Re: Interesting Sailboats
Paulo, hi - great thread ! The Moody 41 has probably deserved to sell more hulls than it has; but the show / demo boats all have the optional high gloss timber interiors and oval portlights which must put off a few people.
The other thing which afflicts most twin wheeled yachts under 13 metres is that you can't lie down on the cockpit seats because they terminate at the aft end with a solid moulding for the steering pedastal. At least with a single wheel you can stretch out - even if your legs hang slightly over the end. This is an important feature for me - especially in warmer climates where on-deck sleeping is a happy option ! I tested the Moody 41 for this at the Southampton Boat Show and it failed miserably, which is a backward step on a yacht this size.
