45' Morgan by Catalina
 
Folks, I've been looking for general info on the 45 center cockpit Morgan that was built by Catalina in the late 80's and early 90's. Can't seem to find much info on this particular model on the web. I noticed one for sale in Southern Cal on Yachtworld that looks interesting. I'm a newbie here so can't post the link, but it's in San Diego and is a 1992.

My wife and I are looking for a center cockpit coastal cruiser that we could comfortably live aboard for extended periods and the pricing of this boat looks attractive. Anyone out there have opinions on this particular model? Known issues? Appreciate any feedback you might have. Links to info or history of model would be helpful as well.

Thanks for the reply. Out of curiousity, where is your boat located?

If you know of the web site pointers for any info, I'd appreciate them. I've actually been able to find very little info on the web about this particular model other than the brochure and a few other bits.

Good evening Drdeyates,
I too looked at a Morgan 45. I found it a most enjoyable boat to sit in and walk around. How does she sail? I am looking for a boat that I will mainly use in Puget Sound and the Inside Passage. However, I am considering a sabbatical year that would allow me to do a Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska, and Northwest trip. Like so many people I want to be able to do it all. If I wanted to go further south or open ocean I do not want to be limited. Is this boat up to this. What upgrades have you added? What do you not like about your boat? I would like to purchase a boat by this time next summer. The Morgan 45 is on my working list but information is hard to come by. Thanks for your time and info.

Greg

Are you talking about the one named Lady Di for 134K ? I was going to travel from Texas to look at it myself. Can you elaborate on why it needs help? I keep my boat in SFCA and would be very interested in your 45 if its still 4 sale.
