Moody 29

 

Built from 1980 to 1983, the Moody 29 was very much a smaller version of the earlier and very successful Moody 30, itself a shrunk Moody 33. The looks make her unmistakably one of the Primrose designs for Moody, sharing the trademark flared bow and dark blue topside stripe, which helps to disguise the high freeboard. She was designed as a six to seven berth boat, the seventh being achieved by converting one side of the saloon to a double, and regarding the aft berth as another double.

 

This was probably Angus Primrose's last production yacht design, before he tragically died at sea off the coast of the USA, shortly after completing the 1980 OSTAR singlehanded transatlantic race

Moody 29

The saloon has headroom varying from 72" to 73". There are 75" long settee berths either side, with leecloths, one of which is convertible to a double. Forward there is the large heads compartment, and vee-berths (75" along centrelines) in the forecabin. Aft of the chart table is a large quarterberth, 75" deep, which Moodys described as a double, although at only about 45" wide at the outer end it is a very cosy double!

The saloon table folds away and stows against the forward bulkhead, opening out the space tremendously when it is folded. The chequered pattern upholstery seen here is the original material as supplied by Moodys.

The Moody 29 was usually fitted with a Bukh diesel. These are generally long-lived engines, being traditional low-revving marine diesels. The engine drives via a conventional sternshaft with a moulded shaft log. Engine and gearbox access is excellent, as the cockpit has removable panels in the sole.
