This Moody 31 is a desirable twin keel version, ideal for coastal cruising where taking the ground or exploring shallower waters is required. 'Valhalla' is presented in very good condition for her age, has been well maintained, and has a very good inventory including diesel heating, fridge, hot water, Darglow feathering propeller, self-tailing sheet winches, bathing platform, and a new B&G chartplotter with AIS in 2021. Early viewing is highly recommended as we expect demand to be very high!
