Liberty is a 1980 Morgan 461 sloop that was refit from stem to stern in 2001 by her previous owner. Most people who see the boat for the first time think she’s a late-model boat. (See layout and sail plans below).
Why did we choose the name “Liberty?” There are three reasons, really...
- We’re a pretty patriotic pair
- The boat represents the freedom to live as we choose and go wherever we like
- In the Navy, when you’re not on duty, you’re on liberty. Now that we’re both retired Navy folks, we’re always “on Liberty!”
All sailors have their own ideas about what makes the perfect cruising boat. We had a list of desirable items we wanted in our ideal boat, some critical and some just plain nice to have. Liberty has everything on our list and more:
