This Moody 31
MKII, ‘Inspiration’, is an extremely, well maintained
example of this classic family cruiser.
This is the fin keel version of the popular type of yacht and offers
comfortable accommodation, good all-round performance, sugar scoop and tiller
steering. In combination with the fin keel her good sail ratio means she is
efficient and handles well under sail, even single handed with all lines fed
back to the cockpit.
This particular boat benefits from a good
inventory and overall condition. She has been very well maintained and
updated by the current owner and is ready to sail away today.
