Broker's Comments

Built 1997, commissioned 2001. She is a good example of this popular and safe family cruiser Moody 40. She benefits from a good-sized interior and a most wonderful aft cabin with island bed, even for fore cabin is quite substantial in size with vanity unit, ensuite heads shower room and good full length storage. Her saloon offers loads of space and a huge saloon table plus 2 little armchair type seats.
She has a good owner survey from 2022 and standing rigging 2017. What a lot of well built boat she is!
