Moody has developed a unique deck saloon sailing yacht with `one level living` between cockpit and saloon. This is a proven and well accepted concept for many offshore cruising sailors and ex-powerboat owners.

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.

The Moody 54 DS is ideal for all sailors who are looking for a comfortable boat without giving up sailing performance. Based on the wishes of this group, we have specified the design brief for Dixon Yacht design.
