1985 Morgan Catalina Nelson/Marek located in Georgia for sale

45' Morgan Catalina Nelson/Marek


Description: Nelson/Marek, one of sailings most recognized design teams was commissioned by Morgan Yachts to design their fastest 45 footer and the end result was the Morgan Nelson/Marek 454.

This boat is unique in that she is fast and has superb accommodations all in one. One of her best features is her shoal draft with centerboard. When the centerboard is up, her draft is only 5'6", which makes it easy for her to gunk hole around. With her board down, her draft extends to over 8' which makes her safe and very stable offshore. Her sugar scooped transom makes her easy to board from the dinghy.

'Vonyachtski' has been loved and maintained by her current owners for 5 years, and her previous owners for 15. She gets hauled each spring and is laid up for hurricane season. Her engine is freshwater flushed after each haul out and seasonally is covered with shadecloth, and her canvas and sails removed for storage. Oil and filters changed every 100 hours. She comes complete with many extras, including many spare boat parts and is currently undergoing her normal maintenance and a few upgrades.

'Vonyachtski' is now being offered for sale as we move on to our next great land adventures, your gain is our loss. Let this be your opportunity to own a well loved, quality vessel at a great price!
