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...Read More

Despite what it looks like, Seal is nowhere near the Uliga Dock. Thanks Hilary! Webmaster...Read More
By KAREN EARNSHAW One of the more marvelous aspects of being a member of the Mieco Beach Yacht Club is that you can use your card to gain entry to the world’s yacht clubs, including the friendly Waikiki Yacht Club in Honolulu, Hawaii. Just across the way from the Ala Moana shopping center, the WYC has a great bar that looks out over the club’s marina and well-appointed dining tables both inside and outside on the patio. Vice Commodore Cary Evarts and I were recently in Honolulu for a week, so we stopped by the club and met James, their...Read More
The weather looked lousy, but Figment and Seal were up for the challenge and took club members and friends to Enemanet Island on Saturday (December 5). Turned out to be a great decision, with the clouds parting and sunshine coming through … for most of the time anyway! The crews included a group from the volunteer teaching program WorldTeach, which is based out of Harvard University. Following a great lunch, a bunch of us did the grand tour around the island, with teacher Smitty winning the prize of finding the most useful item: A sleeping...Read More
