New Moody Deck Saloon 48 launched in December 2023
With the DS48, Moody presents its new medium-sized blue water yacht for special demands. Like her larger and smaller sisters, the award-winning DS41 and the DS54, the Moody DS48 is characterised by her spacious saloon with a perfect 360-degree view to the outside. Equally unique is the comfortable and safe Moody walkaround deck with a high bulwark and fixed railing. The well thought-out concept now also ensures the typical Moody “monomaran” experience in the 48-foot class – like a catamaran on a single hull.
Without a disturbing step between the generously protected cockpit and the deck saloon, the Moody DS48 offers plenty of space and area on one level. Designed in collabor ation with Bill Dixon and the team at Dixon Yacht Design, the Moody DS48 is another of the brand’s models that epitomises the unique combination of volume and performance of the ground-breaking Moody DS range.
Take command and navigate with ease by controlling and operating the entire yacht from either the cockpit or the interior steering position. This not only enhances convenience but also ensures your safety even in rough weather, as you maintain control from a sheltered vantage point.
Experience the comfort of the Moody Smart Tender System, which provides you with a genuine dinghy garage. Thanks to the Moody Smart Tender System, your dinghy is ready for use in just a few simple steps or effortlessly stowed away after an exciting day on the water.
Thanks to the deck saloon overlapping with the aft cabin, the Moody DS48 offers around 25 per cent more interior space – as much as on a 58-foot yacht. Including the large and luxurious master cabin with a large island bed and en-suite bathroom, a total of three cabins and up to three bathrooms with separate showers are possible on just 48 feet. The third cabin can also be configured as a multifunctional space, for example to accommodate a washing machine with integrated tumble dryer. Plenty of natural light in the saloon and cabins and a well thought-out ventilation concept on both decks ensure a pleasant atmosphere throughout the boat
The high-performance rig with three pairs of spreaders and a sail area of up to 156 sqm guarantees excellent sailing characteristics. A furling mast with double forestay is available as an option.
