1. Info Ruby Rose

Ruby Rose is in England to Plymouth in one of the factories built yacht Marine Projects (a Moody 419 of AH Moody & Son Limited). She was launched in 1986 as a jubilee ship (with construction number 3200 as 100th 42-footer from the mold, come in separate colors of the hull: white with red bands). The first owner was Commodore of the Moody Owners Association in the United Kingdom and the yacht - KAMECA called - did the first years mainly as a lead ship in club competitions. In January 1993 the ship was in the hands of the current owner.
The name Ruby Rose is well thought out: A bigger yacht - as we found that in 1993 - look out of place double English name. That's fancy and does justice to the luxury of the design of the Moody-419. The ship is in the U.K. built and roots you should respect. The English distinction is also reflected in an initial alliteration (similar Rolls Royce).
Ruby refers to the jubilee status of the ship with the red instead of the usual blue bands on the fuselage. And Rose refers to the sail sign of Moody's (a compass). Our children Ruben and Rose recognize themselves in the ship's name.
Ruby Rose is a sharp and heavy duty polyester tour yacht with a center cockpit, built under Lloyds certified and suitable for coastal and ocean sailing. The performance measurement gives the figures SA-disp 16-48 and 223-41 Displ LWL (compared to ships Westerly Sealord, Oyster 406 and Najad 39 a Moody 419 performs better). In Holland the SW-factor amounts to 95.
Ruby Rose begins to rumble from good force 5. Very close to the wind sail (below 37 degrees is not possible), but also directly to the wind sailing the performance of Ruby Rose is moderate. With a nod in the sheet and especially at half windward Ruby Rose is extremely in her element. From inside Ruby Rose is very spacious and cozy.
