Introduced in 1972 the Angus Primrose designed Moody 33 was the first model by the highly respected British builder aimed at the mass production GRP yacht market. The centre cockpit design was a relative rarity at the time of the launch of the design. The completely separate aft cabin proving a popular addition.

MINIMUS is a much loved and exceptionally well cared for example of the class. In the current ownership for just over a decade she has proved to be an ideal family cruising yacht. She benefits from having been extensively re-fitted at the time of the owner's purchase in 2008; relaunching in 2013, works including:

Professionally two-pack painted topsides. (2013)

Re-painting of decks.

Renovation and re-finishing of all internal woodwork.

Replacement headlining forward.

Replacement of upholstery forward.

New standing rigging. (2013)

The best example of the class we have had the pleasure of being aboard in recent years MINIMUS is certainly worth travelling to view if you are considering purchasing a classic Moody.
