This quality yacht, ideal for couples or family sailing, delivers smart design, easy sailing, comfortable accommodations -- two and half staterooms and two heads -- and some nice high-end touches -- leather upholstery, full enclosure, hydronic heat, MaxProp, and dinghy on davits with an outboard, just to name a few. Delivered new to -- and never voyaging beyond -- our northwest cruising grounds, "Bel Canto" has accumulated less than a thousand hours on her Yanmar 50 horsepower engine. Motoring's fine but, like her current owners, you'll want to sail, handily done with her in-mast furling main and roller furling headsail. She's even set up with a removable inner forestay if you want to add a staysail. See her today at our Lake Union marina.
Layout and Accommodations
Below decks on "Bel Canto" the warmth and design of the woodwork, upholstery and finishes welcomes you into a quality, England-built environment appreciated by owners, crew and guests. With a generous saloon, well-equipped galley, two sizeable staterooms, two heads, and a bonus crew or kid cabin, the layout provides privacy and comfort for all. There's an Espar hydronic heat system to chase any chill and plenty of opening ports, dorades, and overhead hatches for ventilation when the weather turns warm. During daylight hours, the five translucent hatches, the ports, and an array of windows admits abundant natural light and thoughtfully placed lighting fixtures brighten all the cabins when evening sets in. Cabinets, furnishings, bulkheads, and hull lining -- all of burnished cherry -- and the teak and holly cabin sole help define this Moody as a yacht. As you would expect, there's hot and cold pressure water service in the galley and heads, but you might not expect the quality of the plumbing, including stylish single-lever faucets. Here are some key features of the layout, fore to aft:
Forward Stateroom and Head
Even with a long and wide double vee-berth -- easily divisable into two singles -- there's still plenty of dressing space in the forward stateroom. Storage abounds in eight hullside cabinets, cavernous compartments under the mattresses, and a wide hanging locker to starboard with shelving inside. Across from the locker to port, the completely private, easy to clean includes a Jabsco toilet, vanity, cabinets, an overhead hatch and a tank minder.
Comfortable blue leather settees to either side of the saloon -- the port one long enough to serve as an adult sea berth -- bracket the centerline, hinged-leaf table with its built in storage. This array provides a great setting for socializing or dining. There's storage under and behind sections of the settees as well as in hullside cabinets. In additon to the four large trunk cabin windows, there are two hullside windows so the outdoors can be appreciated even while seated. Two dorades and two overhead hatches provide ventilation and a shiny brass Weems and Plath pair -- clock and barometer -- combine function with marine elegance. Added attraction: Toshiba flat screen television.
The forward facing nav station resides in the port aft section of the saloon area. Its padded seat, backed by a tall locker, doubles as storage. A broad, hinged-top desk and the surrounding instrument panels create a suitable space for the skipper or navigator to plan the voyage -- or for a youngster to do his or her homework. Electronics at the station include:
Raymarine Pathfinder SL70 radar
Horizon Intrepid VHF
Magnum energy monitor
AC/DC breaker board
Kenwood MP3/CD/AM/FM stereo
The starboard aft section of the saloon area is home to the storage-rich galley. Corian counters, twin deep stainless steel sinks, a large refrigerator/freezer, a Whirlpool microwave, a two-burner SMEV propane stove and oven, and a hinged waste bin are among the features.
The private aft head, with its separate stall shower and wood cabinetry, adjoins the galley and also has an entrance from the master stateroom. All of the head facilites are aligned along the starboard hullside, opposite the large access doors to the centerline engine space.
Convertible bonus crew, kid, sea berth cabin
On the port side aft of the nav station lies a pass-through cabin linking the saloon and the aft stateroom. As in the aft head, the inboard side of the cabin is composed of access doors to the engine space. On the outboard side along the hull is a tall storage cabinet topped by a child-sized mattress. Less obvious is a covered opening cut into the aft cabin bulkhead. With the cover removed, the mattress can be extended to adult length.
On a center cockpit yacht, one expects to find a spacious master stateroom aft. You won't be disappointed in that regard on this Moody. Not only is there long, wide, centerline island berth, there's space to move about, large storage units, a padded sit down and tie your Topsiders bench -- all in all a bright, airy cabin well suited for a skipper and his or her partner.
The cockpit on "Bel Canto" provides much more space than found on many center cockpit yachts, with room for a sizeable crew to gather or for one or two to stretch out for a nap. Its protected by a dodger, bimini and full enclosure. The teak sole and seat tops provide good footing and a great look, but for maximum comfort you may want to deploy the full set of Bottomsider cushions on the seats. Here are some of the sailing ease and comfort features arrayed around the cockpit:
B&G wind instrument
B&G speed instrument
B&G depth instrument
Standard Horizon GPS Chart 150 (removable for storage)
Lewmar #48 ST primary winches, easily reached from helm
Lewmar #30 ST line handling winch on cabin top

Genoa car control lines with sheetstoppers,
Pedestal with Whitlock wheel, single lever engine control, Whitlock compass, foldaway table.
Additional portable electronics aboard include an Icom M1 VHF, an Icom M72 VHF, and a Garmin GPS Chart 150.
A scoop transom with built-in steps makes it easy to get aboard deck from dinghy or dock, while the spacious side, aft and fore decks make moving around on this Moody safe and comfortable. Pulpit, pushpits, stanchions and lifelines, plus an effective non-skid and deck-circling bulwarks all add to keeping the crew secure. Raymarine radar antenna is pole-mounted at the transom. Also at the transom: a Magma propane BBQ, a Lifesling, and dinghy davits with Caribe inflatable and Nissan outboard. At the bow, in the chain locker there's an electric Simpson Lawrence Horizon Express electric windlass with controls at the helm to handle the Bruce anchor and other ground tackle.
Selden aluminum spars include a roller furling mast, boom with end sheeting and a 6:1 advantage mainsheet, plus a Rodkicker solid vang. Headsail furler is a Furlex 300s. The 142% genoa was new three years ago and is described as in "very good" condition. The mainsail is described as "good."
The yacht's electrical system, in additon to shore power and numerous AC outlets throughout the cabins, includes a Magnum inverter with monitor, an 800 amp hour house AGM battery bank, start battery, and a 125 amp alternator. The current owner has upgraded the grounding system to US standards.
The Yanmar 4JH3BE 50 horsepower diesel has less than a thousand hours on it. and spins a 3-blade Max-Prop. There is a PYI dripless seal.
