a “boomless” Luna Rig that carries a furling, self-tacking headsail on each forestay as well as a variable draft swing keel.

Luna was updated in 2005 and 2023. She sleeps 8 in four cabins and has two heads. 

The lead variable draft swing keel allows for a deep, powerful, ocean-going draft of 9.5’ (2.85m), while the retracted draft of only 4.5’ (1.4m) allows for entrance to otherwise inaccessible locations. Imagine the possibilities!
