 Morning Star is professionally maintained by a local boat yard.  If it needs anything it is taken to the yard and they take care of it.  She just came out of the yard on 5 July 2013.  She had new bottom paint put on (no blisters) and all systems were checked and/or serviced by the yard.  This boat is turnkey and ready to go.


This H-40 has a desirable layout below with a guest cabin forward (V-berth) with its own head to starboard and hanging locker and clothing storage to port. Moving aft from the V-berth is the main salon with an L-shaped dinette to starboard and a bench settee to port. There is stowage space below the settees and in cabinets above the seat cushions. The dinette table has a folding leaf that allows for easy passage in the salon area plus the entire table lowers and converts to additional sleeping for guests.  Aft of the salon to starboard houses a redesigned galley with a double sink, refrigeration, CNG stove with oven, and numerous drawers and cabinets. To port is the navigational station with AC/DC electrical panel. This redesign includes all teak doors on the cabinets and lockers. Between the galley and the nav station is the companionway and directly aft of the nav station is the master head. There are two entrances to the aft cabin, one through the master head and one aft of the galley. There is a centerline marine queen bed in the master stateroom, hanging lockers and storage cabinets on each side of the bed. The Yanmar diesel engine is conveniently located beneath the companionway stairs and is accessible for maintenance and service from all 4 sides. Both guest and master heads have pressure hot and cold water systems.
