Broker's Comments


This boat is berthed at one of the most desireable and fully serviced private marinas in the heart of Plymouth.
Furthermore, the owner has confirmed that following acceptance of an agreeable offer, he would be prepared to transfer this berth over to the new owner with up to a "50% DISCOUNT" for 12 month starting from the 1st April 2024.

So don't miss out on this great package of the highly sought Moody S31 along with a fantastic, heavily discounted mooring as well!

These yachts are very popular cruisers, the successor to the Moody 31, providing better performance sailing along with modern lines and vastly spacious cabins and cockpit. 

She offers two large cabins - a forward V-berth with infill and a great size aft cabin. The aft cabin is where you will find amazingly good access to the engine and a lovely airy opening hatch.

You can see from her bright and well maintained interior this vessel has been much loved and well cared for not just by the current owners but also the past owner.

She is truly a very fine example of this much sought after classic Moody S31 yacht and I would advise an early viewing.

Please note: There is an inflatable dinghy tender and outboard available with this boat via separate negotiation.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Moody S31 has been personally photographed and viewed by Jason Currie-Smith of Boatshed Plymouth. Click here for contact details.

The owner is not sure, but there is published data available on the internet which gives this boat a hull speed of 6.9kts. Hope that helps?
