Believed to be one of only four built, this is a striking example of the handsome Moody 38 Caledonia Edition.

A high spec model, the Caledonia editions have blue hulls and white painted masts and this particular one has a rigid cockpit windscreen and the blue leather saloon upholstery, as well as a custom stern gantry with solar panels and wind generator and a custom full cockpit Bimini and enclosure.

It has been a pleasure sailing our beautiful Saorla. She has carried us safely and comfortably from Chichester to Ibiza. She is a great passage making yacht but it is also lovely to be onboard when in port or at anchor in all weathers. Regrettably, another new knee replacement forces sale and we will miss her dearly.

All viewings by private appointment. - See below.

Please note all of our listed yachts are privately owned and berthed at their owner's home port in different marinas along the UK south coast and are not located at one central office.

Therefore, for private views, we will drive to the yacht's individual marina location to meet you at a pre-arranged day and time. As the yachts are sometimes several hours drive along the coast, requests for private appointments should be made only when the yacht is on your radar as a potential purchase.

In the meantime, the majority of our yachts now have online video tours, allowing you to assess the yacht's layout and potential suitability from the comfort of your home, before booking a private view.

Normal Office Hours Monday to Friday 09.30 – 17.30

Saturday by arrangement subject to availability.
