The Morgan 43 is a Nelson-Marek design center cockpit, sloop rig with clean lines and a surprisingly nice turn of speed. Its rig is exceptionally beefy and the construction and fit is well above average. The interior is well laid out with lots of storage, a dedicated true nav station, large work bench across from the engine room, relatively spacious engine room, and a very roomy aft cabin with en-suite head.

Originally a Great Lakes (fresh water) boat, here is a well-cared for, recently upgraded example of the popular Nelson Marek designed Morgan 43 performance cruiser. Owner’s life plans have unexpectedly changed resulting in a unique opportunity to own a quality yacht ready to cruise today. This yacht is “bone dry” hatches have been reworked/replaced within the past 2 years, all port lights have recently been replaced with New Found Metals SS opening ports and all chain plates have been pulled inspected and re-bedded. There is new canvas throughout and new custom made Outland ridged hatch covers installed.

Re: 1986 Catalina Morgan 43

Couple2sail,
Thanks for the reply. I am a retired Navy Captain and unfortunately the admiral has suffered some health issue that are going to prevent her from making anymore offshore passages. My Morgan is in excellent condition throughout. I am sure she will meet expectation of the most particular prospective buyer. The boat is located on the Chesapeake Bay in southeastern Virginia.I am open to reasonable offers. Please send an email to CaptJBurdon@live.com and I would be happy to send you pictures, inventory, specs and answer any questions you may have.
