About this Moody 41 Lift Keel

This Moody 41 is a rare bird - one of only six boats built with the lift keel option. The Moody 41 is a superb offshore cruiser, and the lift keel makes her capable of both blue water and inland waterway cruising - a sought-after combination. Her three cabin layout is ideal for family cruising, and a fairly new and modern Volvo D2-55 engine is a big plus. She features a huge spec for serious cruising, and really is a heck of a lot of boat for the money.
