MOONBEAM IV HISTORY
Although William Fife Junior designed the last and biggest Moonbeam right before World War I in 1914, the construction of the ship was only commissioned after the war in 1920 by Charles Plumtree Johnson. The outcome was Moonbeam IV, a cutter that shows the characteristics of a racing yacht offshore in combination with the deluxe comfort of a cruising yacht.
Moonbeam IV became a legend due to her extremely successful participation in renowned yacht races. Among others, she won the King's Cup in 1920 and 1923.
However, her most glorious times began when prince Rainier of Monaco became the owner of the Moonbeam IV in 1950. Princess Grace Kelly enjoyed the beauty of the yacht on her honeymoon with prince Rainier. And the fabulous story of Moonbeam IV continues until today. She is one of the very few gaff cutters who kept her original, classic style.
