Broker's Comments

This looks a great example of these very popular Moodys and popular for lots of great reasons! A good, solid sailing performance, coupled with great accommodation makes her a fantastic all round prospect for a couple, family or group of friends to take away for short hops, or longer passages.

She had brand new keel bolts and was anti fouled in March 2019 and a new sprayhood is on the way!

As you'll see in the photos, her shelves and lockers are all crammed with lovely sailing gear - every last piece of it is included in her sale!
