Moody have always had a great reputation although in later years before the buy out, their quality control , particularly regarding interior fitout was a bit suspect given their price.

My favourite of that series was the 425 which was a bit later than the 422. Very similar boat except for the extra couple of feet. Suffer from the usual shortcomings of centre cockpit boats and could do with a bit more water capacity. Not sure about the 422s but most 425s have in mast furling which I personally don't like.
Hi Kent. I've owned a Moody 422 for 10 years (which is for sale). I would be happy to answer any questions you may have about 422's. I would like to point out that there is no basically no difference in the length between a 422 and a 425, the changes are primarily in the cabin. I'm not trying to sell you my boat, since it's located in Malaysia. My 422 has in-mast furling...you might give this feature a second thought unless you're a racer. Take care,Bob
