Life is an Adventure

After 150,000nm of safe cruising over the past twenty plus years the owner’s of Morgan’s Cloud are retiring from adventure cruising.

This McCurdy and Rhodes 56 is a unique vessel with few peers. She has been maintained, improved and equipped to safely take her crew on multiple month journeys over the past two plus decades.

Despite her size, she is manageable by a couple. Her owners have taken great care to make bluewater sailing easy on the body.

Equipped for modern day cruising with connectivity to shore allows her crew to communicate and manage their on-shore affairs while enjoying the freedom of offshore sailing.

If you want to watch polar bears roam, swim in the Caribbean or head for Cape Horn, this vessel is available in a turn key state. Everything you need to go is onboard – fill the galley with your favorites and go.

A custom build of her pedigree would delay your adventure three to four years and cost perhaps five times as much. Tested and proven, Morgan’s Cloud is ready to leave the dock with only a few days' notice. If "reliability" is a requirement for your offshore passage maker, Morgan's Cloud should be at the top of your list. No one wants to spend their time in port waiting on repairs and parts....proven systems, owner maintainable....thats one of the reason's to choose this boat.

Her construction offers owners complete peace of mind. Aluminum is the premium material for high end European builders. No need to worry about issues like osmosis or wet core, just enjoy distance cruising and exploring. Be it Greenland, Sable Island, or an atoll in the South Pacific, "Morgan's Cloud" has the ability to take her crew places only reached by a few owner operated yachts in her size range. 

Recent survey (2019) available. SAMS pre-purchase survey scheduled for late August 2020.

Her detailed inventory is available on request.

Inside storage has been pre booked for winter 2020/2021 if upcoming commitments require a short delay to your personal adventure.
