Broker's Comments

The Moody S31 is a very popular cruiser. She has modern lines and provides a lot of space in the cockpit outside and the accommodation inside for her length. This particular boat appears to be well maintained and cared for. Her upholstery and headlinings look good and she has just benefited from new hose in the heads :) She is currently stored ashore for the winter with her sails and sprayhood off.
