"TU MOANA" vessel

This name is drawn from the native Tahitian language, a Polynesian dialect. Whilst the word "Moana" is the universal Polynesian word meaning 'the sea', "Tu" means 'to stand erect, to be upright or straight' and 'to fit, agree, answer the purpose'. Thus, the Yacht's name literally means 'comfortably upright in the sea'.
This mono-hull cruise yacht is 69,1 mts. long, and offers a high-speed of 16 knots, and an easy cruising speed of 12 knots.
