Moody 33 MkII - 1981
A desirable MK II version of the original Angus Primrose Moody 33, with its offset heads compartment to avoid the need to walk through the heads to access the forward cabin and main saloon seating to both sides of the cabin together with an 'L'-shaped galley that is more favourably located and designed, in the port aft corner of the main cabin alongside the companionway, while to starboard an aft-facing chart table was also made possible.
Same relatively shoal draft (just 4'5") as the original boats and a performance that amazed the detractors by proving the Moody 33 to be a remarkably good performer on all points of the wind compared to other cruising boats of the day.
This example has a replacement Beta Marine 30hp, indirectly cooled diesel fitted in around 2015 with only 231 hours run from new, it has been epoxy coated beneath the waterline; standing rigging replaced and fresh cabin cushions fitted only 3 years ago - in fact these cushions are like new as they have barely been sat upon as a result of the successive 'lockdowns'!
