In her present ownership since 2009 this 1986 centre cockpit Moody 47 has completed a cruise from the South Coast to the Faroes and Iceland in 2015. She was then laid up for a year at Portland before again cruising Ireland and Scotland in 2017. She is now ashore in NW Scotland. She has had a fully reconditioned engine fitted in 2015, and has good sails and standing rigging. With a large double aft cabin and two heads, plus a spacious saloon, she is a serious cruiser at an attractive price.

Sailplan

The Moody 47 was designed by Bill Dixon in 1981/82, and was moulded and fitted out by Moodys themselves at Southampton, although they had already started subcontracting the build and fit-out of a number of smaller yacht designs to Marine Projects Ltd. at Plymouth.

The hull design remained in production till 1989, although various internal layout changes were made, as well as alterations to the transom and a slight increase in overall length: these variants were called the Moody 471 and Moody Culverneer. In total 31 of these Moody 47/471/Culverneers were built between 1982 and 1989. Essentially the same hulls were then used for the Moody Marksman 47 and 50 designs, of which a further six were built by Moodys from 1988 to 1991.

This yacht for sale has in-mast mainsail reefing, which is increasingly seen as the optimum for ease of handling in larger yachts.

Accommodation plan

is close to correct except that the berths in the forecabin are slightly different.

Engine

The propulsion engine is a four-cylinder Thornycroft T150 rated at 66 bhp: this is a simple all-mechanical diesel based on the 2.5 litre Landrover engine, also used in many London taxis. This engine was fitted in early 2015 as a fully reconditioned unit and has run 400 hours since. These are very long-lived engines for which spares are still readily available. Aft and above of the main engine is mounted a Mase 5Kw diesel generator powered by a Ruggerini single-cylinder diesel.

This yacht is in her second ownership from new: having been bought by her present owner in 2009 she has had extensive renewals of equipment, and now offers a very well-equipped boat for long-distance passage-making. Her cruise to the Faroes and Iceland was made with a crew of three.
