Yacht Description

Not often does a new yacht enter the market that is truly unique and clearly innovative, nudging the enjoyment of the yachting experience even further, if that is possible. The Moody 54 DS is such a yacht, introducing a new concept in monohull design with the salon and cockpit on the same level – referred to as one level living. With skylights that flood the main salon with light, panoramic views all-around, and a huge comfortable cockpit with convertible sunning bed, she offers unparalleled luxury and comfort in a yacht of her size.

MOJEKA is, simply put, a very special boat combining the benefits of a catamaran with the beauty, grace and sailing characteristics of a monohull. Because she is built with public spaces on the main deck and private staterooms below, she actually fits the space of a 64ft boat into a 54ft boat. Hanse, the owner of Moody since ’07, has always been known for high-sided boats. MOJEKA incorporates this design, which translates to extra side windows and well-lit cabins. And when it comes to sailing, shes extremely easy to handle and provides absolute sailing satisfaction unique to a monohull. With her powerhouse genoa, she takes off like a rocket and her gennaker produces maximum speed in lighter wind conditions. There is no question that MOJEKA will become the class for a new level of sailing.

MOJEKA accommodates 6 guests in 3 very comfortable staterooms. Stepping to the lower level, the spacious master with ensuite bath is located forward. A wonderful large skylight directly above the king size bed creates a great view. The bath has a separate shower stall and electric toilet. The portside VIP cabin is virtually equal to the master in size only with less headroom. It also offers a luxurious and spacious ensuite bath and shower. The third guest stateroom with double bed is located starboard side and shares the day head/shower accessed by steps at the rear of the salon, or the other guest heads.

The main level features a very spacious salon with large skylights and expansive side windows which create a 360 degree panoramic view. The large galley has many smart conveniences, all incorporated into the design so they are hidden and out of the way when not in use. In addition there is a coffee and cappuccino maker. Throughout the yacht one finds such niceties as wood paneled walls with upholstered accent, creating a warm and elegant feel. The safety features incorporated into the design include well-rounded corners, handgrips in all the right places, a very high bulwark, solid steel rails and deck cleats that retract when not in use. MOJEKA is an extremely comfortable and safe choice for just about anyone, offering an unusually high degree of protection, even to children.

If you were wondering whether there is special meaning to the name of this lovely yacht, the answer can be found in a beautiful story in which MOJEKAS name sources from the writings about Vasco da Gama, the captain-major of four vessels dispatched by the King of Portugal in 1497 to go in search of spices. The party made landfall in South Africa near the Cape of Good Hope. They found the inhabitants of this country to be very pleasant and hospitable, as they spent time with them waiting for a weather window to round the Cape. When they finally made their departure, the natives bid goodbye by shouting Mojeka, Mojeka again and again, which seemed to bestow best wishes for a safe and successful journey. And so you will find the gracious accommodation of a holiday aboard MOJEKA.

Crew Profile

Captain Tristan Spanier-Marson

From childhood, it was inevitable that Tristan would choose a yachting career. He grew up on the shores of the Indian Ocean in Durban, South Africa. His boating education began when he was just seven years old, crewing on his father’s sailboat. Each summer, he further polished his skippering skills at a youth sailing camp. He also raced Hobie 16’s and took up kite surfing. Despite a life largely dedicated to the sea, he completed his college with a Bachelor of Commerce Strategic Management.

Today Tristan currently holds a Master of Yachts 200 tons Sail, AEC engineering license, Power Boat level 2, Short Range Radio License, and is an experienced marine engineer. His impressive accomplishments are not limited to the yachting industry. He has extensive experience in silver service, working at a restaurant under a Michelin star chef. He also enjoys simple fare, lighting the BBQ up, throwing steak, shrimp and (his personal favorite) ribs on the grill. And he is a bit of an oenophile, learning much about the grape during his internship on a wine farm in Cape Town South Africa.

Tristan excels at the most discreet level of service, but favors interactive charters. The better he knows the guests, the easier it is to customize a great itinerary. He enjoys sharing his knowledge of kite surfing, fishing, hiking, paddle boarding and the best of the Caribbean, on shore and under the sea. Most of all he loves sailing, and high-performance Mojeka is the perfect yacht to harness the wind.

Chef/Stew Logan Dianne Roesle

Logan grew up in the vibrant city of Dallas, Texas, the youngest of three siblings. Her passion for yachting began as a child, cruising aboard the family boat on the lake. She spent many happy weekends out on the water, soaking up the Texas sun. Growing up a city girl on the lake, she always dreamt of life on the ocean. Her childhood vacations to the Caribbean and Mexico inspired her lifelong passion to explore different countries, cultures and cuisines.

As a child, Logan participated in competitive dancing, which provided the foundation for success dancing and cheerleading professionally. In fact, she attended two years at Kilgore College on a dance scholarship. She completed her education with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Merchandising and Business at the University of North Texas in Denton. Pursuant to the yachting industry, she acquired cooking certification at the Gecko Culinary School and completed her Dive Master Qualification. When on charter, and not busy in Mojeka’s galley, she is always eager to take guests, who are qualified divers, out to explore the deep blue.

Logan has an extensive repertoire of cooking techniques and recipes. However, growing up in Texas, so close to the border, Mexican food, or as the Texans call it “Tex-Mex”, is her favorite cuisine. She loves the range of flavors and possibilities within Mexican food, and adapting different, aromatic spices and peppers that are freshly available. With her extensive travels to the South Pacific, Caribbean, and South Africa, she can dish up a truly outstanding, international menu. Whether guests prefer exotic dishes or simple, comfort food, restricted diets or indulgent ones, Logan’s cooking always has guests asking for seconds. Thankfully, sailing, swimming and beachcombing burns a couple of calories.
