The Boat

2000 Moody 46

This is likely one of the most modern, outfitted, and clean examples of the Moody 46 Boats you will find anywhere. The boat has been extensively upgraded with over a 1000 watts of solar, new inverter/charger, electric freshwater flush toilets and nearly every electronic navigational aid having been replaced. The boat has forward scan sonar, 4G Radar, and a host of other upgrades to make this the perfect blue water cruiser.

Vessel Walkthrough

The interior is spacious and bright with attractive cherry joinery. The three cabin, two head layout offers accommodations for seven people and has a lovely main salon with plenty of room to entertain.  

Beginning in the forward guest cabin, there is a comfortable, center-line, double island berth with four large upper cabinets, two felt-lined vanity cabinets on either side of the berth, two large drawers below the berth and a hanging locker. There is an opening-deck hatch and a door leading aft to the head.

The forward head is located aft of the forward guest cabin on the starboard side of the boat and is accessible from both the forward guest cabin and main salon.  It has an electric fresh water flush toilet, wood vanity cabinet, mirror, sink, stainless fixtures, dark green counter, deck hatch and a shower with a dedicated seat and curtain.     

Across from the forward head on the port side there is a third cabin with two twin bunks, a deck hatch and a large closet.  The closet has shelves that can be removed to create a hanging locker.  

The comfortable raised main salon has abundant natural light with two opening hatches and a total of eight hull port lights and salon windows at eye level.  There is a folding leaf dining table and a c-shaped cloth settee on the port side with new coverings.  To starboard, there are two armchairs that are separated by a cocktail table and liquor cabinet.  The armchairs have removable stools that can be used for additional seating around the dining table.  There is generous storage in the main salon with upper cabinets on both sides of the boat and below the settee and within the bases of the armchairs.

The functional u-shaped galley offers a safe and secure work area that is convenient to the companionway and open to the main salon.  It has a large counter top and plenty of storage.  There is a double stainless steel sink, a front-loading Isotherm stainless steel refrigerator (11/2018), and top-loading Isotherm freezer (11/2018), 

NEW Force 10 gimbaled propane stove with oven, a Xantex propane sniffer with sensor in galley, recessed microwave, integrated exhaust fan, built-in trash bin, large solid surface counter top and abundant storage.  

The navigation station is located on the port side of the boat and has a forward facing chart table, book shelf, cabinet and full height vented wet locker.  The navigation station houses the electric panel, B&G chart plotter display, B&G autopilot controls, B&G instruments, and ICOM VHF radio (NEW 2019).

Both the galley and the nav station are open to the raised main salon, which adds to the overall feeling of openness.  When sitting at the chart table or working in the galley one has unobstructed views of the main salon.  

There is hallway/passage cabin located aft of the nav station that leads to the master stateroom. The hallway/passage cabin has a dedicated child berth above a large built-in sideboard/locker unit that is perfect for storing tools and spare parts.  On the inboard side of the passage cabin there are two large engine room access doors.

The roomy master stateroom has a queen center-line island berth with seating on either side. There is a mirror and vanity located near the foot of the berth along with storage cabinets and lockers to port and starboard of the berth.  The en-suite head has attractive dark green counters, stainless fixtures, a sink, electric fresh water flush toilet and dedicated shower stall.  

There is plenty of headroom throughout the boat!

In October 2012, Eoti sustained cosmetic damage when she was on-the-hard and lifted off her stands by a storm surge during Sandy. She floated across the marina parking lot, along with a number of other boats, and came to rest leaning upright against inactive power lines. She was placed back on jack stands and her hull, deck, bottom, keel, rudder and rigging were all thoroughly inspected. The following repairs were performed:

  • Replaced the bow rail, stanchions and all life-lines
  • Replaced the bow, stern, steaming and tri-color lights with LEDs
  • Replaced one damaged port and another undamaged port
  • Removed the bottom paint, repaired scratches, and gouges on the bottom, and primed and painted the bottom
  • Repaired scratches and gouges in the hull
  • Painted the hull, including the gold accent and red boot stripe
