Construction

Otaki was built in 1987 by Marine Projects Ltd UK to a Bill Dixon design. Bill Dixon had worked alongside Angus Primrose for several years, when, following the loss of Angus Primrose at sea in 1980, Dixon, at the age of 23, found himself running the newly formed Angus S Primrose Ltd.
The new company successfully took on the existing production boat business, which has formed the basis for a continuing expansion to the present day. All the time enhancing its reputation for design innovation with a steady stream of successful production power and sail designs.
In total, during the past 30 years over 4,500 Moody Yachts have been delivered both in the United Kingdom and throughout the World bringing pleasure and performance to countless thousands of yachtsmen and their families and friends.

GRP hull, deck and superstructure. Fin keel and wheel steering. Non-slip decks and double steel guard wires all round allow for safe movement around the decks. Large deep self draining cockpit. Two large lockers on the transom give plenty of outside storage. Dedicated gas locker to port.
