Sunbird International Yacht Sales are pleased to present this stunning blue hulled Moody 40 Centre Cockpit, this boat shows in excellent condition and viewing is essential.
Full Cut and Polish process completed 09/2016 to bring the hull back to like new condition.
"Sold by us previously, very sensible and meticulous owner."
"British boat building at its best in both time and skills. Bluebird is a beautifully built late edition Moody. She is a very well balanced sailing boat, sailing well and extremely safely on all points of sail. She can be sailed single-handed as all controls go to the helm position. We have sailed her safely as a couple for a very enjoyable 7 years".
Bluebird has a magnificent aft cabin, outstanding cherry-lined salon and a very good nav station.
Everything a couple needs to go sailing either together or with guests/family.
