Flagships Gallery: Moody 54 DS

Because of the success of the Moody 45 and Moody 62 deck saloon series, we have now developed what we believe to be the best of two boats—the Moody 54 DS.
After 25 years of operation, cruising icon Herb Hilgenberg has decided to end his weather forecast and routing service, South Bound II Coastal, call sign VAX498. Since he started, Herb has become something of a structure in the East Coast and Caribbean cruising communities.
Approximately halfway between Nova Scotia and Portugal, you may find an unmanned five-foot boat, trekking across the Atlantic Ocean with a GPS on board. That boat, Crimson Tide, belongs to a seventh grade geography class in Morristown, New Jersey where students are tracking its voyage via GPS, hopefully all the way to Europe.

by SAIL Editors, Posted January 21, 2014
Step aboard the Xp 44 and the first thing you might find yourself wondering is: what’s not to love?

The MacGregor 26M is the latest version of Roger MacGregor's successful MacGregor 26X. This remarkable 26-footer can reportedly log speeds of over 21 knots under power, float in 12 inches of water, and sleep six. It has a galley and an enclosed head. Stability under sail comes from 300 pounds of permanent ballast, 1,150 pounds of easily removable water ballast in the hull, and a narrow
Jeanneau has made a splash breaking into the market for deck-saloon cruisers over the past few years, but it has also done a very good job of updating its bread-and-butter boats, as seen in the new Sun Odyssey 49.
