1978 Morgan 382

Metairie, Louisiana


PRICE REDUCED FROM $45,000 NOW $39,500This is a beautiful example of a Morgan 382!  She had a bottom job done at the end of 2019.  She was re-powered in 2017 with a Yanmar 3JH4E.  All of her interior woodwork has been stripped and varnished.  All of her ports were rebedded.  All new headliner was installed.  She has been consistently upgraded and renewed.  (Click on the "Additional Information" tab to see the extensive list.)  Whether you are looking to sail in the lake, coastal cruise, or set sail to your dream island, she can take you.  The under sail motion of these boats is predictable and comfortable, with an elongated fin keel, skeg-mounted rudder and lead ballast. She points high and cuts through chop easily. All lines lead aft to the cockpit allowing for ease in single handing. Her abundant stowage compartments make for ease in provisioning.  Her interior woodwork positively shines and overall she's a handsome boat that sails well and is built strong.
