Hull, Deck & Superstructure Construction:
The Shipman 63 are constructed using materials and processes that are well in advance of her peers.
Using SP Systems pre preg SPRINT carbon, normally found in top level racing yachts and rarely found in cruising yachts.
The mould is produced using a 5 axis milling machine, giving the most accurate and symmetrical hull form possible.
Hull to deck and bulkheads are epoxy bonded together giving ultimate strength.
Along with the grid system for the keel attachment, ultimate low weight and strength are achieved to give you a performance yacht that is safe and strong.

LUNNA A has the fixed keel option, for more interior volume and low maintenance.

Summary of Accommodation:
The interior of LUNNA A is a very bright and airy finish with painted surfaces in white with teak highlights and subtle hints of blue carbon weave on the inside of the hull.
Description of layout from forwards:
2 Crew in one cabin with en-suite heads.
Bunk beds for 2 crew and storage below.
Direct access to the deck through hatch.
LUNNA A was originally specified with a twin forward cabin for the first owner. The current owner has removed the starboard single and created a double on the port side with additional cabinetry the centreline with combined storage.
A B&G FFD at the end of the bed gives a readout of the wind conditions, and also an airconditioning control for the cabin.
There is an additional sofa berth on the starboard side as per the original.
The owner’s cabin has mirror image large storage units forward of the berths and have bed height hull windows with built in screens.
A full width techma heads forward of the main cabin, with heads on one side and basin opposite, and full length mirror that is useable in the man cabin with the door open.
Through a door forward is another full width shower room with waterproof doors and watertight door leading to the crew cabin.
In the saloon, panoramic deck windows give visibility all round and smaller hull windows give glimpses of the horizon when seated.
LUNNA A has a smaller instrumentation area in the main saloon where the standard Shipman 63 has a dedicated raised chart table. This is in order to fit in the extra ensuite for the third cabin. The upshot of this gives a longer galley area, the ensuite heads and there is adequate room on the saloon table for a full chart.
There is a seat at the chart table that stores under the chart table when not in use.
2 x Twin, both with ensuite port and starboard.
The twin beds can be combined to make doubles.
Both cabins have hull windows with screens and a deck hatch for ventilation and also a small hatch into the cockpit.
Heads have showers and plenty of room.
LUNNA A is fitted with a carbon mast, boom and retractable spinnaker pole. All of which are in excellent condition.
The EC6 carbon standing rigging has a long life and minimal maintenance.
The benefits of carbon rigging are as much for the cruising sailor as the racing sailor. As righting moment is increased, reefing is less urgent, and pitching into a headsea and rolling at anchor is minimised.
