The Moody 45 Classic combines the best of modern design and engineering with the traditional values associated with Moody Yachts. She represents the spirit of a golden age for yachting, whilst being completely up to date in terms of performance and comfort. The warm and elegant interior, created using rich mahogany veneers and solid mahogany trims, inspires a feeling of timelessness and wellbeing. The Moody design and build team’s many years of experience, both in the workshop and on the water, shows clearly in attention to detail. Careful selection of high quality materials ensures that the Moody 45 Classic will give pleasure for many years to come. In the Moody 45 Classic, designer Bill Dixon and Watervision have created a fast and comfortable cruising yacht, equally suitable for marina life, short hops along the coast or for longer offshore passage making. The twin wheel steering positions provide excellent visibility and security. Well-cut sails are standard and drive the yacht effortlessly on all points of sailing. On deck, the Moody shows its pedigree and reputation for quality, using powerful winches, halyard, jib and mainsheet ball-bearing blocks, as well as substantial chainplate fittings, cleats and fairleads. Two large lazarette lockers will accommodate all the yachts extra equipment, even diving and kite-surfing gear. This elegant, classic yacht excels with her classic but functional interior layout. The saloon provides generous seating for six, around a beautiful star pattern veneer mahogany table, while the navigation station is both comfortable and practical, whether relaxing or making a night passage. Three well-lit and well-ventilated double cabins continue the warm interior theme. The master cabin includes spacious locker storage and a desk/vanity unit. The two roomy heads compartments are both fitted with solid mahogany worktops, classic oval wash basins and storage space. The spacious galley has a 3 burner stove, a large refrigerator, double sink and Corian™ work surfaces and will surely inspire creative cooking to compliment the unique Moody style. The Moody range offers the perfect solution for cruising sailors. Our high standards for construction and equipment, together with our continuing attention to detail, are intended to give you the very best sailing, wherever you voyage. So the Moody 45 Classic comes complete as a sail-away cruiser, without the need to upgrade essential deck and interior equipment. Moody 45 Classic – truly timeless elegance for today, a choice to be proud of.
