The Moody 419 is a direct development of the Moody 41 (and forerunner to the Moody 422, 425 and then Moody 44) and has been designed to improve upon and enhance the accommodation of this already successful and proven yacht, whilst retaining the exceptional sailing characteristics of this design which make her a delight to sail under all condition and in all circumnstances.
Angus Primrose Ltd (Bill Dixon) have produced a craft which achieves all these elements. With her three separate sleeping cabins he Moody 419 can sleep six in gracious style, or by using the saloon this number could be increased to nine without loss of comfort.
Sailing performance is ensured by a good sail area/displacement ratio, a long waterline and high prismatic coefficient of the hull, whilst her longer fin keel combined with the balanced rudder which is positioned well aft, maintains her directional stability.
The hulls of the Moody 419s are built in the Lloyds approved factories of Marine Projects (Plymouth) Ltd. and every boat carried a Lloyds Hull Construction Certificate. Marine Projects are firmly established as one of Britain’s finest production Boatbuilders and the care and attention to detail upon which their reputation is based is clearly reflected in the internal fitting out which is all in teak.
Whilst being an extremely powerful sailing yacht, the Moody 419 offers exceptionally elegant and spacious accommodation, sleek and distinctive lines, an exhilarating sailing performance and overall represents a superb investment.
