1990 Morgan 44 Center cockpit

1990 Morgan 44' Center Cockpit - $109,000

Ready to go! This 1990 Morgan 44' center cockpit sloop (Hull #35, Nelson Merick design) is ready to go blue water cruising. Since 2013, she has made three trips to the Bahamas, one trip to the FL Keys, Dry Tortugas and west coast of FL as well as two trips to Maine. Are you ready to live your dream?

Magnolia has been meticulously maintained with updated systems and electronics for a comfortable and safe cruising lifestyle. She sails beautifully and is well balanced under a brand new mainsail. Her sailing legacy includes winning the Biloxi Challenge in 1991! The center cockpit design provides a secure cockpit topside with a roomy saloon, and aft stateroom with a cozy centerline berth below. The forward V berth has an ensuite head for guests. Uniquely, she has a 8kw generator, small bathtub aft and upgraded interior woodworking. A classic beauty.

Morgan 44's are highly-regarded, solid cruising couples sailboats that can take you wherever you plan to go on the water. We cruised four years, full-time aboard Magnolia from Maine to the Bahamas and owned her for seven years. She has taken good care of us providing us experiences we had only dreamed of. Now she's ready for her next adventure. Where will she take you?!

Any questions? Want more pictures? Please send me a private message.
