Moody 36

The Moody 36 was designed by Bill Dixon in 1996 as a slightly more performance-orientated replacement for the 1990-96 Moody 35. As such she has a fairly shallow hull form and quite a low-profile coachroof, resulting in saloon headroom of 6 feet exactly. Headroom apart though, the interior is very spacious and well laid out, with lots of locker space and very nicely finished teak woodwork.

The design remained in production until 2000, and 118 were built.

Through the 1990s Moody were in direct competition with Westerly, and both companies were steadily raising the standard of the fitout and detailing. Like her predecessors the Moody 346 and 35, the deck line of the Moody 36 is easily mistaken for an aft-cockpit yacht if dodgers are fitted, making this a much more elegant yacht than the higher-decked Westerly equivalents.
