Advertiser's comments

The Moody 30 offers good performance and excellent accommodation for up to six, and makes a lovely family cruiser. Introduced in 1975, and remaining in production for four years, with 162 built, the Moody 30 has the same distinctive high-volume hull style, with very flared bows, of all the Angus Primrose designed Moodys from 27 ft up to 40 ft.

"Moody Rose" was the Southampton Boat Show boat and is in lovely condition throughout and has been well maintained. New engine in 2005, New mast and rigging 2006 and reupholstered in 2001 add value to this big volume family cruising boat. She is ready for many hours of fun on the water.  Recently surveyed and described as "very good example, structurally sound and very well equipped".
