Moody 45 DS
What happens when one of Britains oldest and most conservative brands meets one of Germanys most unorthodox boatbuilders? The Moody 45, thats what. Longtime Moody designer Bill Dixon must have had a ball with this boat, built at the Hanse factory in Germany. Its designed with most of the accommodation at deck level, just leaving heads and sleeping cabins down below. The saloon and galley can be screened off from the elements, but al fresco dining and sailing are this boats strong points. LOA 45ft, LWL 42 ft. 4 in., beam 14ft 11in, draft 6ft 3in, displacement 29,982 lbs., sail area 1054.8 ft., design Bill Dixon, builder Hanse Yachts. Moody USA: 410 626 1493.
