Moody 54DS - One Level Luxury Living

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 drive. This is a safe and seaworthy yacht for the sailor wanting robust performance and true one level living in a blue water cruiser.

Moody 54 Deck Saloon – One Level Luxury Living

Stunning 54 footer

The Moody 54 Deck Saloon is an innovative fusion of the 45 DS and flagship 62 DS.

Design team Judel Vrolijk and Bill Dixon and Peter Hrones have bridged the gap of the deck saloons offering luxury living and performance sailing into a stunning 54 footer.

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

Moody 54 Deck Saloon Stories

Moody 54 “Moody Buoys” Second Sydney to Hobart Race

“For me it was a nice way to finish the year with my team and one of our awesome owners on the boat everyone knows I’m passionate about and love! Great food and company in total luxury.  No wonder our competition was jealous.” Peter Hrones, Windcraft Founder.

Moody 54 DS Charter

The concept of Calypso Expeditions came about over a chat and coffee between two old friends. Rick Assender and Andy Fairclough talked of a desire to open up the world of luxury cruising in idyllic destinations for everyone. And decided that they could do this if they bought a yacht in Europe, sailed it back to Australia and sold passages along the way. Great idea…But first they needed the perfect yacht! Enter the Moody 54 DS and a test sail out on Pittwater.

“It was a beautiful day, the Moody sailed beautifully…and I instantly fell in love with this great boat.” says Rick

They took delivery in July 2015…read about their adventures
