This was my first time owning a sailboat after sailing for years on other people's. I fully refitted the boat from bottom to top.

Being a finish carpenter with a successful construction company, I spared no expense making sure this will always be the nicest Morgan of its age. The boat has over $90,000 into it.

It has been an education, but I don't regret it. We sailed to Honduras, Panama and Colombia and back.

It is a very solid boat. Really takes heavy seas well. While not that fast, she is very roomy inside with the storage of a 45' racer. We now have a 39 Leopard Catamaran.

I would sell this boat to my next door neighbor or best friend without any hesitation. Not many who are selling boats can say that.

Currently out of the water for the hurricane season. Please take a look, you won't be disappointed.

Asking Price of the Morgan 33
by: Kyle Klischuk

I am asking 39,000 USD for this boat.
As mentioned, i put $90,000 into her which doesn't include any of my personal labor of course.
The electronics package was $12000 alone.
Everything was purchased new upon refit. Very few of the original items stayed when I did this, step by step. So everything is 3-4 years old and well maintained since then.
The reason for selling - my wife and I bought a Leopard 39 Catamaran after being on a new Lagoon and now we have two boats.
Otherwise, I didn't plan to buy a new boat for many years. The refit was done in mind for the long term. So all my energy, efforts and expense can be had at a greatly reduced cost.
