Blue Moon

We live a few steps from Kingston’s harbourfront and Lorraine and I walk our Golden Retriever alongside the waterfront everyday. In addition to the hundreds of Prevost coaches that come into the city every month during the summer, there are many nice boats that dock in Kingston.

Mostly lake cruisers and sailboats.

Every now and then, a super yacht drops by.

The Blue Moon arrived into Kingston this morning. The yacht was custom built in 2005 for Richard Duchossios. He is currently 96 years old and so the yacht now goes out on a charter basis for roughly $395,000 USD per week plus expenses.

The yacht is 198 feet long with a 36 foot beam and 1,102 gross tonnes. The Blue Moon can sleep up to 12 guests in 6 staterooms with a crew of up to 15.

If you are interested in the charter, YachtCharterFleet would be pleased to help you out. They have all of the details including a photo gallery of the interior which you can find here.

The Duchossios Group is privately held with assets and investments valued in excess of $3 billion.

By comparison, spending $75 million on a yacht could be viewed as almost frugal.
