Moody 62 DS

The Albatross seems to share the concept of the Moody 45DS proposing smaller boats at an interesting price.

The moddy 45DS:



Moody have a new bigger boat, the DS 62.

These boats, including the Albatross are a lot better sailboats than the old generation motor-sailors.

there are many sailboats, specially old ones with a much worse performance. They share with the motorboats a kind of resemblance in what regards the interior disposition and the transition between deck and cabin:



That had already been tried by the French from Alliaura that on the Feeling 55 proposed even with two engines as standard. the Feeling 55 was a mixture of catamaran, monohull and motorboat. As a concept it was interesting but the French seem not have appreciated and they went bankrupt.
