If you are looking for a large live-aboard or cruising vessel with lots of goodies, this is your boat.  She is in Majuro in the Marshall Islands, 2000 miles WSW of Hawaii, and is ready to sail anywhere.  She comes with almost everything you need – including charts and flags, and even fuel on deck! A bonus is that in November, 2016, the boat was reduced in price for immediate sale to $60,000. 


Moonbird is a 46 foot ketch, and was the last Morgan built before the company was sold to Catalina Yachts, so she ended up with extra thick fiberglass.  She has a modified fin keel and skeg protected rudder, cored decking and a keel stepped mast.  She comfortably sleeps 4 (two in the V-berth and two in the aft stateroom), but can accommodate 6 (2 more on the queen-size pull out settee). She has two heads with Raritan PHII toilets, with stainless sinks.  The aft head has a bathtub/shower and the forward head has a pull out faucet for showers.

The bottom was last painted in Fiji in 2012, so buyer will have to take her back there (or to the Philippines or Thailand) to get the bottom done.  But she has no blisters and there is still plenty of paint on her.  We painted the  hull in 2012, but not the house.  She has turquoise canvas and hard dodger, and C-Cushions in the cockpit to match.

All the electronic equipment is in good shape – including a Lowrance GPS, a Standard Horizon VHF, with AIS and DSC, an ICOM 802 HF Radio a radio with Pactor modem set up to work with the laptop, and a car stereo with CD/USB, a Furuno 24-mile color radar/chart plotter and Interphase forward scanning sonar, CPT autopilot (2012).  There is a new Sunforce wind generator and a Honda 2000 generator on the back deck.  A Walker Bay 10 foot dinghy with tubes and sail kit comes with a brand new Yamaha 5hp 2 stroke outboard!
