If you've ever dreamed of sailing to exotic places, watching dolphins dance along your bow, or anchoring near your own private island, now's your chance! S/V Pipe Muh Bligh, a 2005 Catalina Morgan 440 Deck Salon, is home to her original owners - a full-time cruising couple who sailed from Kemah, Texas, to explore the U.S. East Coast, Bahamas, and the Eastern Caribbean.
"Pipe" is the ideal boat for a couple, but has plenty of room for children or visitors. She has the solid, stable hull of a Morgan, coupled with light, bright interiors that Catalina yachts are known for. With a roller-furled jib and in-mast-furled main, Pipe can easily be sailed by one or two people - all without having to leave the safety of the cockpit.
Pipe's cockpit is one of the roomiest seen on a monohull of her size, offering plenty of seating room for happy hours, potlucks, or more intimate gatherings. Below deck, the multi-level deck salon design, along with NEW faux leather cream upholstery, creates a bright, open living space. Enjoy spectacular views through Pipe's large fixed windows from the raised dining area, or put your feet up in one of the two recliners. You'll find plenty of Corian-covered counter-space in Pipe's galley, along with a refrigerator/freezer, a 3-burner stove/oven (all replaced in 2018), and a microwave.
Whether it's nap-time or "cruiser midnight", enjoy a great sleep in Pipe's V-berth or aft stateroom. Each has a comfy, inner-spring mattress, and the large hatch over the V-berth's centerline bed lets you enjoy the cool Caribbean breezes. The V-berth has a private bathroom, while the aft stateroom shares a bathroom with the salon/galley area (both include a sink, shower, electric toilet, and storage locker).
With a 12-volt Spectra water-maker, a 7.6 kW Westerbeke genset, a D-400 wind generator, and three 275-watt solar panels, Pipe Muh Bligh is cruising-ready. Pipe is currently anchored on the south coast of Grenada, W.I.,an ideal place to begin your cruising adventure. Why spend months "easting" to get to Paradise? Pipe Muh Bligh is already there!
