I own both

I just bought a 2001 Moody 46. I still own a 2006 Catalina 387 (now for sale) I had been looking for an offshore boat for some time, bought the cat387 for coastal cruising not expecting to find the offshore boat I was looking for that soon after buying the cat. A couple years ago I had sailed a smaller Moody and there is a significant difference between the Catalina and the Moody. Moody is more stable, tracks better, and feels way safer in large seas. Less hull flex and less pounding. Catalina picks up speed faster in light air. I think for coastal cruising the Catalina is a great boat price adjusted but to me the Moody is a big jump up. I have looked long and hard and hope the M-46 turns out to be all I think she will be. Good luck
