Moody 333

Brief Notes


Marine Projects Ltd.

The Moody 333 was the first Moody in this size range to feature an "aft double cabin" layout. Based on the well-tried and solidly built Moody 33 hull, the 333 offers an excellent family cruiser.

Moody 333

Designed by Angus Primrose, the Moody 333 was the final version of the long-running Moody range based on the same 33 ft hull moulding. The Moody 333, built from around 1981 to 1983, differs from the earlier Mk I and Mk II 33s primarily in having an aft cabin accessible from the saloon, with a proper double berth in place of the two singles on the 33s.

The 333 also features much better quality interior finishing than the previous 33 models, with real wood veneers in place of the very practical but less attractive timber-effect laminates used in most 33s. This, plus the convenience of the walkthrough to the aft cabin, means that Moody 333s generally sell for considerably more than similarly aged and sized 33s

Despite their excellent accommodation, the Moody 33 and 333s sail very well, one of the earlier Moody 33s having been taken straight off the production line and sailed to 4th place in the Azores and Back Race in 1975. Hulls were moulded to Lloyds construction standards, by Marine Projects Ltd., and finished by Moodys.

As was normal for all Moodys of this era, hot water was provided by an on--demand gas water heater rather than the current method of engine calorifier and shorepower immersion heater

The interior 'walk-through' passage to the aft cabin (the main distinguihing feature from the earlier Moody 33s) is not full standing headroom. The aft cabin has a double berth, a single seat, and very good stowage
