Moody Deck Saloon

The success of the Judel Vrolijk yachts on the race course and Bill Dixon’s super yacht custom design experience make the 54 Deck Saloon a fast and spacious cruiser for sailing around the world. 

Bringing together some of the key elements of motor yachts, catamarans and monohull cruisers in a way that makes this Deck Saloon a very unique and appealing yacht.  Even if you’re short on crew, the design is for easy sailing. Moody’s trademark twin helm positions, the self tacking head sail integrated into deck, electronic engine control at starboard helm station and 2 electric winches in cockpit make it all possible.  The single rudder Jefa steering, a world leader in mechanical steering systems, makes the 54 a dream to helm. This is a safe and seaworthy yacht for the sailor wanting robust performance and true one level living in a blue water cruiser.

Appointed with 4 cabins and 3 heads with generous Headroom throughout the Moody 54ds sets the bar high for luxurious living.
