Morgan 40-ft ketch

The Morgan 40-ft ketch is a great cruising sailboat. If you have ever seen a Hinkley Bermuda 40 on the hard, you will see the same type full keel, shoal draft design. There were different interior designs. There was the Tri-cabin which was designed for charter (before Charley Morgan built the Out Island). There was also a more traditional design which had an aft galley. We have a aft galley design Morgan 40 (Vintage 1971).

You mentioned Roy Disney. Did you purchase his boat? We were at the Morgan Invasion this year at St. Petersberg, FL and Charley Morgan mentioned that he had shipped a Morgan 40 for Roy Disney to Driscoll's Boat Yard in San Diego CA. He and we were wondering where the boat is now. How did you find out about the boat and the original name?
