Brian Lidell has owned a few yachts over the years. He looked at a number of new yachts for sale before choosing the Moody 45 AC Classic…
‘Having had four new boats in the past – this time we were looking for something different. We wanted something with character – not something white and plasticy looking.
We looked at idea of an old classic but realised we didn’t have the skill level to maintain a yacht like this. Then Bob Vinks introduced us to the idea of the 45 AC Classic… and we’d found what we were looking for.
