Broker's Comments

Big Moody's are renowned for their blue water capabilities and this one is no exception. A comprehensive inventory, plenty of accomodation and storage with that solid feel only a 52 footer can give. Just 8 were ever produced so your unlikely to tie up next to another one wherever you are. See "more photos" to view 45 internal and external photos of this vessel.
