Sea Yachting Magazine Moody yachts have long enjoyed a reputation for quality and now the Moody Deck Saloons add innovation, harmoniously combining traditional values and modern design. The Moody "one level living" concept takes a unique approach to modern yacht design and is common to both the DS 45 and the DS 62. The Moody Deck Saloons are designed to make living aboard and sailing a pleasure. Simply open the sliding doors from the spacious cockpit and you access the sumptuous living area on the same level, bathed with natural light. The large cockpit contains an excellent table while the open deck aft is ideal for spending time with family and friends. The self-tacking jib and manageable rig, supported by powerful winches, ensures easy and safe handling for a small crew. The yacht can be simply maneuvered from the helm station, with all sails easily adjustable from the helmsman's position. The yachts feature a solid continuous bulwark and guardrail, which offers all-round security.
The large cockpit is protected by a sliding bimini and is an ideal social area in all weather conditions. When the swimming platform is open, access to the sea is just two steps away. The Moody's are true ocean-cruising yachts, offering safe and comfortable blue water sailing and their design incorporates a high degree of seaworthiness. Their features include substantial refrigeration, large water and diesel capacities, coach roof windows made of strong security glass and a solid watertight bulkhead in the bow. Attention is paid to every detail, including the spacious storage compartments, pop-up TV, and ergonomic fiddles and handrails. Even with a party underway outside, there is still an opportunity to enjoy peace and quiet in the deck saloon which also houses the navigator's seat and chart table, with ample space for extensive passage planning. The handcrafted interior is crafted to a high standard with a choice in solid timbers on offer. A variety of cabin combinations are available below the living deck area that allowS substantial owner customisation.
