Manufacturer Info



  A former giant of the British sailboat building industry, the Moody name has been synonymous with quality yachts for many generations. In the very early 1970s the family run yard engaged Angus Primrose to design a 33ft comfortable cruising yacht, which would be built by Marine projects, builder of Princess motor yachts. The new boat was a resounding success and spawned a growing range of craft with sizes spanning from 27-64ft, that followed the same premise of offering a quality, solid and comfortable cruiser. From the early 1980s onwards, the range was designed by Bill Dixon, with the boats generally becoming larger, more luxurious and faster. However by the 2000s volumes were falling and in 2007 the company was sold to Hanse Group, which commissioned Dixon to design a range of three bang up-to-the-minute deck saloon yachts from 45 to 62 feet, plus more traditionally styled 41ft and 45ft sloops.

Boat Description

The Moody Classic 41 combines the best of modern design and engineering with the traditional values associated with Moody Yachts. She represents the spirit of a golden age of yachting, whilst being completely up to date in terms of performance and comfort. The warm and elegant interior, created using rich mahogany veneers and solid mahogany trims, inspires a feeling of timelessness and well-being. The Moody design and build team represents many years of experience, both in the workshop and on the water. It clearly shows our attention to the smallest detail. Carefully selected high quality materials ensure that the Moody Classic 41 will give pleasure for many years to come. In the Moody Classic 41, designers Bill Dixon and Watervision have created a fast and comfortable cruising yacht, equally suitable for marina life, short hops along the coast or for longer offshore passages. The twin wheel steering position provides excellent visibility and security. The composite performance keel produces a high level of stiffness and upwind speed. Well-cut sails are standard and drive this yacht effortlessly.
