    Boat type:
    Moody 36DS
    Cruising area:
    It is with a very heavy heart I have decided to sell our boat Le Trek.

    she is a very rare yacht, being number 4 of 4 of the 1981 moody 36 ds versions.(deck saloon) and the only one in the uk.

    considerable expense and work has gone into her, and she has had a lot of money, time and effort spent on her, to make her into the lovely yacht she is.(14.5k on new engine (beta 43) gearbox,prop,shaft and bow thruster.(all bills to show) and various very expensive modifications and upgrades we have carried out since ownership over the last two years. she has had well over £22,000 plus spent on her over the last 4/5 years!! with every bill to prove!!

    I have just recently professionally blasted her hull to bare bones, epoxy filled and faired where needed,2 coats of epoxy,plus 1 coat of underwater primer, and 3 coats of industrial strength antifoul with an incredible 90 month life!

    she then had an expensive Ambassador rope cutter fitted, and a very, very expensive Darglow Maxprop self feathering prop fitted,so under water is fully refurbished. All pictures are available for you to peruse, as are spec sheets from the coatings etc. Should you so wish.

    she also had all underwater anodes replaced before going back into the water.

    When we first bought Le Trek from Bristol, on the way home we called into a well known boatyard at southwold near Lowestoft......

    I hate stuffing boxes, so had it removed and had a Volvo dripless seal fitted professionally,(which led to further works needed due to shaft whip!) I had a new cutlass bearing fitted, and her keel bolts were drawn and inspected then painted.....(all bills/receipts available totalling over £3200!!.)

    Standing rigging is approx. 10 years old (bill to prove) and has been inspected and professionally tensioned, at the same time as the above.

    I don't have an inventory ....but from memory she has everything needed including cutlery!

    She has all autohelm St 50 instruments fitted a few months ago. Wind, speed and depth, plus repeaters, both internal and external.+ all transducers,(with all manuals)

    1 x Furuno radar.

    Autohelm St 3000 autopilot.

    Full complete sail set x 2.....These include, two headsails, two mainsails, two spinnakers (1 with spinnaker sock) ,and two storm sails.

    1 x life raft.

    Full set of current flares.

    One fixed dsc radio.

    One hand held radio.

    1 x navtex.

    Plus various spares, parts etc.

    All the above works as it should, with no known problems.(the speed and wind instruments will need calibrating as I haven't had the chance to do so)

    she has two wheeled helms.......outer helm at rear, and inner helm and seat that lifts up out of port seating area.(so best of both worlds!)

    she has a rear double cabin with on suite heads, main cabin sleeps 3 ,and front cabin is a very large double.

    she is priced for a very, very quick and no hassle sale at £25k Firm (her current market value is £35k +)

    sorry, I will not entertain any offers at all, she is priced to actually sell, and is a real winter bargain.

    you could not buy a decent rib outfit for this price.......and this is a well sorted, ocean going, blue water cruiser, that I wouldn't hesitate to cross any ocean world wide in!!

    genuine reluctant reason for sale.

    only genuine interested buyers with the funds in place please.

    currently at royal Northumberland yacht club in Blyth. (north east, uk)

    I thought I would try members first before selling elsewhere...........any interested parties please pm me or call on 07949 018018.

    Please no more scammers,timewasters,text messages or chancers with no funds......NO OFFERS, MEANS NO OFFERS!!
