Broker's Comments

The Moody 28 is known for speed, sailing performance, comfort, strength, stability and stylish appearance. She comfortably sleeps six and has a great interior. Yatching World 1985 concluded, “The Moody 28 footer is one of the nicest we have tested. Modern good looks are complemented by the most comfortable interior.”
We were full of expectation when we went to list this boat, and we were not disappointed. Currently owned by an engineer, we could see how well she has been looked after and maintained. She is a great family boat, in very good condition. She has sailed around Land’s End, over to Ireland, and, has won races. If you are looking for a Moody 28, come and look at this one and you won’t be disappointed!
