|Deck & Hull Equipment|
Plankton's hull is painted with Interlux Perfection two part epoxy providing a durable, low maintenance and beautiful hull. Below the waterline is modified full keel and skeg hung rudder. The bottom is regularly repainted with ablative paint that overlies a protective epoxy base. The topside features a ketch rig, two keel stepped masts with one spreader each, standing rigging that is led to external chainplates, three large and four smaller hatches and 14 oversized ports, and two stern deck lockers. The radar dome and wind generator are mounted on the mizzen mast. The weather station and Windex are mounted on the main mast. Deck cleats and chocks are aluminum and robust and up to the task. The chocks are mounted in the raised unvarnished teak toerail which surrounds the deck. The stanchions and safety lines are all in good condition. Because the shrouds are led outboard to the hull sides the side decks are clear and easily traversed without having to do gymnastics to get around the shrouds.

The Morgan 462 was the last and finest of the line of older Morgan 46s designed and built by Charlie Morgan. The 462s were aimed at the blue water cruising market and are well built, having a solid fiberglass hull and deck with a plywood core. This boat currently lies in Greece and is easily accessible from Athens. If you have ever dreamed of sailing your own boat thru the Greek islands, this is your chance. The owners have finished their sailing plans since crossing the Atlantic in 2010 and cruising throughout the Mediterranean for several years. She's ready to go and you could be sailing the islands this spring and summer!
The hull design is an excellent bluewater design, having heavy displacement, a modified full keel design, and a protected skeg hung rudder. It is also a center-cockpit design permitting crew comfort, good all around visibility, and a large owner's stateroom and head aft. The boat is ketch rigged to enable it to carry maximum or minimum sail plans and sail areas and to be manageable by a short-handed crew or couple. The interior design is spacious and sensible, with galley and navigation area amid ships, a large salon with U shaped settee and a straight settee. Further forward is the guest cabin with V berth and private head. Amidships under the cockpit, is the spacious engine room with a Perkins 4-154 62 HP diesel engine. There is a spacious and well lit passageway leading aft on the port side with a good sized pilot-berth and lots of built in storage. The passageway leads to the spacious master cabin, with its own private companionway to the stern deck, and a private head. The master cabin head has a vanity, manual head, bathtub and shower. Tankage in the 462 is very adequate, carrying 78 gallons of fuel and 200 gallons of fresh water, as well as solar and wind power.
The boat has tons of storage space throughout, in various easily accessed lockers, cabinets, and drawers. At the bow is a robust dual anchor platform and windlass. At the transom is a teak swim platform and a swim ladder. She comes with good sails, a 120% genoa, a new fully battened main with lazy jacks, and a mizzen, as well as a storm headsail.
You will find this Morgan 462 to be an excellent liveaboard boat, whether you are cruising or dockside. She has 110 shore power but is also fitted with four 220V bulkhead jacks for use at the docks in Europe. She is fitted with a Captain's navy canvas bimini, a 40ml Strataglass dodger and a wide selection of canvas covers, awnings and shades on deck, along with matching navy trimmed fenders. Her hull and cockpit have been coated with the finest Interlux Perfection epoxy. Her interior teak and bulkheads have been varnished with a hand rubbed finish. She is very clean, comfortable and fresh.
