Boatshed Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Moody 34. These are really excellent, nice looking centre cockpit yachts with a well laid out interior. The Moody 34 started life in 1983 and continued in production until 1986 with a total of 165 being built. Production then continued as the 346 which had an identical hull. It was clear when I went onboard this yacht that she has been thoughtfully and carefully looked after. Lines are led aft to the cockpit and several items have recently been replaced or updated. Once again I find myself wondering how a 34’ yacht can feel so big. The forward cabin is a good size but it is of course the light and spacious aft cabin that is the yachts greatest asset. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth and Boatshed Brixham broker.
Boatshed Brixham and Dartmouth are delighted to offer for sale a Sealine SC38. Stepping onboard I was immediately struck by the amount of wood that Sealine have used throughout the boat. The cockpit is very well laid out with more than enough seating and this is good comfortable seating too. All too often seats seem to be an after thought on boats not really taking into account just how the area will be used. In this case you can sit with friends, talk and watch the BBQ at the same time. The engine bay is easily accessed and stepping down into the engine bay it is really easy to access the major items. The twin 300hp D4 will whip you along at a satisfying 34 knots. As you might imagine for a boat of this age it is immaculate in the engine bay. However, it’s below decks in the main saloon and galley area that really sets this boat apart. The large overhead skylight floods the saloon with light and there are also large rectangular ports to let even more light in. The woodwork below is washed walnut and the cabin doors have that satisfying solid feel to them. In summary I can do not better than quote Motor Boat Monthly whose verdict was –“Sealine's SC series is officially the most exciting thing to happen to sportscruisers in years.” Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
Boatshed Brixham are delighted to offer for sale an exceptional Redbay Stormforce 11.
Boatshed Brixham are delighted to offer for sale a well-presented Jeanneau 40DS. The 40DS, like her slightly larger 43DS, is extremely spacious and the three cabin and two heads layout makes excellent use of space especially for the larger family where the children for example, might prefer their own cabin.
Boatshed Brixham are delighted to offer for sale a Jeanneau Merry Fisher 695. These are really great boats and are perfectly suited to family cruising, fishing or just pure enjoyment. Visiting this example on a fine sunny day it was clear to see why the Merry Fishers are so well liked. The deep safe cockpit, and a well laid out wheelhouse with seating for two at the helm makes these boats ideal for day trips or even weekending. Forward are the enclosed heads with double berth to starboard and single to port. This 695 is one owner from new and has been maintained by Volvo main dealers. Appointments to view can be booked in advance 6-days a week directly with Paul Singer your Boatshed Brixham and Boatshed Dartmouth broker.
