 1984/5 Moody 27 Fin Keel Sailing Yacht


Volvo 2002 Engine, In Mast Reefing, Anchor Winch etc.


Here we have a unique opportunity to obtain a well regarded british built family cruising yacht at auction. Obtained by us as a Marina Repossession with clear title, all paperwork and proof of VAT Paid status.


The boat is a Moody 27, ordered and built in 1984 and launched for the 1985 season with the later Volvo 2002 engine as opposed to the MD7b fitted to earlier models.


Externally, the boat is in very nice condition with almost showroom condition gelcoat, just in need of a polish. She has the optional grey coloured non slip gelcoat decks.


2 Lewmar genoa winches in the cockpit with a further single Gibb self tailing winch for the reefing line and another Lewmar winch on the coachroof with jam clutches for the lines led aft from the mast. Alloy toerail and stanchions with stainless steel pulpit, pushpit and guardwires. On the foredeck is a Simpson-Lawrence manual anchor winch and chain jammer. There is a vast cockpit locker to port and a small self contained gas locker to starboard.


The rig is the standard Kemp mast and boom with a roller furling headsail system, in mast mainsail reefing system and a Selden gas boom strut. Stainless steel standing rigging of unknown age but believed replaced last in 1998 when the in mast mainsail system was fitted. Both Mainsail and Genoa are in good usable condition but would benefit from a clean and new UV strips.


Internally, the boats woodwork needs completely stripping due to the varnish discolouring and peeling which has caused staining to the veneer. This is recoverable as the underlying veneer is still good and is not rotted or lifting. This has occurred due to the boat being unattended and closed up for the past 5+ years.


The blue upholstery is in good usable condition but could benefit from a wash but no stains, rips or tears. The headlining is in excellent order being clean and not sagging or dropping anywhere.


Other work required internally is the resealing of the cabin windows as 2 are known to leak in heavy rain, attention to the switch panel as corrosion has caused some of the switches to stop working and the heads could do with attention as it will pump out but not in. The gas system onboard has not been used or inspected and as such, should be checked and inspected  by a qualified person before use.


The engine is a Volvo Penta 2002 18hp Twin Cylinder Diesel and is in full working order and in fair cosmetic condition for its age. Last run 3 days ago. The onboard batteries are shot from being unused for years but one replacement will be provided. The fuel in the onboard diesel tank is known to be contaminated with water caused by a broken seal on the fuel deck filler but should the winning bidder require, we will gladly jury rig a 20 litre temporary fuel tank so that the boat can be relocated under its own power.


Onboard electronics comprise Autohelm ST50 Log, Autohelm ST50 Echo Sounder, Husun 55 VHF Radio, Autohelm Tiller Pilot (Untested) and bulkhead compass.


Other inventory includes a Maxxon 2.5M Inflatable Dinghy, Fitted Transom Boarding Ladder,  Lifebuoy and Light, Ensign and Staff, Fenders, Warps etc. There are also the stainless hoops for a sprayhood but we do not have the canvas hood.


The boat was last out of the water 9 months ago and we are informed that there were no apparent signs of any osmosis. The bilge is pretty dry – the keelbolts have some rust on them but are sound and are believed to have been replaced in 1998.


Overall, a basically sound boat which has suffered from neglect over the past 5 or so years. A very easy restoration project to turn her into a mint example and should take about 10 days labour and cost under £1000 in materials to achieve.


Good examples are selling from between £20,000 - £25,000 so grab a great boat for considerably less than its true value.


The boat is currently lying afloat in Chichester Marina – Viewings STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY can be arranged by calling 07809 524834 or our office 01935 83876. Should you have any questions, please feel free to call us.


The boat is advertised elsewhere so we reserve the right to withdraw at any time without notice.


The boat is being sold as is, where is with no warranty given or implied. It is entirely up to the purchaser to ascertain and satisfy him or herself of the boats safety, condition and suitability for intended purpose. A deposit of 25% to be paid within 5 days of the auction ending and the full balance within a further 9 days. Payment to be by cash, draft or bank transfer. No paperwork will be handed over until payment has cleared in full. Storage will become the responsibility of the buyer from the end of the auction onward. You are bidding to buy, not to kick the keel!


Many thanks for looking and good luck bidding.
