The Angus Primrose designed Moody 33 hull served the builders well with the same hull forming the foundations for the Moody 33 MkI, Moody 33s and the final incarnation of the long running hull the Moody 333. A well proven design each incarnation proved to be a popular choice with cruising yachtsmen of the time, the hull offer reliable sailing performance while the volumous interior created a spacious modern living space below decks.
The Moody 333 was ground breaking design of the era. The first of the Moody yachts in this size range to offer a centre cockpit with double aft cabin accessible from the main living space. A considerable benefit over the earlier designs offering an aft cabin, accessible only from the cockpit and offering two single berths. Below decks the quality of interior finish was a step up from earlier models also with wide use of real wood veneered ply wood inplace of the commonly used timber effect plastic laminates used on earlier models.
LINDISFARNE is a much loved example of the Moody 333, with her current owners for almost 20 years she has proven a realiable and comfortable cruising yacht. During the current ownership she has spent 6 months or more ashore every year with her rig off and fully winterised. Now offered for sale due to her owners retirement from sailing she is offered for sale with a comprehensive inventory, in need of some modernisation. Afloat and in commission for the 2021 season she is available for viewing on her swinging mooring by prior appointment.
