Unveiling the Magnificent Moody DS45
The Moody brand was always at the forefront of design and engineering during the glory days of boatbuilding in Britain. They began producing quality workboats during the 1820’s in a yard in Swanick, just off the head of the River Hamble, on England’s glorious South coast.
They turned to yacht building during the 30’s, and the family business gradually evolved to the eye catching design and staunch engineering that we see today. One of Moody’s designers, Bill Dixon, has been creating cruising boats since 1981, but contrary to their wealthy heritage of tradition, the Moody DS45 is anything but. It is a leading figure in the future of yacht production and boasts aesthetics that aren't seen elsewhere in the market.
The Moody DS45 boasts spacious and decadent cockpit and sleeping quarters and an attention to design and décor detail like no other yacht of this type offers. It has successfully redefined what is possible to achieve with a 45-foot monohull and performs great under sail which coincides with its spectacular motoring performance. All in offers all of the standard requirements but with a fresh and vibrant twist.
