1994 Catalina Morgan 38 located in South Carolina for sale

38' Catalina Morgan 38

South Carolina

Description: In the early 90s Catalina purchased Morgan, and this model 38 is basically the model of boat that was later renamed as the Catalina 380. Catalina continued with this layout with good reason: It is a very comfortable and reliable boat for cruising and/or at anchor.
The center cockpit puts you high above the water, and with the in-mast mainsail, you never need to leave the cockpit to work any lines or halyards. The dodger and Bimini have screens and awnings to keep bugs and rain out while at anchor (all new). The helm is well equipped with Garmin Chartplotter and instrument displays (programable: depth, wind, speed, etc.), VHF with DSC and AIS receive (all new) and Richie compass and Autohelm auto pilot. A dock box at the stern provides extra storage and St. Croix davits are ready to carry your dingy (all new). The Magma grill cooks your dinner, and the twin solar panels (160 watts each) keep your batteries well charged (all new). If you need more power, the engine has a 160-amp high-output alternator (new).
The salon is very spacious with a full-length settee on both the port side and the starboard side. A large table mounts to the floor or stores away in the v-berth. Enjoy the flat screen TV receiving off air signals from the Glomex antennae at the top of the mast (with amp below) or from a CATV connection (all new). The Dometic 16,000 BTU heat/ac provides comfort throughout the boat (new). The nav station has another Garmin chartplotter to see what is going on without having to go to the helm (new) It also has the solar panel controller, high-output alternator controller, stereo (AM/FM/CD/Aux), VHF with DSC and AIS receive, TV antennae amp, battery monitor, charger/rectifier controller (all new) along with the battery switch, tank indicators, and windlass switch.
The galley has two ice boxes with a Dometic evaporator/freezer coupled with a digital thermometer/controller (both new), a LP stove/oven with new LP controller/monitor/alarm, a double sink with Seaward water filter faucet for extra safe drinking water (new). Additional teak drawers, do

Water connection with pressure reducer*. Can be used for water supply on boat (similar in function to an RV hookup) and/or filling all onboard water tanks. Water tanks can be filled via deck connections as well. However, using the water connection enables filling all three tanks without moving the supply hose, and it uses the same lines as when using on board water making it a much more convenient and sanitary method of filling the tanks.
