When one walks below decks of the Morgan 45 , the first impression is one of warmth and luxury. Forward you have a large V berth stateroom with a centerline double berth, a settee for dressing and hanging locker / drawers/ and locker space for storage. Natural light and ventilation is provided by a large opening hatch. The forward stateroomshares a dual access to the head, with the salon. The salon has two long settees port and starboard with pilot berths behind each settee. Center line salon table with fold down leaf. Port of the companionway is a large galley with access to the aft stateroom. The aft stateroom has a queen in-line pedestal berth with ample storage along both sides. The head for the aft stateroom is currently a work shop, which can be converted back to a full wet head. Adjacent to the galley , to starboard is a Navigators station with ample room to install future electronics.
