Broker's Comments

The Moody 29’s are popular single-handed and family cruisers, spacious for it's length, with a deep bodied hull and steady performance.

A lot has been done to this Moody 29, by the present owner, with upgrades including, the sails, engine and sea cocks. Recent work also included a new fuel tank, rudder refurbishment, new stack pack and main sail.
It was re-engined and professionally installed, with low hours and regularly serviced and maintained.

With an open plan living area and large fold away table, which also makes a double berth; separate heads and forward cabin, there is plenty of space for a family or guests. Nicely thought out navigation station with another small double aft berth giving a potential of seven berths.
