The yacht Blue Moon was built by Feadship and delivered to her owner Richard Duchossois 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 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. In 2000 he had his first new build project delivered: a 50 meter (165ft) motor yacht, built by Feadship’s Royal van Lent.


A Glass Tubular Elevator

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.





Charter Blue Moon

As the owner Dick Duchossois is now more than 90 years old, he will probably not build another one. The yacht Blue Moon is available for charter. Enquire now, for your ultimate charter experience! All photos on this page are made in Montreal by Robert Shea. Interior photos by Northrop and Johnson.
