Most Moody's will out sail a similar sized Pearson, Endeavor,Tayana, etc. as a general statement. They sail well. That's assuming good sails
, crew etc. When we were out cruising we were faster than most other boats our size, but I'm sure having good sails
and being an ex-racer helped. As an FYI my Moody 47 has a PHRF rating around 106 as I recall
compare that to most other 47 ft. cruising boats and I'm 20+ sec/mi faster. Hope that helps... it's one of the reasons we bought her.
