This is a really lovely example of these sought after deck saloon yachts, with only 3 owners from new.
The current owners have cherished her since 2002 and it was a pleasure listing such a delightful yacht.
She was epoxied around 2000 and she has been regularly serviced and maintained by the current owners and benefits from a Turbo charged engine and a good Survey in 2016 when the Marine Surveyor concluded she was a "good example of this popular sought after yacht"
A Yachting Monthly Review in 2016 stated of the Moody Eclipse the following:
"The Moody Eclipse 33 was and still is highly sought-after. Duncan Kent looks at one to see why.
Take a more studied look at her hull shape – waterline, stem entry, narrow shoulders and so on – and you begin to wonder. Her hull has the lines of a reasonably modern yacht, although a tad beamier than normal for her era.
Knowing she had bilge keels also made me doubt her performance before we even left the quay, so it was a pleasant surprise to find she sailed considerably better than I had anticipated. We set out in a 10-12 knot south-westerly breeze and a flattish sea. We unfurled full sail in minutes and were soon comfortably reaching over Christchurch’s notorious bar, making a leisurely 5-knots out to sea. She tacked through 88°-90° swiftly, as we returned to the harbour entrance and hove to impressively.
The wind (and rain) increased through the day and, had I not been putting her through her paces I might well have stayed at the inside helm station, where the view forward is good until heavily heeled to port. Both wheels gave a light but stiff feel, due to the extra linkages, although she showed no signs of weather helm – even when a 24-knot gust tried to round her up.
Below decks, she offers a surprising amount of comfortable living space. The raised saloon is a real bonus, giving you a fantastic all-round view of the anchorage as well as providing enough seating for four to dine in comfort or six for cosy drinks. The large deckhouse windows also make the entire saloon, galley and navigation areas bright and cheery, whatever the weather.
She also has berths for six, comprising a big vee-berth forward, a surprisingly roomy double aft and a pull-out double in the saloon if you really want to pack them in. Her galley is also well-equipped with stowage and worksurface aplenty. I’ve also seen a smaller heads compartment in a 40ft boat!"
This must be one of the best on the market, and if you are looking for a Quality Deck Saloon Yacht, this one needs to be on your list, as she will not be for sale for long.
