The smallest of the popular Bill Dixon designed Moody's. The Moody 28 was in production between 1983 and late 1987. A smaller version of the very popular 31. She offers the same layout with 6 berths over two cabins. Including the good sized double aft. Built by Marine Projects to the same standards as her larger sisters. They have proved to be robust reliable cruising yachts.
A well-presented example of the class ANDIAMO has been professionally maintained, with an extensive inventory. Highlights of which include:
Blown air diesel fired heating.

Full cockpit tent
Pressurised hot & cold water.
Raymarine instrumentation.

Much loved and regularly used in the current ownership. For sale only due to stretching children she would make a great cruiser for a young family or a single handed sailor.
Lying in Lossiemouth, viewing is strictly by prior appointment.

As would be expected of a highly regarded production boat builder such as Moody the quality of build below decks is excellent.

Sole boards are of the traditional teak and koto type again finished in a satin varnish while the upholstery is a light grey patterned fabric.
