Extremely well built in 1999 by Damian McLaughlin, LUNA (ex. GOOSE) has benefitted greatly under her current ownership by thoughtful and continuing upgrades and yearly maintenance by the craftsman of Brooklin Boat Yard. Brand new (summer 2017) North Sails and the addition of a Facnor headsail-furling system is just the most recent example of the numerous improvements to LUNA since being purchased by her current owner. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire what many consider to be the finest example of the design work of NG Herreshoff in near-new boat condition.
