Sanlorenzo’s First 460 Explorer Superyacht MOKA successfully completes her maiden voyage

February 02, 2016

Written by zuzana

Italian shipyard, Sanlorenzo, is thrilled to announce that their first 460 Explorer superyacht MOKA has successfully completed her maiden voyage that brought her to her new US Owner. Following over 5,600 of navigation, a month at sea, of which 19 whole days of sailing at the average speed of 12,5 knots, MOKA arrived in Florida on January 10, 2016.

Sanlorenzo's First 460EXP MOKA

Sanlorenzo’s First 460EXP MOKA

Tailor made to her Owner’s specific requests, MOKA has a steel displacement hull and aluminium superstructure that come together to create an impressive volume of 460 gross tons for an overall length of only 42,8 meters. Keeping with the explorer philosophy, the superstructure is located further forward than on conventional yachts, leaving an ample aft deck capable of carrying a tender of dimensions far exceeding what one would expect on a vessel of this size. In addition to the main tender, the aft deck can host a collection of water and land toys, allowing guests and crew to explore the visited areas. Once at anchor and free of equipment, the aft deck becomes a wide solarium complemented by a large swimming pool with counter current swimming capability.

Spanning over five impressive decks, MOKA provides comfortable accommodation across five cabins on the lower deck, and a generous Owner’s suite on the main deck. Moreover, the lower deck also hosts a fully equipped gym, and there are two salons on the main and upper deck respectively.

Perfect for long range cruising, the first 460Exp MOKA has an increased autonomy. Her CAT C32 Acert develop 970kW (1,319mhp) and allow her to cover over 4,000 miles at an economic speed of 11 knots.

Five units have been already sold since MOKA’s debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2015 in September. All of these are currently under construction.
