The Morgan designed Starrett & Jenks 45 aft cockpit is one of the most undervalued blue water ocean cruisers on the market.  She is a well built hull designed for long distance offshore racing yet well fit as a fast, solid and secure cruiser capable of long ocean passages.  "Nirvana" has a full lead keel with a cut-away forefoot providing directional stability in testing conditions.  The absolutely beautiful interior was built out by a well experienced South African marine carpenter with joinery executed to a very high standard.  Beautiful Cabinetry with lots of drawers 'n closets for storage. Current owner of 30 years!  Shows very well.
