MOJITO was built in 2003, designed by Bill Dixon, combined with the quality and craftsmanship of Moody. She offers a huge amount of boat for the money – providing potential for extended passage making and the ideal holiday yacht – plus charter potential.
The Moody 64 is a remarkably powerful boat, fully capable of fast passage times across a range of conditions. Her good performance derives from the way her Bill Dixon hull shape balances the power of the underwater sections and lead keel with the tall, high aspect ratio, cutter rig. Despite her size she is easily sailed by two persons – in part courtesy of the hydraulically powered fully furling rig, self tacking staysail and powered winches.
The well finished teak interior designed by Roel Degroot sleeps six guests in three guest cabins and two crew in a separate forward crew cabin - plus a pilot berth in the "study".
The vessel has been constantly well maintained and has a very full inventory – including generator, air-conditioning, bow-thruster, water-maker and more. The yacht benefits from new standing rigging as at summer 2015.
MOJITO is British registered as a “small commercial vessel”..
RCD Status: The yacht conforms with the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive) and is categorised A – “Ocean”
