The Moody 376 is a typically spacious centre-cockpit from the Dixon design board. This Moody 376 is fitted out and equipped for extended cruising, and has had a recent new engine, feathering prop, autopilot, sails, standing rigging and dinghy/outboard. Currently moored in mainland Spain, her berth is also available for a purchaser to take over. A really nice looking example of her type, and sensibly priced.

I purchased Aquagem (originally named "Isle of Glass") in Dartmouth in 2009 from the son of the father who originally bought her from new. She had hardly been used with only 400 miles on the the original log. She only had basic electronics etc and sails, ground tackle and all equipment was original.She had also been on hard standing for some years
Consequently, the first few years of my ownership was spent fitting her out for Med. cruising, replacing virtually everything that had a limited lifespan.
I only sailed her cross channel a few times and weekend sailed her from Poole whilst doing the work.
I then decided to replace the engine just for piece of mind, as I was going to sail her around to the med (it was the only thing left that I had not renewed!)
However, in 2013 I had her transported out to Sant Carles by road instead! Hence the very low engine hours.
She still has not covered many sea miles as I have only managed to sail locally and have a couple holidays cruising around Ibiza. However, I have spent a fair amount of time aboard in the marina just improving things. I thought I was keeping her for life!
All the GRP is in very good condition, the topsides are white (original gel coat - not painted, and virtually scuff free). She has a textured GRP non skid deck which is in great condition, requiring no maintenance).
