A change in my health and other personal circumstances has meant that I am not using this beautiful yacht as much as I'd planned. I am therefore offering a half share to allow her to be exercised as she deserves. Kandoo is a wonderful example of the Dixon magic wrt deck saloons. She was the first of class (1991) of 24 yachts. I have renewed just about everything over the past two years and have the receipts; no expense spared. All new navigation, radar and AIS equipment is planned for this season.
See assortment of photographs below, all of which were taken over the past 2 years.

Currently ashore in Fertilia, north of Alghero in Sardinia but probably moving to Cagliari in June. A truly beautiful sailing area. Sailing plan for the future to be mutually agreed.

Hi Terry, That sounds like something my wife and I might be interested in. We love the look of the 38cc, but when we saw the DS models were very impressed with the ability to stay out of any nasty weather. We've been keeping an eye on a couple of 43's for sale with plans to check them out this summer when we travel to Europe to sail with some friends in northern Germany. (We are from Canada and just retired-it seems like almost all Moody's are in Europe). If your boat and idea are still available at that point, maybe we can visit to have a look and make some plans. What type of arrangement were you thinking of? We'll check back with you to make sure you haven't already found a partner. If you have already found someone, please let us know. Bill Dawson, email is:
