Broker's Comments

The Moody 31 Mk1 is the traditional aft-cockpit version of the popular design by Bill Dixon. They are strong, sprightly boats with good accommodation and make excellent family cruising yachts. Her strong construction and excellent finish means she has lasted well.

This is a clean & tidy example, with tiller helm and fin keel delivering a roomy cockpit and excellent sailing manners. She is kitted-out as normal and is well set-up with everything such as dinghy and outboard included in the sale.

Extra's are available; boat-cradle, charts & pilot guides.

These boat details are subject to contract.
