Sailing BoatsCruisersMoodyModel 29
The Moody 29 is a deservedly popular family cruising yacht, with more modern lines than the earlier Moody 30, or Westerly Konsort alternatives. They combine safe, comfortable cruising performance with spacious accommodation, and so are well suited to families, short-handed sailors, or even longer distance cruisers. Bargoose is a desirable fin keel version for improved performance, and has a good inventory including hot water, recent upholstery, and comprehensive navigation equipment.
