Moody 30

Introduced in 1975, and remaining in production for four years, with about 150 built, the Moody 30 has the same distinctive high-volume hull style, with very flared bows, of all the Angus Primrose designed Moodys from 27 ft up to 40 ft.

Unlike many of the larger versions, however, she does not have the large sunken anchor well in the foredeck. As with all smaller production Moodys of this era, the interior 'woodwork' is mostly wood-effect plastic laminate, with real teak trim.

Moody 30

The saloon of the Moody 30 has a dinette converting to a a double berth, and a single settee berth opposite. Add in a quarterberth under the slide-down chart table, and a vee-double in the forecabin, and you have six berths in 30 feet.

The heads is larger than usual on a 30 foot yacht, with large hanging lockers opposite.

The Volvo MD11C engine and Saildrive is under the fore part of the cockpit, a large lifting hatch in the cockpit sole giving very good access. For major work the steering pedestal and aft section of the sole can also be removed. Most Moody 30s were wheel-steered, though tiller steering was available as a cheaper option from the factory.
