Re: Any Ideas

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.

Re: Any Ideas

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.

Re: Any Ideas

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

Re: Any Ideas

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.

Re: Any Ideas

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

Re: Any Ideas

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.
