Cool Change is a Moody 45 Deck Saloon that is now listed exclusively for sale with YOTI on Pittwater. 

Launched new in 2008 for the owner of Team Windcraft and being a world premiere; a huge amount of extra build hours went into making this hull special. She was built using epoxy which later became a very expensive option - epoxy was used to make the hull lighter, stronger and virtually osmosis proof for life. 


Cool Change has since been cared for by her experienced and long term owners who have used her for exactly what designer Bill Dixon had in mind - an easy to handle, very comfortable, larger cruising yacht. 

The Moody 45DS offers single level sailing and living on board from cockpit to saloon with wrap around protected views from the luxurious saloon. The quality Mahogany finish interior is beautiful and practical. The generous owner's cabin positioned forward offers multiple opening hatches and the centre line skylight, writing desk with padded stool and access to the private ensuite with separate shower stall. A second head and shower is to starboard. Two double guest cabins are also positioned on the accommodation level. The layout was chosen with the VIP larger guest cabin to starboard. 

All lines are led aft to electric winches by the twin helms where thefully battened mainsail with almost foolproof 3reef point reefing System from the cockpit. The large protected cockpit with folding table is easily accessed from the dock by the electric drop down boarding or bathing platform. The teak side decks offer protection via a full length bulwark and continuous stainless steel handrail. A retractable anchor arm adds to the clean lines and easily navigable foredeck with sun bed cushions. 

Cool Change was launched with a huge amount of upgrades plus has been intelligently managed and improved on further still. The Yanmar shaft drive engine is the larger 110Hp (upgraded from 75hp) with a three blade Gori folding propeller. Both bow and stern Max Power thrusters are installed. Throttle controls starboard, port and NAV station. The full three refrigerators are installed including the cockpit table unit. Standing rigging was replaced new in just 2018 plus an inner forestay has been added to hoist a storm jib. The fully battened mainsail from Hood with three reef points was new in 2018 and the self tacking headsail was new in 2017. An asymmetric spinnaker with top down furler is included with a custom retractable bowsprit. A 60 L hr water maker has been installed. Electronics by Raymarine include two colour plotters, AIS (transmit and receive) plus two autopilot drive units. The 8KVA Fischer Panda generator is neatly installed in the seriously adequate engine room. Two reverse cycle airconditioning units service all cabins. 

This is a luxurious, comfortable, large cruising yacht which can be easily managed by a couple and will safely take you across oceans or simply offer fuss free day sailing in style.
