There are 3 totally different Morgan 38's, designed by Charlie Morgan, Ted Brewer (382/3/4) and a more recent center cockpit version by Catalina.
Performance wise, when I look at NE PHRF ratings, the Morgan 382 rates 144, the 384 is 135, the C&C LF 38 is also 135. These boats are all very close in performance.
The Tartan 37CB is slower at a PHRF of 177.
The Newport 41 is in a different class altogether with a PHRF of 102.
The Tartan, C&C, and Morgan were all on our short-list, as 38' was at top of our "ideal size" list. We wound up with a Morgan.
