Moody 28

Built from late 1985 to mid 1987, in both fin keel and bilge keel versions, the Moody 28 was very much a smaller version of the very successful Moody 31 - in fact she has as many berths and cabins, just slightly smaller, and is hence cheaper to maintain and berth. Despite the short production run (the yachts sold for not that much less than a Moody 31), the Moody 28 was well liked by both private owners and charter companies.
