2017 Moody DS54

(Boat is coming to Fort Lauderdale soon, currently in Trinidad)


The Moody DS 54 combines everything you want in a cruising sailing yacht. This is a boat with an expansive cockpit, tremendous safety and security features, Moody's 'Living on One Level' concept, and amenities you would expect on a mega yacht. All of these luxury features and more are built into a hull that sails beautifully. 

Originating in England the legendary Moody yachts are now manufactured in Germany and designed by the famous Bill Dixon known for dynamic yacht design and innovative production processes. Unmatched excellence in design and the use of traditional manufacturing methods by professional craftsman has established Moody as one of the most illustrious names in the yachting industry. 



Moody 54 Deck Saloon


The success of Judel Vrolijk yachts on the race course and Bill Dixon’s super yacht custom design experience make the Moody 54 Deck Salon a fast and spacious cruiser for sailing around the world. 

Bringing together some of the key elements of motor yachts, catamarans and monohull cruisers in a way that makes this Deck Saloon a very unique and appealing yacht. Even if you’re short on crew, the design is for easy sailing. Moody’s trademark twin helm positions, the self tacking head sail integrated into deck, electronic engine control at starboard and backboard helm station, as well as in the saloon and 2 electric winches in cockpit make it all possible. The single rudder Jefa steering, a world leader in mechanical steering systems, makes the 54 a dream to helm. This is a safe and seaworthy yacht for the sailor wanting robust performance and true one level living in a blue water cruiser. Appointed with 3 cabins and 3 heads with generous Headroom throughout the Moody 54 DS sets the bar high for luxurious living. 

Owners confirm that once you have owned a Moody Deck Saloon there is no going back.
