Moby was built in 1971 in Hamble Shipyard, UK for the Ocean Youth Trust (see below for link).  Moby is one of eight boats built to a Robert Clark design. She is built of composite laminate over 1-inch Airex core width a steel structural cage integral to inner laminates. Was overbuilt for her preciuos cargo of 16 youth and captain and mate. Classic lines, long and lean she powers to weather well. At 20 knots on a reach will sail 10 plus knots and be comfortable. Even, in light air, she moves well. A 48-inch wheel and large quadrant make time at the helm a joy. Has Coast Guard documentation and 12-passenger waiver.
