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.
