The 56-foot Lagoon sailing catamaran Blue Moon earned the "best overall" title at the recent BVI Charter Yacht Show.

"We're so excited that Blue Moon won the best overall award," says Kathleen Mullen of Regency Yacht Vacations, which represents Blue Moon for charter. "She's really nicely fitted out, with lots of spaces that make guests feel comfortable. That boat has a ton of water toys, too."
