Luna, this beautiful custom ketch built by Astillero Ortholan in Argentina, and designed by Manuel Campos was constructed to sail the world’s oceans in comfort and class. Rigged to be sailed easily by two, her generous layout can accommodate many. As a bonus, she has a permanent Jones Act Waiver to charter in the United States, and is USCG documented.
She was just relaunched from the Port Townsend Shipright’s Coop, in Port Townsend, Washington, after extensive upgrades including new aluminum bulwarks, teak cap rail, rebuilt transom, recaulking and re-fastening above and below the waterline, wood plank repair and spar refinishing.
The Deck Space on Luna is vast and well laid-out for sail-management, maneuvering and for relaxing and enjoying the ride. The side decks are wide and easy to move fore and aft with 29” high stainless steel Life-Lines topped with 3” wide Teak Hand Rails from the stern to the mainmast and 29” stainless steel Tube Life-lines forward to the bow giving a very secure and protected feel when maneuvering aboard. Hinged Boarding Gates are located amidships on the starboard and port sides as well as on the stern. Blue/Grey rubberized non-skid paint covers the teak decking for ease of maintenance.
The U-Shaped Aft Seating Booth is impressive, comfortable and seats up to 12 people around a large table for meals and socializing. The table is fixed to the trunk cabin roof with a stainless steel pedestal and the table is fixed with low fiddles to keep things from rolling off under way.
Luna can be operated from either inside the Pilothouse or she can be operated from the Steering Station on the Aft Deck where the Genoa, Staysail, Main and Mizzen Sails are all led for double-handing under sail. The Aft Helm Station hosts a traditional chromed bronze Pedestal with a Binnacle Compass and a varnished Teak 42” Wheel.Port Townsend Boat Company
