Rua Moana 26.2m

We are the ocean, a partnership forged on the sea, two peoples coming together across two oceans, two hulls sailing in the same direction. We present ”Rua Moana”.

Exterior styling is by Andrew Ogilvie of Pachoud Yachts, interior design by Kit Carlier Design and Naval Architecture by LOMOcean and Pachoud Yachts.

This superyacht offers the opportunity to leave the everyday world behind and enter a realm of effortless luxury. Launched in June 2020 and with over 4800 square feet of floor and deck space, the moment you step aboard you and your guests will be elevated to a level of privilege that very few people will ever experience.

The fluid lines of its catamaran hull design and computerised ride control systems maximise comfort and fuel efficiency, and at the same time minimise wake disturbance to the delicate coastal ecosystems of her cruising waters. There are generously proportioned outdoor areas, which include a submersible beach platform at the stern, and a large spa pool on the foredeck that can heat to 40 degress in 90 minutes. The upper deck provides a lofty area from which to take in the spectacular natural panorama of our cruising waters.

Even the most minute aspect of Rua Moana’s interior has benefitted from fastidious attention to detail and devotion to effortless luxury. Décor is streamlined and clutter-free, producing a feeling of light and space. Hard surfaces are smooth and sleek, and soft furnishings are lush and inviting. There is room to be social and space for privacy, without compromising either one. There are four guest cabins, each with a King size bed and its own ensuite bathroom. Deep 100% wool New Zealand carpets soften footsteps and minimise sound to enhance the profound sense of peace and wellbeing that embraces you as soon as you step aboard Rua Moana. A chefs galley, indoor and outdoor dining areas, main saloon, media room and wine lounge complete the main floor with a state of the art flying bridge and large outside deck located upstairs.

Environmentally conscious and energy efficient thinking is evident throughout. Rua Moana has been designed from the ground up to minimise her environmental impact. The hull design is extremely efficient enabling her to cruise at 18 - 20 knots using a fraction of the horsepower of similar volume boats. The systems on board have been chosen for energy efficiency, and Rua Moana is able to operate in two modes; quiet ship mode, which takes advantage of DC refrigeration systems, built natural ventilation, stand alone heating systems, etc; and eco-hotel mode, with quiet variable speed generators, inverter brushless DC air-con, low power strip lighting, etc providing the full superyacht services at a fraction of the noise and emissions levels. 


Rua Moana will be chartered in the Viaduct by luxury charter providers Cruise New Zealand.
