Fantastically well-equipped example of the very popular Bill Dixon designed Moody 47 centre cockpit blue water cruising yacht. Offering the ideal combination of performance, comfort and capability. MAXIMILIAN is a yacht very well-known to us here at Grabau International.
FURTHER BROKER’S COMMENTS:
Built as one of the highest specified Moody 47’s and with the benefit of very high quality interior teak joinery, MAXIMILIAN has always been a very special yacht.
Very well known to us here at Grabau International, she was sold by our company MD from her first owner and then through all her subsequent ownerships through to her present fourth ownership. In her first three ownerships, MAXIMILIAN was based in and around the Solent covering very few miles and hours on her systems. Upon sale to her current owners in 2010, she has just 560hrs on her Yanmar 78hp engine.
In her present ownership, MAXMILIAN has enjoyed the cruising she was built for, having spent her seasons cruising around the Mediterranean in total comfort and safety. Boasting one of the biggest specifications we have ever seen on a Moody 47, her highlights include:-
- 3-cabin, 2-head layout with fantastic owner’s cabin aft and VIP cabins forward.
- 2.06m draft keel for great windward performance
- Full-time cutter rig with furling yankee and self-tacking staysail
- Inmast furling mainsail
- Furling cruising chute
- Upgraded electric winch package
- White hull topsides (more colour-stable than dark blue)
- Teak decks
- Davits with tender and outboard
- Wind generator and solar panels
- Solid spray-screen plus large bimini
- Eberspacher hot-water cabin heating system
- Washing machine
- Fridge and freezers
- LCD TV
- Raymarine navigation instruments with 3x radar/chart plotter displays
- SSB with insulated backstay
Continually updated and refined by her current owners, MAXIMILIAN is now offered for sale at a very competitive price as her owners now wish to move on to new projects. MAXIMILIAN is UK VAT-paid and Part 1 British Registered.
Maximilian was designed by Bill Dixon and built in Plymouth, UK for Moody Yachts International Ltd. She was commissioned in late 2002 and is one of the highest specification 47's built which includes many extras such as full air conditioning, generator, water maker and washing machine. She has been lovingly maintained and upgraded by her present owners making her the perfect 'go anywhere' cruising yacht. Currently based in Greece, Max has spent 2017 cruising the beautiful Peloponnese and Ionian islands.
Opting for a lifestyle change in 2010 we found Maximilian and have loved cruising aboard for the last seven years as we have sailed from the UK to Turkey. We have spent our years exploring stunning cruising grounds, from the bracing Atlantic to the sun kissed Mediterranean.
With head turning lines we have enjoyed compliments wherever we have been whilst Max has given us a comfortable and elegant lifestyle on board. Much loved and meticulously maintained Max has been our safe haven for this adventure.
From sailing to new countries, tasting different cultures, meeting the locals and making international cruising friends, anchoring in secluded bays to mooring on town quays we have enjoyed all that the cruising life has offered. However, the time has come for Max to look for new owners with an adventurous spirit and a love of life to continue this journey.
Like its sisters, the 54 and the 64, the Moody 47 is capable of very fast passage times thanks to its long waterline and efficient hull shape. Handling this yacht is very easy and well within the capabilities of a couple sailing on their own. All Moodys are specified with a high level of equipment as standard to ensure that shorthanded sailing presents no problems and the 47 has a furling main and genoa. The long, and very comfortable cockpit is protected by a stainless steel framed windscreen or owners can opt for a GRP dog house which can be fitted with a complete cockpit tent
