"Manatee" has all the characteristic qualities of the Moody 27 - well built to lines which have not dated; seaworthy with a good ballast ratio; nimble sailing performance; comfortable to live on. She belies her age having been well cared for over the years and improved through major refits and upgrading by her recent owners since 2010. She is ready to go sailing.
Having inspected her she is a lovely example and we thoroughly recommend early viewing.
