Notes

Updated Morgan 45. A collaboration between Morgan Yachts and Moorings. Scheel designed the hull (see Scheel 45). The deck and interior were designed by Moorings.
The first 12 boats off the line were designated as MOORINGS 46. The next 35 were MORGAN 461. There are 114 MORGAN 462's (And finally one built was designated 463).
The 462 had 3,000 lbs less displacement (as well as some other design changes not related to the information above).
The ketch rig above was optional. Sloop rig was standard.
Deep draft option: 6.0'/1.83m
Similar versions were called MORGAN 46, MORGAN CUSTOM 46, MORGAN 463 among others.
Also purchased and/or sold through THE MOORINGS charter company.
Sloop or ketch.

Thanks to Skip Gundlach for clarifying a number issues with Morgan's of this generation and 'billmania' for other corrections.
