ALL VIEWINGS ARE CURRENTLY STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY The Moody 31 MKII has become a classic family cruising yacht thanks to their comfortable accommodation, good all-round performance and sugar scoop stern. 'Dayspring' is a tiller steered, twin keel example and has been in her current ownership from new. She is generally in good condition, but she is still quite original and will therefore require some updating and modernising by her new owner. Built in 1991, she must be one of the last MkII's produced. Viewing by appointment only through our Essex Office - Click here to reveal phone number -
