Going forward and down the steps to the living area the bulkheads are refreshingly light and airy. To port is the guest stateroom, which includes a single upper berth and a lower berth that features a slide out arrangement for easy conversion into a double berth. In the guest stateroom the outboard forward locker was deleted to give more room forward for sitting or pulling on pants. Access aft to the engine room is provided by a large gasketed Diamond SeaGlaze door that minimizes sound. The guest stateroom is finished with off-white Formica laminate and teak trim and includes port lights and takes in additional fresh air from the forward dorade. This room is air-conditioned and heated as well
Hallway & Head
The hallway is carpeted and an easy passageway to transit. Across the hallway from the guest stateroom is a large head that includes a Raritan Elegance head, Corian counter top, modern style sink, modern faucet and a separate shower stall. The large shower is shrouded with a home-sized clear shower door and inside an adjustable Grohe shower fixture and built in seat with teak slats makes this a great area to refresh. The head area off-white Formica with teak trim. The sole has been replaced with the same tile selected for the galley.
Stepping up into the forward master stateroom you will find an ideal sleeping area with a large queen sized island berth. This room is a testament to quality teak joinery with abundant lockers and drawers including two large cedar lined hanging lockers. The berth is hinged to lift up allowing access to a large storage area beneath, which includes house batteries and a separate Lifeline 8-D battery that powers the windlass, and the new bow thruster. There are several through hulls, the bow thruster motor and the entire below bed area is well lighted by dome lights. And, you can easily get to the cavernous chain locker via a double door locker all the way forward. For light and ventilation you have an overhead hatch, dorade vent, opening port lights on the hull sides. The mattress has been recently upgraded to a memory foam mattress. The current owner has installed bedding hold down latches as seen on the later model 40's. New Dometic Heat/AC installed installed 11/2019 servicing Master stateroom, guest stateroom hallway and head areas.
Entering in to the salon through the watertight and double dogged commercial strength Diamond SeaGlaze door you will be impressed with her spacious salon. The interior is beautifully appointed with lavish teak woodwork. The salon features a permanent teak hi-lo and sliding table dinette table. A flat screen television and Surround Sound DVD player is housed in this area. Bookshelves and magazine racks are also ideally positioned. The interior is tastefully decorated with resilient off white Ultra suede and NEW close cropped carpeting installed November 2019. This entire aft area is ideal for dining, entertaining and relaxing. A Fusion/DVD stereo system and Marine Air air-conditioning/ heating system help maintain a pleasing ambiance. Forward and to starboard is a magnificent and practical bank of four gliding drawers to supplement storage. The interior is carpeted for ease in maintenance and helps create a more at-home ambiance. The upholstery is upgraded Ultra suede fabric for all of the cushions. Another nice touch was the addition of a drop slide window and custom screen in the salon door, and screens on the windows. There are custom blinds for privacy. The salon transitions into an elegant galley that includes many brand name appliances. Outboard is a Seaward LPG stove and oven. The faucet is a pull out type for rinsing dishes, made by Grohe. Additionally, a Seagull IV water purifier has been installed. Refrigeration/Freezer is provided by a stand up Norcold unit with teak panels. A Breville convection oven has also been installed and proven quite handy at anchor. Tile has been installed for the galley and head floors - which is attractive and easy to clean.
The pilothouse is directly above the hallway and boasts all of the necessities required for operating the vessel from this protected command station. All of the windows are tempered glass commercial grade by Diamond SeaGlaze. Outboard on each side of the pilothouse you can walk out to the Portuguese bridge through heavy Dutch doors. The forward dash cabinetry is teak and includes charcoal colored Formica instrument panels. There is a lift up chart table to port. Leona has had navigation electronics re-fit, such as Simrad AP 44 autopilot. Engine controls are Morse throttles on varnished teak blocks for both the main and wing engines. The bow thruster joystick and windlass remote toggle are ideally positioned. The pilothouse is all varnished teak and the sole is covered with varnished teak and holly. Broker states in perfect condition (See photo). The pilothouse is air-conditioned and heated for added comfort. The ships electrical distribution panel is hinged for access to wiring and each wire is labeled. Aft in the pilothouse is a comfortable bench seat with a nice teak table so that you can cruise comfortably sitting down. Behind the seat is a cushioned watch berth. Nav/Com included is as follows.
Leaving the pilothouse and heading aft you go up a few steps to the boat deck. This area is dominated by the mast and boom, which serves multiple purposes including; securing the dry stack exhaust, and operating as the dinghy davit. The boom is equipped with electric boom winches, which serve to function as a dinghy davit. Morgan has a hinged mast base with minimal wiring into the mast so that when doing the Great Loop it takes about 30 minutes to lower the rig for low bridge clearances. Custom sunshade to cover the entire back deck that easily stores away when not used. Custom fitted canvas for all exterior windows that quickly snap on/off for ease of install and removal.
