    Be sure to get a proper test sail before buying, not everyone enjoys the cockpit position, be a shame to buy and then find you did not like it.

    The next size up from a 376 is a 425. The 419 is an older design. The Moody Owners Web site. Is the best place to get info. I have had a 425 for 10 years and love it.

    One generation of Moodys had skeg problems. Best to be aware just in case.

    Said to be the older Primrose design.

    With no dis-respect to yourself I have only seen this on chat forums and never spotted any direct evidence. Till evidence appears I have deep suspicions that this has been repeated so often it has become a "known fact".

    I remember back in the day someone advertised for about a year in YM trying to find people who had trouble with Moody rudder arrangements. I don't recall any outcome though.

    Ancient history. As doug748 says it was on the first Primrose designs - 33, 36 and 39/40. Yes it was real, but quickly resolved. Would guess all affected boats were fixed long time ago. Not something to worry about now.

    Appreciate the input Tranona.

    Is there any evidence that you are aware of?

    Not something I can lay my hands on, but believe there was a court case originally. I do know (or knew 30+ years ago) a 39 that did have its skeg rebuilt. Remember it because I bought an engine off the owner who told me about it. Not a big deal to him, though.

    I sailed a Moody 41 from Barcelona to Nice last autumn:



    I was very impressed. They are lovely looking yachts, they sail very well and they are extremely spacious and comfortable. A great choice for a liveaboard.

    @Halcyon lovely video, lovely boat, but that's not the one I'm talking about- I've got my eye on the much older 1980s centre cockpit 41. I don't want to even ask what the one in your video would cost :0
