Moody 31 1985

PRICE £19,000

Bill Dixon design built in 1985 by Marine Projects, Plymouth.  The Moody 31 MKI is a popular cruising yacht with excellent accommodation for her length – Moody built over 300 MkI and MkII. The model compares well on accommodation with modern day cruising boats of around the same size. 

ELBA is the bilge keel version, perfect for exploring Poole Harbour or similar shallow areas but stable and capable for adventures further afield.  Much of her running rigging has just been replaced and hull and deck cleaned and polished ready for the season.

Please contact us for further information or to arrange a viewing – ELBA is afloat on a swinging mooring close to our office in Parkstone so please book a viewing in advance as we need to arrange transport to the mooring.
