Brokers Comments

This Moody 425 is a fantastic boat that has potential as a Blue Water / Long Distance Cruiser. Recognised as one of Bill Dixon’s best designs the Moody 425 has superb living accommodation with a very impressive Owners Cabin with en-suite bathroom. Her saloon provides ample space for all the family with a well appointed forward cabin, separate twin bunked cabin, good size galley, complete with fridge & freezer compartment and even a forward facing nav station. Up top, her decks are in lovely condition and she has a good sized, teak lined cockpit with plenty of seating space as well as a scooped transom that makes for easy convenient boarding. Furthermore, she is fitted with a very powerful 65 horsepower Vetus engine, that was new in 2005 and has been well maintained and looked after by her current Owner and this is linked to a 3 blade bronze folding prop, making her streamlined and efficient through the water.


Moody Yachts have long been known for building solid, well constructed boats. With the 425 Bill Dixon has managed to maximise the available living accommodation without compromise to the handling and performance of the rest of the yacht to produce a boat that has been called by many as a “Modern Classic”. This particular Moody 425 is in good condition and has benefitted from a caring and knowledgeable Owner who has loved and appreciated her. She is currently lying Southampton and is available for viewings through Aspire Boat Sales.
