The Halberdier is a 36 foot motor sailer. It is the first all glass fibre yacht built by Moodys. The Halberdier brings with her all the highest standards of construction, joinery, finish and equipment that is associated with the phrase 'Moody built'. The design itself is by Alan F Hill and the choice of motor-sailer reflects the demand for a quality yacht of good performance under both power and sail with the maximum of roomy accommodation. These aims have been achieved - and please note that the dictionary defines a Halberdier as a dual purpose weapon - a combined spear and battleaxe. The first-class moulding is by Marine Construction Ltd. Following is a list of equipment which came with the 'Halberdier': 2 toilets, refrigerator, hot water, pressure system, self draining cockpit, moulded to Lloyds, iron keel, deck superstructure of sandwich construction.
