Originally called Hasna, now renamed Lunasea, a 73-metre superyacht was ordered and built for retired chairman and founder of Aussie Home Loans John Symond. After putting the superyacht to full use with family and friends cruising the world’s oceans before selling the superyacht towards the end of 2020 to an American businessman. It said to have cost John Symond a staggering $75million.
Powered by MTU engines providing a top speed of 16.6 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots, with her steel hull and aluminium superstructure gliding through 5,500 nautical miles at 12 knots.
Internally the yacht boasts absolute luxury, built to travel the world with family on board, and it has more amenities than you would expect. Highlights of the amenities onboard include; 8m infinity pool on the main deck aft, a 10-seat cinema on the main deck, a wellness centre with a massage room, a hairdressing salon, an elevator, a sun deck lounge with an inside-outside bar and a jacuzzi.
Lunasea can accommodate up to 12 guests spread between six staterooms, two VIP staterooms, three double cabins and a massive full-beam owner’s suite featuring a private sitting area. Also, the superyacht offers accommodation for a crew of up to 21.
Upon designing the look of Lunasea, previous owners wanted to ensure that the yacht did not look bulky and fat. The superyacht’s external appearance is designed to capture light to help break up the exterior. Lighting placed on the outside and underwater makes the Lunasea sparkle at night. The frameless glass and glass bulwarks used throughout the yacht, allowing even more light to penetrate. One of the most challenging pieces they had to work with was for the 8m infinity pool. Moving further inside, you will find generous living spaces, high ceilings and wide doorways, allowing a sense of freedom and space.
For the family and those lucky enough to be on board, getting to shore or a beach is no problem with a custom made open chase boat and a nine-metre limo tender made for the yacht. Added feature to the limo tender includes electrically descending stairs off the bow for an easy descent at any beach, no need to climb over the sides awkwardly.
