Come Say Hi To Our New Moody 346 Sailboat!

After selling our last sailboat in New Zealand a year ago, we finally have a new home on the water. Yippee! 

Come say hi to our new-to-us Moody 346. Isn't she adorable?


She's currently on the hard at the Indiantown Marina in Florida while we do some repairs, clean the place up, organize things and get ready to get back out on the water. The marina is a nice place to work and hang out in and we even have some well known sailing bloggers next to us on the hard - MJ Sailing. Such a small world. 

It is so hot in this part of Florida that I barely have enough energy to type this post, so I'll have to do a proper update on our new boat and our plans later. But the good news is that this boat has a fridge (unlike our last one), so that means cold beer is at hand! 


Chaos on board as we do repairs, clean and organize.

    1. Thanks! We're pretty excited to be boat owners again. Although, that will probably change once we start writing some big checks soon for equipment :-)

  4. Oh goodness! I love those boats! I had hoped to find a Moody up here when we were looking, but there are not very many in this part of the U.S She is lovely and I am looking forward to seeing more of her! Congrats!!

    1. Moodys are hard to find in North America so we were thrilled to find this one.

    1. Thanks Capt Pete - our first stop will be Greece! Well, not really, but we both would like to sail over there one day and meet you in person!

    1. Of course - we'd love for you guys to pop by! You'll have to sign in at the office and then pop around to the work yard. Just to warn you - things are a bit chaotic and messy as we get ready to splash on Tuesday :-) Looking forward to meeting you!

    1. Thanks! We're still working through tons of stuff and chaos on the hard, but we're hoping to splash today. Hopefully, I'll have more time then to take proper photos and write a post about our new boat.

We'd LOVE to hear from you! If we're out on the water cruising, our internet access will be limited and it may take a while before we're able to respond to your comments and pay a return visit to your blog, but please know that we will once we can get connected.
