THIS YACHT HAS NEVER BEEN CHARTERED!!!
The Nelson/Marek Morgan 45’ is not to be mistaken with any other Morgan…it is TRULY a unique and rare boat, as only 29 of these incredible racer/cruisers, were ever built.
“Tinaca” is a TWO OWNER yacht, which speaks to the the confidence in this yacht, both in the quality of construction and performance, and the enjoyment she has brought to those two owners over the last 33 years!!!
She's especially spacious and very comfortable and has been designed, by the renown team of Bruce Nelson & Bruce Marek …. Masters of creating better sailing characteristics in their boats, than any available at the time.
In SOUTHWINDS Magazine, November 2008 issue, author and sailor, Harmon Heed, wrote in his review of the Morgan 45, "BIG!", "Fast", "Beautiful", "Strong!", "Sea-kindly!" “Those are terms inevitably used when describing the Nelson/Marek designed Morgan 45 Sloop. I have personally e crewed on the Morgan 45, ‘HALLELUJAH’ for three years and personally, I think they're understatements."
Known both for winning more than their share of ocean races through the years, the Morgan 45 Nelson/Marek is also known by experienced racers and cruisers alike, as having one of the most comfortable, voluminous and luxurious interiors…just simply a wonderful liveaboard cruising yacht which affords spacious storage lockers, a professional Navigators station that has room for a full array of navtronics, and a large liveable main saloon and staterooms!!!
In The Owner’s Words:
We purchased the boat in 2009 from the original owner on Lake Erie. Over the next month we sailed it back to St. Joseph, Michigan where we began updating the equipment with the intention of living on board while traveling to the Bahamas. For four years we sailed on Lake Michigan and worked to add the equipment and features we wanted. We made numerous crossings to Chicago and Milwaukee and one circumnavigation of Lake Michigan.
For our final upgrades we moved the boat up the Lake to Charlevoix, Michigan for the winter of 2012/2013. We were able to leave on the 4th of July, 2013 and headed for Lake Superior. We spent the next two months cruising the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Seaway to Montreal then back to Oswego, NY where we entered the Oswego canal. The day we entered the dam at lock #13 on the Erie canal was closed for “Serious Damage” from scouring around the center piling. The Erie was closed for 3 weeks and it took us 24 days to travel from Oswego, NY to Waterford, NY.
We then traveled down the Hudson stopping at Ossining for some train/bus trips into the city and to White Plains. From Ossining we traveled down the New Jersey coast making several overnight stops and then on to Norfolk, VA where we stopped for several weeks to visit friends.
While there we had new canvas, a Bimini and full “glass type” enclosure added. From Norfolk we took the ICW all the way to Riviera Beach and Lake Worth/Palm Beach Inlet and our Florida home port.
We left the boat in Riviera Beach for the Holidays and wintered in the Keys and Bahama’s. We spent two summers traveling up the coast to Maine then back south stopping in Norfolk for maintenance and friends. Our trips North and South were mainly outside along the coast after the first Southward trip. We made much faster time and experienced “life at sea” for extended periods.
Our final trip was to New Orleans. We visited John Pennakamp State Park, the West Coast of Florida for the first time and stayed in Panama City for three weeks mainly due to weather. We met family in New Orleans staying at the South Shore Marina for the week. The return leg was to Gulfport, MS for fuel and water then on South making for the Dry Tortugas. We passed North of the Tortugas in total darkness and rounded up for Key Largo and Pennakamp. The return trip took 5 days at sea during which we saw zero vessels crossing the Gulf of Mexico.
We’ve had a wonderful 7 years with TINACA and have really enjoyed the 15,000 + miles we’ve logged during that time. Unfortunately due to some physical limitation I’m beginning to incur we have decided to move ashore and enjoy retirement in other ways."

Headroom is 6’10” or better, throughout the boat and storage capacity can only be noted as “incredible”. Beautiful Burmese teak interior joinery throughout, lockers have teak doors and the glossy varnished cabin sole in the main living quarters is teak and holly, upholstery is a cream color background with tan and lilac pattern.
