Many similarities to us on your inquiry!We needed a bigger boat,- 4 of us before our adult children moved ashore......I'm 6'3".........we're cruising fulltime from Maine to the Bahamas with the seasons.......Here's the conflict with your needs,- ours is not a performance boat, but then it is a well functioning sailboat,- "nothing goes to windward like a 747!.....We are teachers (now retired).....ours is a 1973,- a tough "truck"....we love our shallow draft at 4'3"!
..performance is relative
...'not a light wind vessel, but we love our morgan, 'take care and joy, Aythya crew
