This Moody S31 has an good double aft cabin, and the inventory includes Eberspacher heating, radar etc. She is one of the later and more modern production designs for Moody by Bill Dixon, aiming at better sailing performance than many earlier Moody models, and with good accommodation within a modest overall length. We sold this yacht to her present owner in 2018, and she is now back on the market. She has had recent new canvaswork including a full "camper" cockpit enclosure and is currently ashore for antifouling and replacement of the Saildrive seal. She will then go back on her pontoon mooring.

Sailplan

While the Moody name traditionally indicated a fairly spacious but not especially fast cruiser, a few of their later designs were aimed at buyers wanting a bit more performance, and were clearly aimed at competing with the French designs becoming popular in the UK at the time. The Moody S31 was one of these later Moodys. With more draught than the previous Moody 31, as well as a longer waterline length and broader beam, she offered both more speed under sail and substantially more accommodation volume, including a large aft cabin.

The Moody S31 was designed by Bill Dixon, and was sold with either fin or bilge keels and masthead or fractional rig. This example is a fin keel masthead rig yacht. As with all the "production" Moodys, the yachts were built and fitted out for Moodys by Marine Projects in Plymouth, who now operate as Princess Yachts. 145 Moody S31s were built in total, compared to over 300 of the older, smaller Moody 31s Mk I and II.

'Yachting Monthly' used boat tested the Moody S31 in 2012 and wrote "....the S31 has a sense of space that belies her 31 ft length" and "....sails well and exudes competence ...... all in all a lovely airy, able boat".
