    Hello,

    My wife and I are considering purchasing a 2000 Moody 46. I would like to know if other owners are satisfied with the sailing performance and build quality of their 46's.

    I know it's a heavy displacement boat with fairly low SA/D ratio but that doesn't always tell the story. The boat seems very sound and well put together and maintained.

    Thank you.

    Hi Nelson
    Since no 46 owners yet I will comment on my M44 in case it is useful. I've just come to the end of my first season with a 1997 M44 and am delighted with it. Fairly gentle sailing here in Greece but it is quick and responsive and a joy to sail. Maybe not as quick as a modern light displacement boat but certainly mademe happy!
    Hopefully a 46 owner will be along to comment soon
    Regards
    Peter

    Hello Peter,

    Thank you so much, I appreciate your reply. After doing more research we have made an offer on the 46. Still interested in any and all comments.
