Moodys are legendary for their solid construction, sea kindly performance and offshore passage making capability. The Moody 42, another popular Bill Dixon design, is another great example from this fine builder and capable of taking you to any cruising destination. Its center cockpit design provides a lot of interior volume and living space, including a marvelous centerline master stateroom aft in the boat.  

Our offering, “OFF WATCH” was ordered by her current owner and is hull number 40. Most of her life she has spent in the Chesapeake Bay, away from the tropics and harsh environment that comes with it. Her shoal draft and great ventilation make her an obvious choice for many of the cruising grounds of the East Coast and the Bahamas. 

A few of her standout features include:

  • Bow thruster
  • Max Pro
  • Reverse cycle heat/air conditioning
  • Dual refrigeration and freezer units
  • Mastervolt generator with only 68 hours
  • In-mast furling 

Time marches on and now it is time for her owner to move on to other things. OFF WATCH is a solid platform for her next owners and with a little love will provide them with a great boat for years to come. 

She is well equipped and aggressively price for a quick sale. Call and make an appointment to see her today!


Accommodations (Vessel Walk-Thru)

Forward stateroom: Starting forward, the forward stateroom has an ensuite head. The berth is 80" long x 84" x 18". There is storage beneath the berth on either side and cherry hullside staving. Above the staving there are four lockers on either side, providing plenty of storage for clothing or gear. Additionally, on starboard, there is a tall double doored locker with half hanging and half shelf space. There is a fiddled shelf space above the locker. On port there is a mirror and then entry into the head. Lighting and ventilation is from two reading and one overhead light as well as an overhead hatch. Headroom in here is 6'.

Forward Head: The ensuite head is located on port. As you enter the space, the head is immediately in front of you and has a fiberglass drop-down showering seat. Above and behind the head is a double doored locker. The molded countertop curves around from behind the head to the right and has an integral round sink. There is a locker below the sink and a mirror above. Ventilation and lighting are from an overhead hatch and two overhead lights. Headroom in here is 6'.

Saloon: The saloon features a centerline drop-leaf dinette table; there is drawer and liquor bottle storage beneath. On port there is a C-shaped settee that is 6'8" long. There is a water tank beneath the seat as well as some storage at the aft end; there is also storage behind the seat backs. Immediately behind the seat is a shelf. Above that are a pair of lockers at either end and two fiddled shelves between the lockers. A fixed hullside light is above the upper shelf.

On port is a 5'10" long straight settee, with storage behind the seat backs and tankage beneath. Behind and above the seat is a mirror image of the port side.

The saloon/nav/galley area is well lit and ventilated, with two hatches, two hullside and two house side fixed lights, four opening ports and eight overhead lights. Headroom in the saloon is 6'2".

Nav station: The nav station is on port and is forward facing. The large chart table fits your chartbook with room to spare. There is plenty of storage beneath the lid; below that there is a drawer and a locker facing toward centerline. A smaller locker with a lift-up lid is outboard of the seat. The upholstered nav seat has storage beneath it and there is a full height hanging locker behind it, with access to the mid and master cabins aft of that. Across from the seat is another locker with shelves. Electrical and electronic equipment is located above the table. Headroom here is 6'2". 

Passageway cabin: Located on port and aft of the nav station, this cabin has a mid-level bunk and three storage lockers beneath it; in this case two of them house the air conditioning unit. There is a removable panel at the aft end of the bunk; this opens to shared space with the hanging locker in the master. When this is opened up it makes into a 6'7" x 27" berth. Along the centerline are a pair of full height double doors which provide great access to the machinery space. Lighting and ventilation in here are from an overhead light, a reading light and an opening port. Headroom varies from 5'8" (beneath the cockpit sole) to 6'4".

Galley: The galley is located on starboard and is in the other corridor to the master stateroom. On the centerline side are the two sinks and a generous amount of counter space, with double doored shelf storage beneath them. Aft of the double doors is a tip-out trash bin. There is additional counter room in the pass-thru space beneath the cockpit sole, which is where the microwave is.

Along the hullside, the L-shaped countertop has top loading refrigerator and freezer access. Forward of those is a locker beneath the counter; aft of them is the stove. Beneath the freezer and the stove are drop-front lockers for storage of pots and pans. Above and behind the countertop are four sliding doors with storage behind and four locker doors above. Headroom in here is 6'3".

Aft head: The aft head is located between the galley and the master stateroom on starboard. Entering from the master, there is the sink and head, with a locker above the counter behind the head and another locker beneath the sink. The separate shower stall is next and has a Plexiglass window between the head and the shower and a bi-fold Plexiglass door, keeping the shower out of the walk-thru access to the galley. There is a fiberglass seat molded into the compartment and a shower wand on a height adjustable bar. Headroom in here is 6'2". An opening port provides ventilation and there are two overhead lights.

Master stateroom: The master stateroom features a centerline walkaround queen mattress with a padded headboard. Entry is either through the port corridor aft of the passageway cabin or through the head on starboard. On the port side there is a hanging locker that can also be converted to be the footwell for the passageway cabin if desired. There is fiddled shelf space above it. Next aft along the hull is a fiddled countertop with a lid that lift for lots of cubby storage beneath. On the starboard side there is a hanging locker forward and a shelving locker aft of that, both with a fiddled shelf space above them. There is a changing seat next to the berth with a drawer below it. Across from the foot of the berth is a vanity desk on the forward bulkhead, with jewelry compartments and a dressing mirror above it.

There are two opening ports, one fixed port and an overhead hatch for this space, as well as two overhead lights. Headroom in the master stateroom is 6'1".
