Re: Thoughts on Morgan West Indies models

they are a lot like the Morgan OI 41 ...heavy, narrow, built like a tank. Some had perkins diesels, I have seen a couple with Nanni, but did not know if that was a repower or option. I liveaboard one for a bit, when I was younger and found it to be huge compared to a small cheoy lee, I had before..

They are "roomy" for their design time ('70's) but will feel cramped and close as compared to a similar size boat of today.

It all depends on what you are looking for in a boat. They are great for liveaboard and have decent woodwork and build. By now it will either have been refit, or will be due for a refit. Rigging for sure, should be inspected.
