1989 Moody Eclipse 33






32.5 ft (10.06m)



The Moody Eclipse 33 is a highly desirable deck saloon cruising yacht offering an excellent balance of comfortable accommodation, good performance and all weather sailing capability. This is a well equipped Mk I (sought after due to the second internal wheel), twin keel version, very adaptable and easily sailed due to a fully furling rig. Her current owner has had the hull coppercoated, bow thruster and electric anchor windlass fitted. Viewing by appointment at our Suffolk Office (IP10 0LN) - 01473 659681
