New standing rigging 2012

New Rayamrine Navigation Equipment

This 1993 Moody 35 Center Cockpit is yet another great design from Bill Dixon, with all the normal extras you expect in this family cruising boat. ‘Spendide 1’ benefits from a recent electrical upgrade which included; Raymarine Colour HD Radar, AIS, Plotters with Navionics Platinum charts, forward facing sonar...

Currently located in the Algarve (near Faro), fully maintained and equipped ready to sail away into the sun.

This Moody 35 is in ready to go sailing condition and would very much suit a couple of small family with a Mediterranean or Atlantic trip in mind. Registered in the UK under the small ships register, Splendide is an exceptional example of this Moody classic.

She comes complete with an extensive up to date inventory worth £10,000s and has been annually maintained and updated. Splendide has been epoxy coated from new and has well above average hull and gelcoat condition for her age. The hull has been professionally coated with Coppercoat. 

Splendide has been based in the Algarve for just short of five years and has been fully covered during winter on land storage and during the height of the summer.

The boat is currently located in the Algarve which is a superb 365 day per year sailing area with lovely marinas and anchorages spanning Portugal and Spain. It is a perfect location to start a Mediterranean cruise.

Owner's comments:

Splendide 1 was constructed in 1993 by Marine Projects Plymouth. She was epoxy coated from new and well appointed both above and below deck. She was owned by a dutch gentleman (still in contact) until sold to an owner in Chatham UK in 2005. She sat in the marina and yard for many years without being sailed.

While in excellent condition inside and out sailing systems suffered from lack of use. I purchased Splendide in September 2011 and had all sailing, mechanical and safety features fully renewed and updated. Since 2011 she has been regularly maintained and kept in tip top condition. So much so I doubt you will find a better Moody 35 on the market.


Inside Splendide is fully fitted in teak with blue upholstery all in great condition.

Cabins are blue carpeted on top of wood decking.

The galley is well-equipped and features a clean 3 ring hob and oven. There is a full domestic inventory.

Raymarine electronics at the helm are repeated at the chart table and are fully networked.

The sleeping accommodation features a large double at the stern with ensuite heads and a double V berth at the bow.

There is a hot and cold pressurised water system heated by an immersion and the engine.

All systems have been fully serviced and are in working order,
