Moody 44

Very interested in a Moody 44CC shoal draft for full time live aboard cruising. So far I can't find specs on hull and deck construction. I assume the hull is not cored. Are the decks balsa cored or synthetic such as divinycell? Should I be impressed with the Lloyds Cert? I've heard that having the cert doesn't mean the specs were necessarily followed. Appreciate any knowledgeable input.

Re: Moody 44

Nice boat. Designed by Bill Dixon, high quality construction by Marine Projects in Plymouth. Fully cored hull and deck - I believe this is already the encapsulated balsa block period, which is a very good method. This is middle period Dixon, prior to the raised salon designs. Very high sailing performance for a cruiser - check out the handicaps. Generally a good choice.
