    Went to see a Moody 376. Lovely boat but at 6'2" not enough headroom considering I want to live aboard. Is the Moody 425 any better regarding headroom?
    Thanks

    Hi Duncan,
    We own Summer Wine a 425 and I am 6' 3" tall and don't have a problem with the headroom.
    Best Regards Barry

    Hi Duncan,

    At 6' 2", while headroom is generally sufficient on a M425, you will have to duck yo get through any of the doorways down below. I have to, and I'm only 5' 8". I usually bang my head once or twice at the beginning of each season and that's sufficient to relearn the issue .... until next season. I guess if you're planning to live aboard, you won't have an off season to forget about it.
