Notes

Also sold as MORGAN CUSTOM 46.
The designer, Henry Scheel, was also the builder of the original molds for this yacht at his company in Maine in the early 1970's. (Sheel had collaborated with Charles Morgan on a number of the earlier Morgan's.)
The molds later came into the possession of Morgan Yachts, where they were used for a number of years with various modifications to build a number of models similar to the one shown here.
The Morgan nomenclature is especially confusing in the 45-46 foot range. Names were reused for entirely different models.
Boats very similar to this one were sold as the MORGAN 45/46 (SCHEEL) the MORGAN 461, MORGAN 462, MORGAN 463 and possibly others.
(There is at least one other MORGAN 46, (usually referred to as MORGAN 454-5, designed by Nelson/Marek and also built by Morgan Yachts.)
Available as sloop or ketch.
(See MORGAN 462 for other details.)
Thanks to Skip Gundlach for sharing his knowledge of Morgan's of this generation.
