1978 Morgan 382. These boats are known for their solid construction and seaworthy design. Solid fiberglass below the waterline, foam core above, no wood core to rot. We have owned the boat for a few years and have made many upgrades, but no longer have the time to devote to her. She needs a good partner to finish the upgrades and take her on the next journey.
