Ever popular Bill Dixon Bilge keel design with a fast hull and a good ballast ration to make her both stiff and seaworthy, while having a good turn of speed under power. The Moody 27 has very good head room for her size and has a well planned and practical layout with a vast amount of storage space.. There is seating for 6 at the saloon table.
The always popular and timeless Bill Dixon designed, bilge keel family cruiser - awaiting more adventure with a new owner.
The Moody 27 was built from 1981 to 1985 - so this is a late example, before the 28 was introduced. She benefits from being fitted with the 18hp Volvo 2002 series engine.
She is just about to have her annual haulout and engine service done.
New skin fitting in 2008. New shaft in 2010. New Crusader sails in 2011.
