Length 44 ft




Amelia Rose is a beautiful example of the much acclaimed Catalina Morgan 44. The Morgan 44 is  a sleek and swift cruising yacht designed to reward the experienced sailor with outstanding performance while keeping the ships company in comfort and style. Center cockpit design allows for amazing accommodation and privacy.

She has an aft deck that is large enough to accommodate deck chairs so you can enjoy a sunset after a rewarding day of sailing. The large center cockpit was designed with a dual seating arrangement to provide excellent visibility in an atmosphere of comfort and safety. The full enclosure protects you from weather and makes Summer evenings enjoyable by keeping out insects. The interior layout ensures privacy for the owner and guests.

Amelia Rose is simply stunning. She is meticulous inside and out and is ready for her new owners to step aboard and continue the sailing legacy by loving her as the current owners have done for several years.

I have no doubt at all, that the first serious prospective purchaser will indeed snap her up as she has been lovingly maintained and upgraded over the years. She is now perhaps the best kept, prettiest, and toughest of cruiser sailing vessels in the yard. I love this vessel and am convinced you will too.
