Construction GRP
Underwater profile Fin
Finish Gelcoat finish

Good looking hull for her age. Introduced 1975, with about 150 built over a four year period, she has the characteristic flared bows and distinctive design that Angus Primrose stamped on all his Moody sailing boats from 27 ft up to 40 ft.
Deep spacious cockpit, wide, uncluttered side decks all make this boat a very comfortable and safe cruiser.
Hand laid white GRP with gelcoat finish and maroon boot topping stripe. Non slip moulding to decks.
Fixed hard GRP spay protector with firm perspex panels providing protection from the elements.

Really spacious and great use of space, allowing for 6 decent sized berths. The saloon is very sociable and will easily seat 6. You can cook a decent meal with the oven and chill out in the cockpit as there is a full cockpit enclosure. The heads is larger than you would normally find on a 30 footer and would easily lend itself to having a shower installed. The upholstery has been updated too, giving her a bright and fresh feel.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A really good example of a Moody 30. She looks as if she has been looked after and loved over the years. She is ideal for extensive family cruising with her long fin keel and excellent accommodation.
She smells fresh and is a very comfortable boat.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
