Designed by Bill Dixon, the Moody 346 was a continued evolution of Moodys very successful 33/333/34 range of centre cockpit cruisers, the quality of the interior fitout steadily improving as the years went by. This 1986 example is for sale now as the owner wants a more bluewater boat for longer voyaging. She is very well equipped and well sorted, including having new standing rigging, furling gear and mainsail this year. She also has good electronics including radar, twin chartplotters, AIS, Navtex etc. A mooring in the Exe could be available with this yacht if required.

The Moody 346 was introduced in June 1986 as an update to the Moody 34, itself a modernised replacement for the old Angus Primrose designed Moody 33/333 range. These Dixon-designed models were considerably sleeker looking than the earlier Primrose designs, yet retained all the virtues of interior space and good sailing performance. The interior fit-out of the 34 and 346 was also to a significantly better standard than the earlier 33s, which used a lot of plastic laminates instead of wood.

The Moody 34 and 346 are virtually identical, except that the 346 has a transom bathing/boarding platform. The Moody 346 continued in production until mid-1990, proving one of the most successful designs for the company. Bilge keel versions remain a very sought after boat.

The Moody 346 has a slightly lower profile and more elegant deck line than the contemporary equivalent models from Westerly such as the Seahawk, Oceanquest and Oceandream - the Westerlys however having more interior headroom.

This is one of the rarer and very versatile twin-keel versions, that has covered quite a lot of miles in the present ownership, including a round-Britain trip.
