Broker's Comments

The conclusion of her 2018 Survey stated :
The Yacht..."was considered to be a very good example of this popular cruiser. She has had important upgrades and there is much evidence of on-going maintenance and care."

She has been in the same ownership for 12 years and the current owners have clearly looked after her with many upgrades and recent improvements.

The Moody 30 offers good performance and excellent accommodation for up to six, and makes an economical small family cruiser.

Introduced in 1975, and remaining in production for four years, with about 150 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.

The saloon of the Moody 30 has a dinette converting to a a double berth, and a single settee berth opposite. Add in a quarterberth under the slide-down chart table, and a vee-double in the forecabin, and you have six berths in 30 feet.
