LUNA QUEST has been across the Atlantic 4 times and made one circumnavigation with the World ARC 2015/16. She was shipped home from Antigua. I am 73 years old and am hanging up my sailing boots. The yacht has been professionally maintained throughout my 11 years of ownership.
The first owner sailed her to Trinidad in 1991, and upon return to La Rochelle in 1992 laid her up ashore for 7 years.
