Broker's Comments

A lovely old favourite the Moody 27 with the flexibility that a bilge keeler offers and one that has been well looked after and has a replacement engine and a list of major improvements that has kept her at the top of the list.
Well documented works, well looked after and lots of extras, this Moody 27 is a real find and would give you a great family inshore water cruiser that is set ready to sail.
