Broker's Comments

Most striking on stepping aboard this Moody 42 is just how light and airy the spacious deck saloon is.

It is obvious to the keen eye that she has been exceptionally well maintained and indeed has only just been returned to the water following her annual maintenance in July 2016.

She is well equipped with an extensive inventory to go cruising straight away and of course has the tremendous benefit of an encapsulated keel so no keel bolts to worry about.

This aft cockpit, deck saloon Moody 42 was a special build to order and the quality of the era just oozes from her everywhere.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
