Broker Remarks

The reason this Moody 30 stands out from the crowd is that she has been stripped back to the fiberglass shell, rebuilt and fully refurbished. The current owners circumstances necessitate a reluctant sale. If you want a cruising yacht with great performance in excellent condition and a greatly improved interior come and view her. She is well worth a visit.

Owners Remarks
One owner from new – sale necessitated by change of circumstances. ‘Shadowfax of Rohan’ is a superb example of this very pretty Angus Primrose designed Moody 30 with the characteristic flared bow. 2 years ago she was stripped down literally to a fibreglass shell and rebuilt from the inside out by a local shipwright with a passion for timber. The result is an interior with a warm classic feel, making her the ideal family cruiser. When she was relaunched about 12 months ago everything that could be changed had been changed including:

The engine, fuel tank, sail drive, skirt, 3 bladed propeller, new skin fittings and valves new chain plates and bulkheads, electric bilge pump, electric anchor winch with remote control and new anchor chain, new Lavac wc, stainless steel sinks with hot and cold water – supplied by calorifier with immersion heater, new forward hatch, aluminium framed, toughened glass windows. All electric wiring is new plus distribution board and 3 independent batteries with intelligent charging system, led lighting, instrumentation, deck and navigation lights. The interior is finished with new head linings, upholstery and matching curtains, new cockpit cushions and helmsman’s hardwood seat. The cabin floor has inlaid effect timber flooring.  Fitted with in-mast furling gear for mainsail and new (Ratsey) mainsail, running rigging and sprayhood.

Shadowfax lives up to the reputation of her namesake in Lord of the Rings and is a safe, speedy craft with excellent sailing qualities. She has many years and miles of comfortable sailing ahead of her with the right skipper.

With great headroom the accommodation offers a comfortable and spacious living space on-board.
