If I were considering a Morgan 45, I would also seriously consider a Gulfstar, a Tayana 42, or a Catalina 42. The Tayana is a super boat and I believe they are very undervalued. The C42 has a very passionate following and you will find them everywhere including a very large owners group. Gulfstars are flat out built like tanks, though depending on whether it was made on a Monday or Friday may make a big difference in the boat. On teh cheaper side, you could consider an old Irwin too... but tehy are really hit-miss, with some of tehm junk and some of them really undervalued. Be very cautious about blisters on the Irwins.

I am not negative on the Morgan 45's. I have been on a couple. It just happened the ones I was on were rode hard and put up wet and it turned me off of them a bit. I am sure there are super examples too... I just have never seen one - and boats like the Tayana and C42's are better values.

These are my opinions only and not those as a Tech editor.
