Moonshadow, the famed 40-foot monohull, is the rumored gem of Cape Town's seas. With its sleek black hull, polished wood finishes, and distinctive black sails, it stands in a class of its own. Designed as a "day sailor," Moonshadow is the ideal vessel for shorter journeys along Table Bay's picturesque coastline. You'll find Moonshadow moored at 'The Water Club' in Granger Bay, offering the perfect launchpad for exploring the pristine white sands of Clifton's beaches, embarking on adventures into the vast Atlantic, or circling the iconic Robben Island.
Moonshadow Sailing Adventure invites you to savor the thrill of adventure while luxuriating on this exceptional yacht. With a seasoned crew at the helm, you'll not only experience the joy of sailing but also soak in the breathtaking views of the mountains, pristine beaches, and turquoise waters from the spacious deck. And, of course, you'll indulge in the finest wine and pairings that the Cape Peninsula has to offer.
Constructed in 2010 by Moondance in Cape Town, Moonshadow is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. While her exterior exudes the classic charm of a yacht, below decks, she boasts a minimalist design. Coupled with her bulb keel and oversized rig, she performs exceptionally well, even in gentle winds.
