Moody 37 and 376

Brief details

Builder

Moody Yachts/Marine Projects

The Moody 37 is a solid cruising yacht with a large en-suite aft cabin, and a second double forward with semi-en-suite forward heads. As these boats are big and comfortable enough for liveaboard or "holiday cottage" use, many seem to have migrated from the UK to Spain and the Mediterranean, where cheaper prices tend to prevail. The Moody 376 is essentially the same boat with a stern modified to provide a bathing platform.

Moody 37 sailplan

The Moody 37 was designed by Bill Dixon of Angus Primrose Ltd., and introduced in 1985. In 1987 the design was modified slightly to add a small sugarscoop on the transom, and renamed the Moody 376, which remained in production until 1991. About 300 of these 37/376 models were built. As can be expected the later-built Moody 376 models usually command higher prices than the earlier 37s.

The Moody 37 is a substantial cruising yacht with accommodation laid out to be very comfortable for two couples, although there are up to eight berths if necessary. The centre cockpit is deep and well protected, with all sail controls led aft.

Both fin keel and bilge keel versions were produced: but whilst on the smaller Moodys bilge-keelers were quite common by the time you get to the 37-footers ( large yachts in their day) owners buying new generally had the money to afford deep water marina berths, so fin keelers appear to be more common on the market.
