Broker Remarks

Owners Remarks:
This Moody S38 is one of the last boats built of this model, the performance that you get with this yacht is excellent, she is well balanced and has a good turn of speed, which makes her passage times very quick.
The current owners purchased her in 2012 and have mainly sailed her locally on coastal passages to Falmouth, Fowey, Salcombe and Dartmouth.
