high quality yacht brands?
Moody, like a lot of top high quality boat manufacturers could not cope with the prices of big production sailboats manufacturers and stopped making small sailing boats.
They have stopped making the 38 and the 42 in 2003 and are now focused in making big luxury oceangoing boats.
Smaller second hand boats have a good value in the market, are well built and are good oceangoing boats. They are also adapted to live aboard.
They are not fast boats, but all is relative (If you compare them with an Island Packet, they are fast).
I particularly like the recent production of the 38. Nice interior in a good looking boat.
