The jury responsible for choosing European Yacht of the Year (EYOTY) announced the decision for this year’s nominations over the past few days. The Moody 54 Deck Saloon (DS), presented for the first time earlier this year, is one of the nominees in the Luxury Cruiser category.

Moody 54 Ds Nominated For European Yacht Of The Year

“Five years ago, the Moody 45 DS received lots of recognition in the European Yacht of the Year and narrowly missed out on winning in its category,” says Jochen Rieker, editor-in-chief of the German magazine YACHT and chairman of the EYOTY jury. “The 54 DS promises even more comfort thanks to its more variable layout and impressed in the initial tests with its good sailing characteristics. These features meant that it easily qualified for nomination in the preliminary round.”

The closed deck saloon is equally suited to both hot and colder climates, as it offers protection from wind, weather and sun.
