The Moody 31 is a well known and well proven family cruiser with a modern style interior layout. This good example has been well maintained and is only for sale as the owners are buying larger. They have used her for local cruising only and are now looking for something larger to go further afield with more room for the family. They have updated and renewed many aspects of the boat in their three years of ownership. The hull below the waterline was epoxied on purchase, the keel blasted and epoxied and re-bedded with new keel bolts. The anti fouling is VC17 low maintenance copper coating.
