Can the Moody 45DS be considered the Apple design of sailboats? More than a pilot house, its a true Deck Salon. Literally, the salon is at deck level, with the ability to navigate from within during adverse weather conditions. the layout of the boat is fantastic, from the safety on the deck to twin rudders. Only problem, the deep draft and higher than ICW spec mast, keeping it out of the Pamlico Sound.
