M/Y Blue Moon

Blue Moon was built by Feadship and delivered to her owner in 2005. She has an interior designed by Donald Starkey and can accommodate 12 guest and 14 crew members. The owners suite is very large (1,200 Sq. Ft) for a boat of this size.


The yacht is powered by 2 Caterpillar engines. Which bring her a top speed of 16 knots. Her cruise speed is 13 knots.  She has a range of 4,700nm.

The luxury yacht has a steel hull and an aluminum superstructure.

The Owners Third Yacht

Superyacht Blue Moon is the third and largest yacht for the Duchossois family. All yachts were built by Feadship. The first was the 47.5 meter Mi Gaea. Which he purchased second hand and renamed Blue Moon.

In 2000 he had his first new build project delivered. A 50 meter (165ft) motor yacht, built by Feadship’s Royal van Lent.

As the owner Dick Duchossois is now more than 90 years old, he will probably not build another one.

Yacht Blue Moon Interior

And in 2005 the current Feadship Blue Moon was delivered. Also by Van Lent. The yacht has an impressive tubular elevator. With a large skylight in the sundeck roof. Allowing direct sunlight to reach the elevator.

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

Is She Available for Yacht Charter?

The boat is available for yacht charter.  All photos on this page are made in Montreal by Robert Shea. Interior photos by Northrop and Johnson.
