Not often does a new yacht enter the market that is truly unique and clearly innovative, nudging the enjoyment of the yachting experience even further, if that is possible. The Moody 54 DS is such a yacht, introducing a new concept in monohull design with the salon and cockpit on the same level – referred to as one level living. With skylights that flood the main salon with light, panoramic views all-around, and a huge comfortable cockpit with convertible sunning bed, she offers unparalleled luxury and comfort in a yacht of her size.
MOJEKA is, simply put, a very special boat combining the benefits of a catamaran with the beauty, grace and sailing characteristics of a monohull. Because she is built with public spaces on the main deck and private staterooms below, she actually fits the space of a 64ft boat into a 54ft boat. Hanse, the owner of Moody since ’07, has always been known for high-sided boats. MOJEKA incorporates this design, which translates to extra side windows and well-lit cabins. And when it comes to sailing, she’s extremely easy to handle and provides absolute sailing satisfaction unique to a monohull. With her powerhouse genoa, she takes off like a rocket and her gennaker produces maximum speed in lighter wind conditions. There is no question that MOJEKA will become the class for a new level of sailing.
MOJEKA accommodates 6 guests in 3 very comfortable staterooms. Stepping to the lower level, the spacious master with ensuite bath is located forward. A wonderful large skylight directly above the king size bed creates a great view. The bath has a separate shower stall and electric toilet. The portside VIP cabin is virtually equal to the master in size only with less headroom. It also offers a luxurious and spacious ensuite bath and shower. The third guest stateroom with double bed is located starboard side and shares the day head/shower accessed by steps at the rear of the salon, or the other guest heads.
The main level features a very spacious salon with large skylights and expansive side windows which create a 360 degree panoramic view. The large galley has many smart conveniences, all incorporated into the design so they are hidden and out of the way when not in use. In addition there is a coffee and cappuccino maker. Throughout the yacht one finds such niceties as wood paneled walls with upholstered accent, creating a warm and elegant feel. The safety features incorporated into the design include well-rounded corners, handgrips in all the right places, a very high bulwark, solid steel rails and deck cleats that retract when not in use. MOJEKA is an extremely comfortable and safe choice for just about anyone, offering an unusually high degree of protection, even to children.
If you were wondering whether there is special meaning to the name of this lovely yacht, the answer can be found in a beautiful story in which MOJEKA’S name sources from the writings about Vasco da Gama, the captain-major of four vessels dispatched by the King of Portugal in 1497 to go in search of spices. The party made landfall in South Africa near the Cape of Good Hope. They found the inhabitants of this country to be very pleasant and hospitable, as they spent time with them waiting for a weather window to round the Cape. When they finally made their departure, the natives bid goodbye by shouting Mojeka, Mojeka again and again, which seemed to bestow best wishes for a safe and successful journey. And so you will find the gracious accommodation of a holiday aboard MOJEKA.
