Broker's comments

Through the years the Moody 38S is appreciated for her timeless modern design as most charming lady at sea. This one is in more than acceptable used condition, benefits low engine hours and therefore indicates low general usage. Well maintained and beautiful new Flexi teak in the cockpit. She comes with a super neat interior, good layout and general condition. Almost all equipment and instruments work well, but, if you fancy the latest gear, consider partly replacement for electronics. As a result this Moody is attractively priced, but no mistakes, in present condition you can sail tomorrow.
