Broker Remarks

Moody S31 for sale. A stunning example of this popular performance cruiser by Moody.  MARI was built in 1994 but feels like a new boat below and she is a credit to her owners.  The Moody S31 is a great cruising yacht for a family or two couples with spacious accommodation for a 31 footer as it includes a large aft cabin.  Tiller steering makes her balanced, manoeuvrable and responsive. The standing rigging was replaced in 2015 as was the DoNut. Fully documented list of repairs, servicing and many additions since purchase by the current owner in July 2014, including windows replacement and teak grating to cockpit sole. Powered by a Volvo MD 2020 18 hp engine that has been regularly serviced and winterised by the main agents.
