Boat Details

Dixon 73 LA LUNA - semi-custom build, the brief was to provide a capable and easily handled world cruising yacht. Her trademark is her spacious deck saloon and flush deal forward, giving her sleek good looks. The carbon spar and in-boom is easily handled and keeps the weight in the right place. Bill Dixon delivered on the brief with King Marine. The yacht has a slippery underwater profile for rewarding sailing and a great interior with owners, VIP and spacious twin cabin aft, all with en-suite heads and a light and airy crew cabin forward.
