Specification MOONBEAM OF FIFE III

Comment

The story of the Moonbeams began in 1858 with Moonbeam I & II. In 1902 Charles Plumtree Johnson, an eminent lawyer from London, decided to return to William Fife for the creation of his 3rd yacht. Mr Johnson wanted to race under the new RORC tonnage which included sailing ships with fitted-out interiors. Thus Moonbeam III was launched in 1903, becoming the 491st hull to leave the Fife yard. The result is a magnificent vessel which is now one of the most highly regarded classic yachts in the world. Both her streamlined shape and large sail surface area make for an extremely elegant and unique yacht.

The unique gathering of hundreds of yachts of all ages and all eras in the bay of Saint Tropez, is preparing to celebrate its fifteenth consecutive year in style. Sailors, skippers and boat owners will once again flock to Les Voiles from 26 September to 4 October for one final race of the year within the very special context of the little port in France’s Var region. 


Three hundred yachts will be on the water for an ‘haute couture’ procession, gathering together nearly a century and a half of naval architecture and maritime genius. On show will be the most beautiful boats, the greatest sailors and the most unexpected crews, who come together in their love of beautiful yachts – ancient and modern alike – and delight at seeing them being sailed superbly in an atmosphere of fairplay and conviviality. Such has been the vision of ‘made in Saint Tropez’ yachting every year since 1999.The grand festival of yachting!
