Moody Yachts (built by Marine Projects of Plymouth) need little introduction. The Eclipse range are deck saloon (pilothouse) style cruising yachts and although they were marketed as motorsailors that I think discredits their performance rather as they are reviewed to sail well.
The Eclipse 33 has packed a lot of accommodation and storage into a fairly compact length but has remained to me a good looking boat, certainly not typical of motorsailor lines either. The deck saloon makes her feel spacious and light and really pleasant to be aboard and the dual helm stations allow for the (sometimes not so great) weather to not be too offputting.
This example had in particular a meticulous second owner who had her since 1998 until recently. Everything appears to have been well maintained, kept clean and well ordered. She is well equipped and there are manuals aboard for everything! Within the last 10 years she has been re-rigged including a new Furlex.
These were popular boats when they were built and remain sought after now. Some upgrading may be needed depending on your use and requirements but everything is there. She is afloat at present but will be lifted ashore shortly
