2000 Moody 42 Center Cockpit

Ventura, CA


The Moody 42 Center Cockpit is a high quality, blue-water cruiser. With two cabins inside, and a well-protected cockpit above, she is capable of crossing oceans in comfort and safety through all kinds of weather. 

Originally built in the UK, this boat has crossed the Atlantic, and cruised the Caribbean, where the current owner bought her. Since then, he has considerably upgraded the boat, before bringing it across the country to CA. Now he wants something bigger, so Adagio is for sale.
