1998 Moody 40 MkII

Hamble, United Kingdom


A really good example of these renowned quality British built family cruisers designed by Bill Dixon. No expense has been spared by the sole owner of this spacious, fully equipped and ready to sail Moody 40 MkII, which has had relatively little use (3-4 months / year) and is now available for inspection on the River Hamble near Southampton. Hull epoxy coated.
