Moody 54 DS #057, VERUS AMORE, was ordered by her current first owners at the Newport Boat Show and delivered in the summer of 2019. She exemplifies the popular and cleverly designed Moody 54 DS, featuring a stunning dark blue hull and low-maintenance flexiteek decking. The interior includes a raised floor and seating in the saloon table area, a change implemented from hull #55 onwards, providing much more headroom over the port guest cabin berth. Finished in Mahogany, with beige leather upholstery and black-flecked Corian countertops, she is the galley-up version, equipped with extra twin-drawer fridge-freezers, a washing machine, diesel heater, 60Kbtu air conditioning, generator, watermaker, and much more.
Extremely easy to sail yet very fast, the boat is equipped with twin electric furlers, a self-tacking jib, and electric in-mast furling.
Forward, there is a sail locker, followed by the owner’s cabin with a large centerline bed and en-suite head and shower. Aft of that is the large guest cabin to port, featuring a second head and shower, with a second guest cabin to starboard.
Aft of the saloon is a fourth twin-berth cabin, another head, and a washer-dryer. In the cockpit, there is a large varnished fold-out table, a drinks fridge, and comfortable seating, protected by removable mesh side and rear curtains. Additionally, there is a large cockpit locker containing the watermaker. Under the rear deck is a dinghy stowage area accessible via the hydraulic fold-down swim platform.
VERUS AMORE has spent most of her time being lightly cruised in New England. She spent one winter in Florida and another in the Caribbean. Two additional winters were spent stored inside a heated building. The replacement cost would be at least $1.7 million.
Offered to co-brokers on a commission split of 50/50.
We fell in love with the Moody 54 design at the Newport show – where we had gone to buy an anchor! She is perfect for entertaining, and sailing with friends, and also for offshore sailing, when going to the Caribbean. We are now ready to make the next step in our boating career, and buy a powerboat.
