Broker's Comments

The Moody 29’s are popular family cruisers that handle well and are capable seaworthy boats.
A lot has been done to this Moody 29 aimed at making it a good safe yacht; money has been targeted at key items like the sails, the engine, sea cocks, etc.
In October 2017 another engine was installed; a higher than standard horsepower Bukh DV24; it has low hours and was professionally maintained and fitted.
Recent work in 2013/14 has included a new fuel tank, rudder refurbishment, new stack pack and main sail and more; see full details in the listing above.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance directly with the Boatshed Essex office.

You have two 'Moody 29's for sale. One is listed as being built in 1980 and the other 1981. I know it is difficult to get qualified, experienced staff now-a-days but a little research is within anyone's grasp.
The Moody 29 was not built until 1983......ask Primrose?

P.S Will you be selling 'Winter Petunias' this year?
