Moon Palace


Galveston, Texas

1989 Jefferson 65 Motor Yacht Moon Palace

"Moon Palace" the correct name for this exceptional yacht because a Palace she is! Upon viewing this yacht in person you will realize that her current owner is a perfectionist. Throughout his ownership, this yacht's systems and mechanicals have been continuously upgraded. As she has been kept in a covered slip, her brightwork is in perfect condition. If you are one that truly appreciates wood craftsmanship you will marvel at the unique and world-class woodcraft exhibited on this incredible yacht. This yacht was originally built For the Mossberg Family, as in Mossberg Firearms in 1989. The current owner took possession about 10 years ago and has spent an incredible amount of money to totally customize this yacht.

If you are one that appreciates “old world” craftsmanship, spacious and well-appointed accommodations, and a yacht than you can use immediately, this is your next boat. I can personally think of nothing you would need to do to her because it has already been done! Please contact me to arrange a private showing of this masterpiece. You will not regret it.

United Yacht Sales is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Galati Yacht Sales. It is offered as a convenience by this broker/dealer to its clients and is not intended to convey direct representation of a particular vessel
