General Details

Are you ready to escape and CRUISE?  If so, make sure to look at this boat.  She is a well built, time tested and cruise equipped.  What makes a boat CRUISE EQUIPPED? How about a solid hull, reliable engine, gps/chartplotter, radar, autopilot, ssb w/modem, water maker, wind generator and solar panels.  This makes for a vessel that can cruise safely, communicate effectively and redundent (which comes in handy when you're in those gunkholes that are off the beaten path!).

 She has been well maintained and has earned the right to have an excellent reputation! 

If you are READY, so is she!


461 Morgans were designed for small families or two couples (with room to accomodate additional friends occassionally).   She has lots of deck area being a center cockpit for everyone to enjoy the sail.  A large, very comfortable cockpit has seating for everyone.  This one even has a custom designed hard top (with full enclosure) to keep everyone cool and dry in the shade.   As you go below, you enter a roomy salon with the galley on starboard and the nav station on port.  Going forward you have a nice settee on port and a u-shaped settee (with a custom drop down table) on starboard.  Forward of this area is a nice sized stateroom with v-berth and a head/shower on the starboard side.   Going aft, down the port side past the nav station is a passageway that serves as storage and a work area.  This provides entry into the owners cabin which is aft and has a full sized berth and full head/shower ensuite with tub. Aft head has had new Corian counter tops and bath back splash updated. This stateroom also has hatch access to the deck area. Cruise Air 16K BTU Reverse Cycle A/C w/SMX digital controller
The galley is a u-shaped galley with custom Corian counter tops.  Ice boxes were completely rebuilt and foam insulated to make the Adler/Barbour refrigeration (two large compartments, 1 freezer and 1 refrigerator, both top loading) work great.  The owners tell me they can even keep ICE CREAM on board.  If you have sailed before, you will know that that is a TREAT! 4 Burner Princess Propane Stove/Oven Pressurized fresh water 110 Vac Water Heater Village Water Maker
