The Moody 425 is often considered to be the ultimate cruising Moody of their time, combining luxurious accommodation and a comfortable cockpit in an easily managed size. The centre cockpit layout is perfect for long term or liveaboard cruising, offering two excellent double sleeping cabins and lots of easily accessed storage. This, combined with attractive lines and Moody's excellent reputation for durability and build quality, make them a very attractive choice for bluewater and long distance sailing. Maximo benefits from many significant upgrades including a larger lightly used modern engine, hydraulic bow thruster and anchor windlass, remote start generator, diesel heating, holding tank, and recent standing rigging (new 2019). Only for sale due to her owner's plans changing, she is in need of some recommissioning and general maintenance but represents an amazing opportunity to buy a very well specified example of these versatile yachts at an attractive price!
