Description/Condition

LUNA DANNS is a great example of the capabilities of Sweden Yachts.  Their engineering capabilities for a yacht with moderately complex systems are well demonstrated, along with exceptional joinery and finish work on the interior, and overall design with three very comfortable staterooms, plus crew.  The Yacht is simple, yet thrilling to sail and extremely comfortable in the center guest cockpit.  She had a comprehensive refit in 2004 and consistent improvements through 2008.  She has been stored by Hinckley Yachts in Portsmouth RI since 2009 with ongoing service; bottom stripped and re-faired, new batteries, all brightwork refinished July 2013, etc.. She is in good condition, ready for final coat of bottom paint and commissioning.

The Sweden 70 is a contemporary classic yacht, with an elegant traditional sheer line and profile, combined with an easily managed but powerful cutter rig and state of the art underbody. The yacht is a visual delight from all perspectives, she serves up exhilarating performance in all condition and her comfortable accommodations are crafted to the highest quality standards.

Sailhandling systems aboard LUNA DANNS are fully automated, with a hydraulic furling Selden spar and hydraulic Selden furling for the staysail and genoa as well. She has a full compliment of Lewmar hydraulic winches, all Lewmar Ocean Series deck hardware, all sailing functions managed from the aft cockpit which leaves the center cockpit fully free for guests and entertaining. With her powerful rig, wing keel and spade rudder, she offers thoroughbred performance on all points of sail.

LUNA DANNS has a comfortable, three-stateroom interior arrangement, with separate crew quarters forward. Interior woodwork is of specially imported Tasmanian Blackwood (Acacia Melanoxinon) with joiner work of exceptional quality, finished in satin varnish. Interior décor is quietly elegant, with custom designer fabrics throughout. Her inventory of appliances, entertainment systems and accessories provide all amenities for comfortable living aboard whether alongside, at anchor or a thousand miles at sea.

In 2004, LUNA DANNS underwent a comprehensive refit, including all new teak decks, paint on all surfaces from the masthead to the keel, new generator, refrigeration, AC system, rigging, running rigging, sails, entertainment system, all canvas on deck and upholstery below and a myriad of other details. She is in excellent condition throughout.
