About this Moody 33
The 33 MK1 is the smallest of a range of yachts launched by Moody in the early 1970s.They aimed to build on Moody's reputation for quality construction, seaworthiness, space and good sailing qualities. The designs were wide beamed for the time allowing the possibility of accommodation which was previously almost unknown in a boat of this size. The centre cockpit provides a safe and dry base while underway and the separate aft cabin allows for privacy well suited for family cruising. The sale includes a yard trolley for storage ashore.
Moody's are well known for quality construction. GRP hull and deck in white with light grey non slip decking. The distinctive flair of the bow makes for a dry boat when underway. Fin keel. Centre cockpit with binnacle mounted wheel steering. Companionway to main saloon and separate access to twin bedded aft cabin. Stainless steel push-pit and pull-pit linked by twin guard wires for security while moving about. Self draining well in the bow with windless and twin bow roller. Interior construction is of wood, much of which was renovated in 2006 - 08.
The boat is powered by a Perkins 43hp inboard diesel engine reconditioned in 2009. A bank of three 12 volt batteries supplies power for engine start and domestic use. Batteries are charged via alternator or smart charger running on shore power.

Accommodation and layout
The Moody 33 provides accommodation for up to 7 in 2 cabins plus saloon berths. The fore-cabin has a double / twin berth V-berth and a good variety of storage space. A spacious full width heads compartment separates the fore-cabin from the saloon. Sea toilet with holding tank, basin and storage.
In the saloon, to port is the galley which has a stainless steel sink with pressurised hot and cold running water, two burner hob / oven and fridge. Water is heated either via the engine or an emersion heater. Aft of the galley is the navigation area and a single quarter-berth. To starboard is the U-shaped settee and dining table. These convert to a second double berth when required. Eberspacher cabin heating extends the comfortable use of the boat into the colder months.
Outside, the cockpit benefits from a full enclosure which greatly adds to the living space. From the cockpit a separate hatch leads to the twin aft cabin which provides a sanctuary from the rest of the crew.
