starret jenks 45 Morgan

The starret Jenks 45 is the most undervalued blue water ocean cruiser on the market. She is a well built hull designed specifically for long ocean passages and anyone that has one knows how well she handles the big swells and strong winds. She is a great boat for those wanting to learn the ropes on a long 45 footer and I would recomend anyone buying a starret to go for it. You will now be disapointed. Her 11' bean makes her faster than any other cruising yacht on the market. I have a starret and like many other starret owners, i would rather keep her than trade her in for the fat clumsy slower
14' beamers that have litle control or manuevarability. Don't let weekend sailors used to sail along warm safety coastlines mislead you. if you want to cross any ocean in any condition, the Starret is the boat I would recomend.
