1998 Moody 40, "Zac V" is both spacious and seaworthy. She is also very well equipped for safe and comfortable cruising with many recent upgrades, including sails and electronics. Her generous accommodation has a double cabin with ensuite toilet forward, a single passage cabin midships, a great saloon, wonderful Galley and, of course, the huge owner cabin aft. The owner's cabin has a centerline double berth with luxury sprung mattresses and an ensuite toilet with shower.
This really is a great family cruiser and offers a lot of boat for the money! - She can be viewed ashore here at Hamble Point Marina call to arrange a visit!
