1941 Custom Ortholan Motorsailor Ketch

Oak Harbor, Washington


Luna is a gem and a must-see! She was built by Astillero Ortholan in Argentina, and designed by Manuel Campos as a double-headsail Ketch. Luna was built to sail the world’s oceans in extreme comfort and class. She is rigged to be sailed by two people while her deck space can accommodate many comfortably. Luna would make a wonderful 6-pack charter vessel, live-aboard or world voyager for her next owners. The current owners have gone above and beyond to ensure Luna will sail well into the future!

Perfect for Charter Business: For anyone interested in Chartering Luna, she has a permanent Jones Act Waiver to carry paying passengers in the United States! Her USCG Documented length is 65 feet.

The Deck Space on Luna is vast and well laid-out for sail-management, maneuvering and for relaxing and enjoying the ride. The side decks are wide and easy to move fore and aft with 29” high stainless steel Life-Lines topped with 3” wide Teak Hand Rails from the stern to the mainmast and 29” stainless steel Tube Life-lines forward to the bow giving a very secure and protected feel when maneuvering aboard. Hinged Boarding Gates are located amidships on the starboard and port sides as well as on the stern. Blue/Grey rubberized non-skid paint covers the teak decking for ease of maintenance.

The U-Shaped Aft Seating Booth is impressive, comfortable and seats up to 12 people around a large table for meals and socializing. The table is fixed to the trunk cabin roof with a stainless steel pedestal and the table is fixed with low fiddles to keep things from rolling off under way.

Luna can be operated from either inside the Pilothouse or she can be operated from the Steering Station on the Aft Deck where the Genoa, Staysail, Main and Mizzen Sails are all led for double-handing under sail. The Aft Helm Station hosts a traditional chromed bronze Pedestal with a Binnacle Compass and a varnished Teak 42” Wheel.

Entering the Pilothouse, through the aft opening doorway or either of the two side sliding doors, takes you into the gorgeously designed, very comfortable Pilothouse with breathtaking 360 degree visibility in all directions through large windows and port-lights. The Steering Station is well laid-out with comfortable seating for the skipper, a large folding chart table, a settee to port and a large L-shaped settee aft to starboard with a table. There is lots of storage in the cabinets and settees.

Going forward from the Pilothouse, down a few steps, takes you into a very nice, large Salon with two large L-Shaped settees with tables and the view is gorgeous through the large windows and port-lights. Lots of storage in cabinets and under the settees.

Forward of the Salon, down a few steps, takes you to the Dining Area, Galley and Crew Quarters. The Dining Table is large and measures approximately 68” long by 56” wide and is made from Teak with a Holly inlay and has seating for 9 people comfortably. Across from the Dining Table is a large Pantry, Microwave, and drawers and cabinets for lots of storage possibilities. There is an 8 ½’ wide horizontal pass-through for food, drinks etc. from the Dining Area to the Galley on the portside. The entry-way to the Galley is to starboard. Immediately to Starboard upon entering the Galley is a 3-Burner Stove and Oven, open counter-space and 3 large vertical refrigerators, there is also a large horizontal deep freezer compartment forward. To Port, in the Galley, is a long counter-space, a double stainless-steel sink and cabinets and drawers for storage. Forward of the Galley is the Crew Quarters with two Single Berths and lots of storage in cabinets and drawers.

Heading aft from the Salon, down a few steps, takes you to the passageway that accesses the Staterooms. On the portside is the 1st Guest Stateroom with a comfortable single berth, large hanging locker, nightstand and cabinets for storage with two opening ports above the bunk for light and ventilation. To starboard is the 2nd Guest Stateroom with a nice Double Berth, an opening port-light above the berth, storage cabinets, drawers and a private access door to the Guest Head forward. The 3rd Guest Stateroom is aft on the port side with a large single berth, a hanging locker, a nightstand with cabinets and drawers and two opening port-lights above the berth.

The Guest Head is to starboard, across the hall from the 3rd Guest Stateroom, and hosts a marble sink with hot and cold pressure water, a small vanity, a mirrored medicine cabinet, and an electric fresh-water flush toilet. The head is roomy with good lightening and a large opening port-light for air flow and natural lighting.

The Master Head is aft of the Guest Head on starboard just inside a privacy door to the Master Cabin. The Master Head also hosts a marble sink with hot and cold pressure water, a mirrored double door medicine cabinet, storage shelves and an electric fresh-water flush toilet. There is also a full tub and shower!

The Master Stateroom is located at the end of the passageway, in the stern. The Master Cabin, like everywhere else on Luna, is exquisitely designed and comfortable.  There are two full-sized mirrored doors on port that open up to a cedar closet, a very comfortable U-shaped settee w/ sculpted upholstered cushions, a book shelf, storage bins, lots of well-designed storage in cabinets and drawers accompanied by a large comfortable double berth. Above the Master Berth are two large opening port-lights for light, ventilation and staring up at the sky.

Luna is an exclusive, first-class yacht at every turn, on deck and down below. She’s a must see and is an attention getter wherever she goes!  Luna has been INCREDIBLY well-maintained and taken care of and is in turn-key condition!

Luna is ready to voyage anywhere her next owners would like to take her!
