Broker's Comments

Boatshed Midi Canals is pleased to offer this Moody 40 sailing yacht for sale. It was a real pleasure to be welcomed aboard this exceptional yacht by her very caring owner. Attention to detail and thoughtful modifications to an already well respected Angus Primrose design are abundant. The work undertaken spanned 2003-4 &5 and the maintenance ever since speaks for itself. A live aboard cruising yacht that has benefited from a professional refit and clever improvements making it a really interesting proposition. Equally suitable as a live aboard or extended cruising yacht (she already has 4 trans Atlantic crossings under the keel) it is going to be a real pleasure to accompany viewings of this yacht. For further information and appointments to view, please contact Graham WHARMBY your broker at Boatshed Midi Canals.

Boatshed Midi Canals est heureux de proposer ce voilier Moody 40 à vendre. De trouver ce bateau et rencontrer son propriétaire à la fois enthousiaste et attentionné été un vrai plaisir. En qualité de maitre d’oeuvre et maitre d’ouvrage il a géré un refit quasi total pendant les années 2003 à 2005 et apporté des améliorations astucieuses sur un plan Angus Primrose déjà bien réputé. Dix ans plus tard le soin et l’entretien après les travaux sont évidents. Un voilier habitable pour les vacances ou à l’année pour les voyages au long cours (il a déjà quatre transats. sous sa quille). Qu’importe votre programme de navigation, je me ferais un plaisir d’accompagner les visites de ce bateau.
