Broker's Comments

Moody's have a great reputation for being sturdy, safe, reliable sailing boats with great accommodation while still being able to put in a turn of speed.

This is a great example and whilst being built in 1985 has many modern features and appears half her age.

Equipped for any requirement, whether that be a day sail or a prolonged journey, she has everything to accommodate 6 people in comfort. Plenty of deck space and room in the cockpit as well as spacious cabins and living space.

She was out of the water in 2021 when she was copper coated and had new anodes; and more recently in 2024 to be inspected.

Definitely a great example and one to be seen
