Moody is one of the oldest yacht builders who has set class and quality standards in craftsmanship and boat-building since the year 1827. John Moody is the founding father of Moody, an English brand of sailing yachts which commenced and progressed in Swanwick on the banks of the River Hamble, UK. Moody initially dealt with the repair, service, and overhaul of fishing boats and in the year 1880, started manufacturing small dinghies under the stewardship of John Moody’s grandson Alexander Herbert Moody. 

Their first sailing yachts in timber construction were created and built in the year 1935 and by 1965 Moody began the construction of fibreglass sailing yachts which soon became famous for their comfortable, safe, homely and long-distance aptness.

Moody soon progressed into one of the leading European producers of sailing yachts. In the year 1973, Moody had to join forces with David King from Marine Projects due to the world oil crisis and the collaboration continued till 2003. Later in the year 2005, the Swanwick yard was sold to Premier Marinas Ltd by the Moody family. Since 2007 the German manufacturer Hanse Yachts AG is the owner of the Moody brand name and constructs newly developed Moody sailing yachts. 

Alexander urged and demanded that only the boats 'of the top quality' be permitted to leave his shipyard. He was true to his word with his very first sailing yacht named - the ‘Vindilis’, which was designed by T. Harrison Butler. The Moody family guaranteed that their shipyard would employ the most proficient craftsmanship and the use only excellent materials for their highly exclusive yachts. True to their promise, the cruising sailors praised their long-distance sailing performance and a greater level of comfort. 

Moody had naval architects including Laurent Giles, Angus Primrose and Bill Dixon on board and because of these, the shipyard grew into a leading European yacht manufacturer. Moody occupies an exclusive platform in the boatbuilding world today, devoting itself to cultivating the best in the deck saloon principle and establishing each production on the values of Alexander Moody.

The Range

Moody produces two lines of sailing yachts: 

Moody Decksaloon

The Moody Decksaloon range offers a totally unique design. When originally launched onto the market, the design by Bill Dixon caused quite a stir because it differed so greatly from traditional sailing yachts. The one level living concept is an innovative approach to yacht design, with living area and spacious cockpit all on the same level and entry through sliding doors.

The distinctive structure, with large windows and a 360 degree view, combines cutting-edge design with practicality to create a unique and comfortable boating experience.

The Decksaloon range includes the DS45 and DS55, both of which equally focus on luxurious and comfortable living as well as safety and performance.

Maneuverability of the yacht has been made easy, with all sails easily adjustable from the helmsman's position. The DS45 feels reassuringly safe and secure thanks to the solid bulwark and guardrail. The cockpit is protected by a sliding bimini and serves as a perfect social area in all weather conditions. The swimming platform opens out to provide instant access to the sea.

Decksaloon 54 - The DS54 offers top quality manufacturing in all of its elements, with each and every detail meeting the highest standards. The result is a boat which makes cruising as comfortable as it can possibly be. The DS45 provides an extra-high bulwark, holders on the saloon roof, and a fixed railing, giving a feeling of security even if the weather gets rough, making her perfect for little boaters such as children and animals.

This range offers an overall more traditional look compared to the Decksaloon range both in its lines and structures. Carefully selected materials are hand-crafted to create each new Moody, while safety and seaworthiness are of key importance to the entire brand ethos.

AftCockpit 41 - The 41 offers a warm and sophisticated interior, inspiring a feeling of timeless elegance. There is generous seating for dinner around a beautiful star-patterned table, while the navigation station is both comfortable and practical.
