Broker's Comments

This Moody 40 had a major refurbishment and upgrade of equipment from 2009 to 2012.
The inventory is very extensive, as can be seen from the detailed information above.
This Centre Cockpit Yacht is a very capable seaworthy go anywhere yacht equipped, if required, to do just that.
The accommodation is ideal for long distance cruising; or of course just plenty of room for friends and family. The aft master cabin has a large double berth, ample storage space and an en-suite heads with shower and hand basin. The forward cabin V-berths convert to another double, and then the port side cabin has twin bunks. The large saloon area with well-equipped galley and nav. station makes this a very comfortable yacht.
Appointments to view can be arranged in advance 6-days a week by contacting the Boatshed Essex office direct.
