Owned by a very experienced sailor who has been preparing her for a passage to New Zealand, Moby is truly ready to go. Her owner has had a change in plans and now this turnkey vessel is available. She has had $40k in upgrades over the last year alone and well over that during her current owner’s tenure. Upgrades include a re-power to a Beta Marine engine with less than 100 hours, custom stainless arch with solar and wind power, Lecombele & Schmitt Hydraulic autopilot, New Rocna anchor, Iverson dodger with polycarbonate windows, full batten mainsail, Port Townsend Sails 125% RF genoa, New Inmar aluminum RIB dinghy, new standing rigging, new running rigging and the list goes on. This is truly a just add groceries and go situation.
From the drafting table of Ted Hood, the Bristol 38.8 is one of the best, offshore capable vessels in this size rage. They are comfortable and sea kindly while underway. The interior is well conceived with warm and efficient living spaces and a tremendous amount of storage. Above deck is a safe cockpit with unimpeded side decks as you go forward. The Bristol 38 is smart and beautiful with wonderful lines.
Her price reflects her readiness and the savings is in all the refitting and preparation Moby has received. The value here is the money and sweat equity that have already been spent. Moby is an obvious choice for a buyer looking for a vessel that is ready to go.
