About this Moody 31


The Moody 31 model was designed by Bill Dixon and built by Marine Projects during late 1985 to June 1991. This vessel is one of the later examples of a Moody 31mkII, commissioned in 1989. The mkII was updated to feature a sugar scoop transom and a forward facing chart table. She has a fin keel and tiller steering, a white GRP hull and superstructure, and was upgraded at the point of original order to feature white/light blue two-tone decks and the optional opening hatch above the saloon table. Well equipped, she is a well proven, well travelled and well set up craft.
