About this Moody 422


This owner's version Moody 422 is ideal for long voyages.

Constructed in Kevlar-reinforced polyester, 72 of these well built Moody 442's were produced at the Marine Projects Yard in Plymouth England between 1986 to 1988, built to the designs Bill Dixon (one of the best English naval architects of his generation).

For a boat of this size the aft cabin on the Moody 422 is particularly spacious and has a centerline double with all round access and of course an ensuite heads with hot and cold water. Not too big but with plenty of storage and a safe center cockpit, she makes a great comfortable cruising boat for a couple and occasional guests or a small family. Sail handling is made easy with her all furling rig and she comes well equipped and ready to go sailing. 

The Moody 422 is a safe and stable sloop of 40.67 feet (12.40 meters), beam 13.25 feet (4.04 meters), draft 8 feet (2.44 meters), headroom 7.5 feet (2.29 meters).

The Moody 422 stability is inherent in its semi-heavy displacement. It's very low rolling character and it's ability to never slam in choppy water make it a very comfortable boat at sea and at anchor.
