Owners Comments

The Moody 45DS offers a whole new way of sailing. The single level cockpit and saloon are perfect for cruising. With panoramic views from the saloon you can pilot from inside or out and with the internal helm auto pilot, plus engine controls from the nav table - she's comfortable in any weather!
Design Unlimited are responsible for the interior design, they design many of the world's superyachts! The minute you step into the saloon through the patio doors she feels light and airy, a completely different yachting experience, with amazing views from the saloon.
The Moody 45 Deck Saloon sails beautifully. Her long waterline as a result of the plumb bow and sail plan means she will effortlessly cruise at 9 knots. The raised steering position offers great views over the cabin top when you're standing or through and around the cabin when you're seated.
The anchor locker has a flip-over system so you can easily drop anchor with an electric winch when you need it.
She feels safe and comfortable under sail as a result of the high bulwarks and continuous S/S handholds on the cabin. She has the more expensive option of an electric in-mast furling by Selden and a self-tacking headsail making her a dream to sail. The twin rudders give lots of bite and the Jefa rack and pinion steering system gives you great feel at the helm.
You get great visibility from both inside and outside helm positions. Electric winches combined with the autopilot means single handed sailing is a breeze. The cockpit 'sun-roof' slides back allowing you to easily switch between full sun and shade.
Odyssea is easy to board from the folding down swim platform or via the fold-out steps in the bulwarks and the teak decks all round look stunning.
The storage for long distance cruising on the Moody 45DS can only be described as massive and the stern garage takes an inflatable dinghy and outboard.
