Pic's a little washed out, but it looks like a Morgan Out Islander 30 to me....

Late 70s Morgan Out Islander. One of the designs Charlie Morgan would like to attribute to someone else.

Somehow I doubt that. The OI 41 was one of the first boats inducted into the Sailboat Hall of Fame and is likely still the highest production big boat ever.

I suspect the OI series made Charlie more money than all his other boats combined.

That looks like it might be a match. So In your humble opinions would it be worth looking at?

If low price, accommodation space and comfort are your priorities and sailing performance considerably less so, definitely.

Lots of room for a 30' but is definitely not known for its sailing characteristics. Built well though.

In real estate they say "Location, location, location". For ANY boat it's more like "Condition, condition, condition"

On the face of it, sounds like a good deal, but you should seriously consider getting a pro to survey it. Remember, there's no such thing as a "free" boat, and a boat that sells for $3k might cost you that much or far more after you buy it. Could be the best money you ever spend.

As a Morgan 33 Out Island owner, I believe that you'll be amazed at just how well the Out Island series sails. Prior to my purchasing the 33 everyone, including the owner, said on a good day, with 15 knots of steady wind, on a beam or broad reach, you might get 4 or 5 out of the boat. With a clean bottom, 15 knots, beam or better yet, a broad reach, 7.5 to 8.2 is not out of the question.

Additionally, that full-keeled boat is not tender, doesn't heel very much, has far more living space than boats 4 to 6 feet longer, lots of headroom in the cabin and beneath the boom, and handles like a dream.

If the boat in the photo passes inspection by a certified surveyor, go for it - you will NOT be disappointed!

Cheers,

Gary :cool:

There is a Tartan 30 close by me that I could probably buy for 5 grand, put another
25-30k into her and have a nice 15k boat. I actually had a yard offer to give me a Cheoy Lee 32 but even that would not have been a good deal. It's just the nature of the beast. You have to look very carefully and count all the cost. Once you have done that.... DOUBLE it.
