Moody 422 vs Brewer 12.8

I've looked at a couple of Brewers and just looked at a Moody. The Brewer's seem to be generally well thought of here, does anybody have any feedback/experience on how a Moody 422 would compare? The intended use would be extended cruising US East Coast, Bahamas, Caribbean possibly some offshore.

Those are essentially different objectives, as they are both offshore-capable boats. I can't speak to the Moody, but I've been on a few Brewers, and you can reach the man himself at tedbrewer.com. The Brewer 12.8 was discussed in some detail in this thread:

http://www.sailnet.com/forums/buying...er-12-8-a.html

It's like a Whitby 42 with far fewer vices and is an example (I've just seen one) of a designer using real-life feedback to qualitatively improve an older design.

I'm a bit of a Brewer fan, as I am of his former partner Wallstrom, but I couldn't find anything I liked around here. The boat we have, though, has "Breweresque" touches.

I currently own a Moody 46 (2001) and can tell you it is a really well built boat. A year and a half ago I looked at a Brewer 12.8, Hylas 46, an HR 46 (I think it was a 46) and a new Caliber. I ended up buying the Moody and so far have been pleased with the choice. Either way I think you are looking at really good boats each capable of taking good care of you.

Some friends of ours brought a Moody 425 and are currently sailing accross the Indian Ocean heading to the Med. We teamed up with the boat on some coastal cruising off the West Australian coast and the boat had no problems in 30kt+ winds. Nice looking boat inside.
