Moonyeen was built for Messrs Homer by Thornycroft UK at Hampton on Thames and launched in 1937. It was described in Motor Boat as having a hull construction of mohogany on helm timbers, teak decks and varnished teak bright-work with a striking rounded stem, sometimes known as a “Bremen Bow”, complemeted by an attractive “Cruiser Stern”. The companionway leads to an elegant spacious salon with inusually high headroom for a boat of these dimensions. Above, the owners’ cabin has a rare sliding, raised glazed hatch that provides natural lightting, a very rare feature aboard a motor-yacht. This is an elegant way to host friends…
