I find the Morgan 416 a beautiful crusing boat. It sails very well, however I can only get about 50 degrees into the wind.

I intend to make a circumnavation with this boat leaving in abour a year.

I would recommend this boat to anyone who is looking for a
good sailing confortable cruising boat.

I am able to sail this boat single handedly with no problems.

I sail in the Atlantic Oean off the New Jersey coast.

I Will be glad to hear from anyone who would like more information about my boat.

Philip

I purchased this OI Ketch from a Maryland owner in 1994 who had maintained her in very good condition and even though she was in the charter fleet in St. Thomas in the mid eighties, she had been well cared for while in the US.
She has a 4-154 Perkins 65hp Engine, 100 gal fuel capacity, 250 gal water, propane stove, engine driven cold plate, and a tall rig , about 61.5 feet to anchor light tip.
She is built solid. Whenever I drill deck, hull or bulkheads, I am trying to figure how to make the bit a little longer. I had a 16,000 btu heat pump installed this year, and the holes that were cut through some very solid thick materials.
She points to wind better than I thought she would and actually sails evenly with other lighter boats in over 12knots of wind.
We are onboard most weekends from March to November on the Chesapeake and enjoy the layout and space. I have added many creature features and look forward to comparing notes.

We bought the Island Gypsy in June 1997. Having previously owned a 1975 Morgan Classic 30, we were very familiar with the company. This 416 has not been in charter and we are the fourth owners. The second owner planned to take the boat to South America and equipped it for that trip. Fortunately, for me they changed their mind. All the features are standard as with all the 416s. Added are: self tending cutter, stainless steel ports, bronze thru hulls, watermaker, SSB, radar, autopilot, 3KW Onan generator, plus other features. One particular item that I do enjoy is the electric powered oil changer for the engine and generator. We have just put on a full enclosuer, profurl on the head sail and the cutter, installed a dutchman. The rig is 62 feet with a 3 foot VHF. I look forward to learning more about the 416 from more experienced owners.

Pros:
Cons:

We purchased ALGORITHM II new in the fall of 1982 and have enjoyed sailing her on both coasts of Florida, the Keys, Dry Tortugas, and throughout most of the Bahamas. We have continually updated her electronics which include radar, speed, depth, wind, GPS, loran, autopilot, two VHF's, and SSB-RX. Davit installation has worked out very well for her 10'6" RIB and 25hp Mercury outboard. These 41 Morgans are extremely well-built boats, heavy, safe, and very comfortable to cruise. Their 4'2" draft is a big plus factor, especially in the Bahamas. They won't win many races, but in 12-18 knots of wind will do a steady 6.5 to 7.5 knots. Overall satisfaction in our case: a solid 10.

"Sea Lady" was primarily purchased for a comfortable liveaboard after we finished cruising the Bahamas in '97. It has been a great boat, equipped with a Perkins 62hp., 7.7kw Westerbeke, dual a/c's, refrig./freezer, SSB, full liveaboard electronics, etc. Although compromising upwind performance, I think it's far better to sneak in a harbor where others cannot. I am in the process of ordering new sails and I will post what (if any) upwind performance improves. The other discouragement of early 80's M41's is the profusion of boats we looked at with hundreds of osmotic blisters or beat up in the charter trade.. We are happy to have found one with very little blistering but still had the bottom sandblasted and barrier coated. I recommend the Out Islands bar none for cruisers and liveaboards!

UPDATE 1/00: We are practically done restoring/improving her (see: www.pacifier.com/~sailing Go to More Projects - Sleeper) She is now Insignia White w/Forest Green stripes (Awlgrip). We added: Lewmar Ocean Series hatches, stainless steel ports, S/L Sprint 900 electric windlass, Garhauer rigid vang, custom made swim/diving platform,canvaswork in Harvest Tweed sunbrella, interior is Hunter Green ultrasuede. We divided the anchor locker into
two sections,added a custom designed (two 10lb tank) propane locker for the stern,added two hatches to the otherwise dark heads, installing new air conditioners and a genset. We had some deck delamination so we had it re-cored, cockpit fwd on the "doghouse". A new shaft, prop,cutlass and center support bearing. New Fuel, Water & Waste fills along with vents. And a bunch of other custom work. We're still working on the
interior, but I'd say we're about 95% complete. Sails great!

Hello Phillip, I live in NJ and am considering buying a 41 for live aboard and eventual winters in Fla.. Have you gone through Manasquan Canal and if so how do you find it? Thanks - John
