This Moody S31 is in very good condition and has clearly been well maintained and loved by her Owners. With a truly surprising amount of space for a boat of her size, this S31 has a generous Owners cabin aft, another double cabin forward and the saloon provides an extra 2 berths. In addition she has a good sized galley with fridge, oven & hob, Chart Table & two sofas with drop leaf table between. Her saloon is finished in solid cherry woodwork with accents of gloss cherry to give a feeling of comfort & luxury throughout. On deck, she has a good size cockpit with all lines led aft to the cockpit to enable short handed sailing. This particular Moody S31 has a very high specification with many recent upgrades & improvements including new sails, new standing rigging, new electric windlass & a complete new sail drive unit & new keel bolts in 2017. Furthermore, in 2012 she had new plotter, radar, digital instruments & AIS fitted. She is powered by a Volvo MD2020, 19 HP diesel engine with sail drive seal replaced in 2016. This wonderful cruising yacht is a great example of the Moody S31 marque and is a real credit to her current owner. She also comes with an extensive documented service & maintenance history which is an asset to her new Owner.
The Moody S31 has all the space, styling & grace expected of this great Marque. Having been very well maintained & frequently updated, this boat certainly belies its age and feels & looks contemporary. In our opinion, this is probably one of the best examples of this much saught after Cruiser and is a must for viewing. She is currently lying Southampton. & available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.
