Don't know if this is relevant to you but we looked at a Moody 43 on the Gold Coast last week - built in 1990 - and decided we didn't like the thought that the keel bolts had rusted and needed replacing and the difficulties of access to the motor. Internal layout was terrific but lots of tired bits - mirrors, doorknobs, laminex, vinyl lifting around the hatches. And this was a boat that had been looked after. Also the owners had had to replace lots of things - the decking for one. We were left thinking maybe Moody are a little light on durability?? I gues 20 years is a long time though. Maybe this is only an issue if you are looking at older models.
