Moody 45 DS is the premier yacht of the Moody Range.
In accordance with this guiding principle, the new generation of Moody’s will be built in a highly developed Yacht production facility with an experienced staff who have the superior skills required and who also have an unreserved and lengthy passion for sailing.
40 years ago Moody was the trendsetter with the conception and creation of the first deck saloon yacht. This legend will be continued with a new design and all of the tradition and passion for the sea.
HanseYachts AG, having recently purchased the Moody “Trademark“, is moving forward to capitalize on the 150 years of Moody boat building tradition.
Bill Dixon, with more that 20 years of Moody design experience and in collaboration with the superb Hanse design team, has initiated a preliminary design for a new Moody 45 DS Deck Salon world cruiser.
The new Moody 45 DS is built, taking into consideration the passion of over 1,200 Moody owners that the Dixon design has pleased and gratified, as a comfortable cruising yacht that is seaworthy and easy to handle.

A particularly attractive feature is the huge aft cabin, stretching right across the full width of the boat. Even with its full size double berth there's still plenty of space, and the cabin also has its own hatchway to the cockpit. The forecabin sleeps two, and the saloon settees provide two more berths if needed. And for climbing aboard or swimming, the whole centre section of the transom folds down and forms steps leading to the water.

The concept and design of Moody 33 centre cockpit fin keel model was completed by Angus Primrose in 1972 and tooling was completed in November of that year. This was first production yacht developed jointly between A.H. Moody & Son Ltd, Southampton and Marine Projects (Plymouth) Limited. It was an immediate success and models have appeared ever since. Power and Sail magazine, October 1974: 'Planned as a comfortable family cruising yacht of light displacement and with a high performance under sail or power, the Moody 33 shows many of the characteristics to be found in the more trendy production yachts of today. Clean, smooth, sleek and with high freeboard, a carefully calculated layout below decks, a roomy central cockpit with two-berth cabin aft, a simple masthead sloop rig, and the fin keel and skeg rudder profile expected of fast yachts, the Moody 33 has all these and a good deal more besides'.
