The Owners Third Yacht

Luxury yacht Blue Moon is the third and largest yacht for the Duchossois family, all built by Feadship. The first was the 47.5 meter Mi Gaea, which he purchased second hand and renamed Blue Moon.

Other features of the yacht are a gym, a Jacuzzis and restored 1972 Riva Aquarama.
