This Moody 27 is the predecessor to the Moody 28 and both versions offer small family cruising.
The Moody 27 looks fairly modern even though the design dates back to the early eighties.
This particular Moody 27 is a good clean example of her class and is regularly used throughout the season from her base on the Fal.
This yacht has a winter cradle included and the mooring is available subject to a separate discussion.
If you are looking for a robust little yacht to enjoy with your family then this example should be on your list.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
