MoodyMoody 27
Introduced: December 1981
Ceased: August 1985
Built by: Marine Projects (Plymouth) Limited
Designer: Bill Dixon
Boats Built: 162
Berths: 5/6

She is designed with a fast hull and a good ballast ratio to make her both stiff and seaworthy whilst a substantial diesel engine gives a good turn of speed under power.
The accommodation consists of 5/6 berths in two separate cabins with good headroom throughout (including the large toilet compartment). The spaciously attractive saloon area, with seating/eating arrangements for up to six, has plenty of stowage space and a well-equipped galley that features a full sized cooker, stainless steel sink and again plenty of stowage. In addition, there are hanging lockers for both wet and dry clothing.
