Whether you are planning to sail around the world or want it comfortably in the archipelago, an exclusive yacht Moody DS 45 is the perfect boat. It does not matter whether it is cold or hot, sun, rain or snow, you always sail as comfortably in a Moody DS 45. Don’t let the weather set the limits!
The hull is designed for sailing and gives a great sailing feeling in all weather conditions.
Moody Yachts was built in Swanwick, England, on the river Hamble from the mid-1700 ‘s to the early 21st century and Bill Dixon has designed Moody’s boats since 1981. Today there is nothing traditional about Moody DS45. It represents a radical step into the future from this well-established builder, now owned by German Hanse Yachts.
The cockpit is huge, and as on a catamaran the cockpit has a fully integrated “roof” equipped with a retractable Canvas center section to increase the visibility of the sails (or just improve the flight) while sailing. The wide side decks are protected by rugged, almost knee-high bulwarks topped with stainless steel railing. There are double steering pods with wide back seats, significant storage compartments and long, deep and comfortable seats.
On the cross, the boat is well balanced and sails almost like in a wide groove, with speeds of 6-knots. The self-striking jiben can be thanked for a simple singlehanded sailing many catamarans like Moody have limited visibility forward from cockpits ‘ control stations as the cabin is in the same plane as the cockpit, but they also generally have their control stations so high up that you get A good view forward. Having said that, during an offshore sailing I would most likely spend much of my time at the control station inside, which has excellent visibility forward.
Kudos to Bill Dixon and Moody Yachts for redefining what is possible on a 45-foot cruising one-hull boat. Interior and cockpit spaces-especially at anchor and boat performance during sailing. This boat is not for everyone, but if you are bored of conventional patterns and want a part of the future, Moody DS45 can only be what you are looking for.
