Designed by Bill Dixon, this is one of the most popular smaller Moody's, the 31 has excellent accommodation including a good sized aft cabin. Capricorn is the bilge keel version, making her perfect for exploring our shallower waters. The owners are retiring from sailing, so Capricorn is sold with everything.
Coming out of the water in September for antifoul and survey.
