Broker's Comments

The Moody 30 is distinctive of Angus Primrose designs with her flared bow and heavy displacement making her a robust family cruiser ideal for coastal sailing. 162 were built between 1975-1979 and this is one of the later 30's by Marine Projects in Plymouth.

Simple and straightforward to sail they are well thought of for their seakeeping abilities and below have space for a family with good sized berths and ample storage.

This particular boat has had money spent with keel bolts removed and inspected 2018, saildrive overhaul 2017, standing rigging replaced 2011, new mainsail 2021 (on order) and was re-engined in 1996. She has upgraded electronics and safety equipment and benefits from a wind generator ideal for living on swinging moorings.

She's currently out of the water in a good yard so available for easy inspection
