Broker's Comments

This beautiful example of a Moody Eclipse 43 is one of its kind.

My first impression was was this boat is absolutely loaded with gadgets and adventure-focused accessories. Things such as custom-built window storm boards, radar arch, push pits with reinforced grab rails and integrated rigid spray hood windows are only a few things to give us a rough idea what this boat was built for and what she could achieve.

The owners of this boat bought her new in 1990 and prepared her for long distance cruises and kept sailing her until few years back, when health issues made these projects difficult and finally led to the decision of retirement.

She crossed oceans on many occasions and all her war scars are visible upon closer inspection. She's been recently antifouled and is now waiting for her new owners to take her out for more great adventures.
