In the used boat market, sometimes referred to as MORGAN 454, NELSON-MAREK 454, etc.
Morgan model names in this size range are especially confusing and inconsistent.
(This model was also advertised as the MORGAN 46, even though there was another of the same name, a cruising ketch, designed by Henry Scheel and also built by Morgan Yachts.)

This design was 'recycled' into a number of other models including a center cockpit version, MORGAN 43 (1985).
After the demise of Morgan Yachts, a later, significantly modified version was built by Catalina Yachts.
