I like the looks of the Morgan Out Island 37, but can hardly find any information about them. Sailboatdata.com has a listing, but I can't find any diagrams of the interior layout, copies of old brochures on them, or any other real details.

So, anybody got a link to more/better information?

Also, does anyone know for sure if the OI 37 and the 372 are the same boats, or are there differences?

Thanks.

I have a 1976 41 oi island have no issues at all. The hull is an inch or better thick. No flex and the deck is sealed well ,never leaked. I did have to reveal the none opening ports. The standing rigging in in great shape,just had it inspected and need to replace twos wedge fitting. Just take it out with some friends in some stiff weather and give it he'll. do have the rigging checked out cause most surveyors don't check them.
I found pictures on Google by typing Morgan 372 out island.
Good luck.

I just bought a 37 OI. There is some stuff I found on board that you find useful. I'll see if I can scan it in the next few days for you. I am finding information hard to find as well.

We just bought a Morgan Out Islander mk II. We plan on completely restoring it and are looking to see if anyone has the original plans or any words of wisdom to pass on.

Thanks!

No offense, but I don't think Morgan ever made a boat that they called an "Out Islander." They made a wide variety of boats, in a range of sizes, that they designated "Out Island" (no "er" on the end). So are you asking about the Out Island 37, or some other size/model?

I sincerely appreciate the jpg posted by Bob. I also found this page, which has some pictures...

The layout of the boat in the pictures is clearly different from the diagram that Bob posted, so I'm guessing that it came with different, optional interiors. But that's just a guess. Maybe this is the difference between the OI37 and the Morgan 372? Though I have seen other things that say that OI37 and 372 were just different designations for the exact same boat.

I don't know. In any case, this still remains (to me, at least) a somewhat mysterious model of the Morgan Out Island range.

Bob L -

I am the owner of the boat in the flikr link that denverd0n posted. The one Ms O Gorman was referring to. She apologizes for adding the "er" as we are new to sailing. I was very fortunate to have a previous owner who kept everything. There is a definite difference in the layout between the OI37 and the OI372. All of my registration paperwork, the original sail-plan blueprints, the systems manual, everything I have reads OI372. So I am confident that the only difference is the actual interior layout. I have gutted the whole boat, and have sanded about 80
5 of the hull n topsides. I'm glad those pretentious people before me couldn't see her beauty and I snatched her up an an amazing price! I will post some pictures soon of the ongoing refit.