“TINACA” sleeps up to ten people in accommodations with the forward cabin for 2, large owners aft stateroom cabin for 2 and main salon with pullout berths both port and starboard, plus 2 pilot berths. She features private accommodations for two couples in separate cabins, and there are 2 heads aboard.
The guest cabin is most forward, starting with access to a large chain locker by way of a double opening teak door, followed by the forward guest stateroom, which was designed with your guests in mind, and incorporates a good sized, centerline bed with a curved seat to port, shelves outboard, both to port and starboard and storage under the V-berth. To starboard, there is a drawer and locker under the shelf and to port is a large hanging locker. There are ash batten strips outboard and the owner has installed an ingenious fishing rod holder on the port side. There is a large opening hatch overhead.
A louvered teak door separates the forward guest V-berth from the rest of the boat for a truly private cabin.
Next aft to starboard is the forward guest head, ventilated with an opening port and weatherproof mushroom type ventilator. There is access by way of TWO doors, one to the forward V-berth, the other to the main salon.There is a vanity with large mirror over, hot and cold pressure water, storage under the oval S.S. sink and also outboard behind the head. Outboard and above the head is a “rolling door” with large capacity storage behind. You will note in the photos, a beautiful Teak shower grate on floor.
Directly across from the forward head to port, there is a large hanging locker, followed by a low-boy with storage above and under.
There is a lovely reading lamp mounted on the bulkhead over. To starboard, against the main bulkhead, there is yet another low-boy with storage under and large flatscreen TV mounted on the bulkhead over. Outboard of the low-boy, there is a large storage locker.
The main salon features settee births to port and starboard with pilot berths over and outboard. There is a beautiful varnished teak double drop leaf table to starboard and the floors are teak and holly WITH LOCKING FLOORBOARDS!!
Directly aft of the starboard settee, to starbpard, is a dedicated, navigation station and chart table with plenty of room for additional electronic navigation and communication equipment outboard.
The large nav table/desk has a generous storage locker under the desk top and room for the additional electronic navigation and communication equipment outboard. There is storage under the nav desk. Overhead is an opening port & deck ventilator, for excellent cross ventilation with the galley and Nav area on either side of the companionway.
On center line, between the galley and the nav station, are the main companionway steps. There is storage in one compartment on the port side and the steps are easily removed for great engine access. To the port of the steps, directly aft of the nav station, there is a large teak door which leads to the aft, owners head.
This design is, one of the listing brokers favorite layouts as it affords a crew member coming off watch, to immediately enter the head with teak grate and remove wet foul weather gear and boots, without traipsing through the main saloon and getting salt water EVERYWHERE! It is also easy access for any crew member to come below to use the head, without disturbing sleeping guests or fellow crew members.
The aft head has a round stainless steel sink, ensuite shower with hot and cold pressure water and storage behind the head and a tambour rolling door cabinet, with tons of storage outboard. There is also a bulkhead mounted mirror and a rear door with entrance into the owners large aft cabin.
To port of the companionway stairs is a classic “L” shaped, walk through (between main saloon and aft owners stateroom). There is a large top opening fridge/freezer with easy-clean shelving. Outboard are TWO large tambour rolling door cabinets with lots of great storage. Here we have two deep stainless steel sinks with hot and cold pressure water and fresh water foot pump, and under, there is a large 2 door cabinet.
Next aft is a Seaward 2-burner, stainless steel, gimbaled stove with oven and broiler and top loading dry storage cabinet next to it. Under the stove there is pan storage in an enclosed locker. There is generous counter space, abundant storage for dishes and food supplies, all equaling LIVEABILITY. There is plenty of room for TWO COOKS IN THE GALLEY!!!
And again, with yet another overhead mushroom vent, there’s plenty of cross ventilation in the galley.
NOW COMES THE FUN PART!! Walking further aft you will find, perhaps the best captains quarters, in the sailing community.
There is a center line bed, accessible from both port and starboard, a cockpit opening port, built-in cabinetry, storage both port and starboard, a good sized dressing seat with storage under and a large cedar lined hanging locker.
