Moody only built six of these beautiful little ships. "Come True II" has enjoyed constant yet sympathetic updates since she was launched in 1972 keeping her original character. In the early 2000s she was given a six figure refit including at the time new electronics, teak decking, exterior varnishing, maple tongue and groove interior and new upholstery. Since then she has been loved and cruised in equal measure by her current owner who has continued to maintain and upgrade her.
This is an oportunity to purchase a true "gentleman's yacht" and a viewing is highly recomended.
