This 1989 Moody 31 MKII ‘May Breeze’ is an extremely well maintained, turnkey example of this classic family cruiser, currently afloat in Salcombe. This is the bilge keel version which offers comfortable accommodation, good all-round performance, sugar scoop transom and the much sought-after factory fitted Whitlock wheel steering. Her excellent handling and good sail ratio mean she is efficient and handles well and has been rigged by the current owner for single handed sailing with all lines led back to the cockpit. This particular boat benefits from a good inventory and overall condition. She has been in her current ownership for 10 years and has been thoughtfully upgraded plus very well maintained and is ready to sail away today with nothing to do or worry about. Full survey from 2014 available on request.
