Sailing BoatsCruisersMoodyModel S31
The Bill Dixon designed Moody S31 is a well built family cruising boat. This one is the twin bilge keel version with wheel steering which is ideal for family cruising. She has been in her present ownership for some 20 years (only two owners from new and supplied initially by us) and they are now retiring from sailing - therefore there is a massive inventory allowing a purchaser to step on board and go cruising. Do not miss this opportunity. Viewing by appointment through our Suffolk Office - - Phone number removed -
