Broker's Comments

This superbly presented and maintained vessel represents an opportunity to purchase the sturdy and robust popular British cruiser from the much admired Moody Stable and designed by Bill Dixon

A Sailing Today quote: "The Moody 34 was, and still is, a very popular cruising yacht that holds her value well, partly because she was designed for the purpose and not created to meet a budget. She is ideal for a couple or a small family and will look after you well offshore thanks to her stability, ballast ratio and conservative sail area and rig"

With the benefit of a new 37.5 hp Nanni engine in 2010 and constant up to date maintenance, this is one of the best presented boats I have personally viewed and should be an excellent all round cruising yacht and good financial investment for the future."
