The Moody 36 is a well built and well proven centre cockpit cruiser. Beautifully fitted out with teak joinery, this was the last (and best) generation of the smaller designs when Moodys were at the top of their game. A substantial cruising boat offering a practical comfortable layout with two double sleeping cabins separate from the main accommodation. This good example has been well maintained and is only for sale as the owner is retiring from sailing.
