Broker's Comments

This is a very nice example of the ever popular Moody 30 that appears to have been very well maintained over the years. The present owner bought her in Scotland 3 years ago and has done quite a lot of work since. He lives on the boat so he fitted a new galley unit down the port side with a built in sink and a 12v fridge. This could easily be removed and converted back to the old bench seat which I believe is still there.
There is also a new electric heads with holding tank and pump out system.

The boat had a good survey in March 2020 which is available by request for inspection.
