Catalina Morgan 440 Manufacturer Provided Description
The 440 combines the rugged offshore features of Morgan with the comfort, ergonomics and style of a Catalina. In order to fully enjoy the view in the 440, the main cabin sole is raised to provide great visibility from the large, wide, cabin windows. All cruisers want speed under sail, easy motion and sure, predictable handling characteristics. The hull form of the 440 is conservative and sea-kindly and designed not to pound when going to weather or powering into seas. Offering the stability of a very low center of gravity, the 440 hull is stiff and comfortable. Representing the ideal cruising shape, the stem is raked to prevent damage when deploying or retrieving the anchor. The additional flare and buoyancy forward means dryer decks.
