1985 Moody 47 for sale in Baja California Sur, Mexico

1985 Moody 47 for sale in Baja California Sur, Mexico

1985 Moody 47 lying in Mexico.

This Moody 47 spent 1987-1997 ashore in dry storage, followed by 10 years on a fresh water lake, so it has not seen the usage or wear and tear you would expect from a 30+ year old boat.

The Moody 47 is a great example of yet another successful design to come from the drawing board of Bill Dixon. With a full beam master cabin aft and a spacious saloon this centre cockpit cruiser is well thought out and comfortable for longer distance cruising.

The current owners have recently replaced the navigation equipment to a modern Garmin system, added a Kubota generator, new ICOM SSB, Maxwell windlass along with a new stove and water heater.

Owner’s comments:

‘Divershun’ has been well maintained, teak is in great shape, the gel coat waxed to look new too, over all a very clean boat.

One owner from new 1986 Moody 58 Custom Sloop now for sale

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015
One owner from new 1986 Moody 58 Custom Sloop now for sale

One owner from new 1986 Moody 58 Custom Sloop now for sale

This, one owner from new, Moody 58 Custom Sloop ‘Ardent Spirit’ was designed by Bill Dixon and built in 1986 by A.H. Moody & Sons at their yard in Bursledon, England as the first of a series. Four were built.

Under the name ‘Kindred Spirit’ she was sailed across the Atlantic for the Annapolis and Ft. Lauderdale Boat Shows in the fall of 1986. She was then sailed back to England for the 1987 London Boat Show and received excellent reviews in yachting magazines on both sides of the Atlantic.

She was purchased from Moody by Dr. and Mrs Beiser in January 1988 who renamed her ‘Ardent Spirit’ and a few years later had her hull color changed from white to black.

A great many modifications were carried out at Moody’s yard — for instance, electric winches, Maxprop feathering propeller, watermaker, radar, SSB radiotelephone, and a new mainsail with full-length battens and lazy jacks were all added, the lifelines and pulpits were raised, the bow fitting was rebuilt to take a larger anchor and the refrigeration system was improved.

Later additions include a better generator and watermaker, supplementary AC refrigeration compressor, electric jib furler and manual forestaysail furler, new opening portlights at the forward end of the saloon, a lazy bag for the mainsail, and a large fiberglass-bottom inflatable dinghy that stows in chocks on the foredeck and is raised and lowered with an electric winch.

More recently new North Sails, electric toilets and a bow thruster were installed.

‘Ardent Spirit’ has never raced or chartered, normally cruised by owners alone.

Brokers Comments

Unlike most modern yachts which are designed for boat shows rather than sailing, ARDENT SPIRIT has a build standard, specification and sea keeping qualities which make her better than more recent boats.

Having previously owned 6 boats before purchasing ARDENT SPIRIT which they have now owned for 25 years Dr. Baiser (a renowned marine author and journalist) and Mrs Baiser finally found the perfect yacht and with their extensive knowledge and ability have maintained her to the highest standards.
