Moonbeam IV was the fourth, final and largest MOONBEAM designed and built by William Fife Junior for Charles Plumptre Johnson. She is one of the finest Gaff Cutters of the 20th century, the Winner of the King’s Cup, in 1920 and 1923.

First launched in 1914 and commissioned after the Great War, in 1920,she is perhaps best described by Uffa Fox : “No matter whether she is under way or at anchor, MOONBEAM is beautiful to look upon, and combining the speed of a racer with the comfort of a cruiser, is a vessel any sea-man would be proud to own.”

Her beauty is not only skin deep; her stylish interior has the look and feel of a gentlemen’s club. The waxed rosewood paneling, the Persian rugs, the antique lamps and leather-bound books, all combine to provide an old world ambience of Edwardian comfort, in stark and satisfying contrast to the elements outside.
