Broker's Comments

The smallest of the production Moodys, the Moody 27 is a useful, small family cruiser that still looks modern, despite the design dating back to 1981.

This boat was designed by Bill Dixon with the famous build quality of Moody Yachts, and designed with a fast hull and a good ballast ratio to make her both stiff, seaworthy and sea kindly.

Her accommodation consists of 6 berths in two separate cabins with good headroom throughout (including the large toilet compartment).

This bilge keeled vessel is a superb example. She has been in the care of fastidious owners as is evidenced by the accompanying photographs.

Currently ashore, but ready to be launched, she represents a fine and good valued opportunity for someone looking for a family yacht of this type.
