Spacious single level living Moody 45DS.

The Moody 45DS is a special yacht offering a single level sailing and living space, with three generous guest cabins and two ensuites. The innovation in design from Bill Dixon is seen throughout the yacht which has led to creating a very safe and reliable cruising yacht. Pisces is a great example.

Pisces is a luxurious, large cruising yacht which can be easily managed by a couple and will safely take you across oceans or simply out for a day sail!

These yachts do not come to market often in this part of the world, so a must-see boat!
