Pros:
Cons:

Ketch rig with a draft of 5.5ft.... Cutaway forefoot..Beam is 15ft. 135hp Perkins; 10KW Kohler Gen., 1000amsp of DC with an inverter. Sails very well and easily handled by 2 crew. All sails are furled... There is very little to criticize about the boat ...I objectively rate it very high as a boat for cruising...Easy 7 knots with 10 to 12 knots of wind.... Be happy to answer any questions about it.....

Pros:
Cons:

1975 Morgan Out Island Ketch; hull # 017. 511 series. Center cockpit. Has 3 staterooms and 2 heads. "L" shaped galley. Walk-in Engine room. Sails wonderfully and handles well when most boats have to turn in. Has 5 1/2' draft with the centerboard up and 10' whwn down. Major refit in 2000: Yanmar 100hp engine, Northen Lights 12 Kw Generator, Vetus bowthruster, 3 a/c units, and new electonics. The 51's have been called the "floating condo" and rightfully so. She has all the comforts of home and makes and excellent yacht for living aboard and Blue water cruising. She is a solid yacht without any sacrifices. The hull is 1"+ thick which makes her durable and heavy. She won't win any speed races, but Will get you there. I hope to get another 25+ years out of her.
