The good news: MORGAN 34 Sailboat details on
Sailboatdata does not show the center board version of the 34' but it was pretty common for builders to make several versions.
The engine in this boat has had a re-power from the Atomic 4 to a diesel: 1967 Morgan CENTER BOARD SLOOP Sail Boat For Sale -
My Tartan 27' is from the same year and has a very similar hull shape and center board. The nearly full keel makes for a pretty forgiving sailor although it will not turn on a dime.
The bad news: boats this old will likely need some significant upgrades and/or repairs as anything original is 43 years old. Chain plates come to mind.
Depending on what comes with this boat I think the asking price is a little high. Get it surveyed to find out if there are any major repairs needed.
- engine recent? low hours? well maintained?
- new or recent sails? spinnaker and pole?
- new or recent instruments/electronics?
- radar? life raft?
- decks not soft?
If all of the above is true then make an offer < $19K.
