Moody Yachts for Sale


The Moody name is synonymous with performance cruising - and deservedly so. Every boat in the Moody fleet has been compromisingly designed to sail superbly across the full range of conditions.

Performance means being able to sail into challenging seas with unshakable confidence in the seaworthiness and stability of a vessel. It means the freedom to enjoy blue water cruising with as few as two people - even on our larger boats. It means all the space and facilities to make extended periods at sea truly comfortable. It also means boats which are solid investments as well as a lasting pleasure. These are the qualities that have earned Moody International recognition as one of the world's finest names in sailing.

This, one owner from new, Moody 58 Custom Sloop 'Ardent Spirit' was designed by Bill Dixon and built in 1986 by A.H. Moody & Sons at their yard in Bursledon, England as the first of a series. Four were built.

Under the name 'Kindred Spirit' she was sailed across the Atlantic for the Annapolis and Ft. Lauderdale Boat Shows in the fall of 1986. She was then sailed back to England for the 1987 London Boat Show and received excellent reviews in yachting magazines on both sides of the Atlantic.

She was purchased from Moody by Dr. and Mrs Beiser in January 1988 who renamed her 'Ardent Spirit' and a few years later had her hull color changed from white to black.

A great many modifications were carried out at Moody's yard -- for instance, electric winches, Maxprop feathering propeller, watermaker, radar, SSB radiotelephone, and a new mainsail with full-length battens and lazy jacks were all added, the lifelines and pulpits were raised, the bow fitting was rebuilt to take a larger anchor and the refrigeration system was improved.

Later additions include a better generator and watermaker, supplementary AC refrigeration compressor, electric jib furler and manual forestaysail furler, new opening portlights at the forward end of the saloon, a lazy bag for the mainsail, and a large fiberglass-bottom inflatable dinghy that stows in chocks on the foredeck and is raised and lowered with an electric winch.

More recently new North Sails, electric toilets and a bow thruster were installed.

'Ardent Spirit' has never raced or chartered, normally cruised by owners alone.

Brokers Comments

Unlike most modern yachts which are designed for boat shows rather than sailing, ARDENT SPIRIT has a build standard, specification and sea keeping qualities which make her better than more recent boats.

Having previously owned 6 boats before purchasing ARDENT SPIRIT which they have now owned for 27 years Dr. Beiser (a renowned marine author and journalist) and Mrs Beiser finally found the perfect yacht and with their extensive knowledge and ability have maintained her to the highest standards.
