What is the Morgan 41 Out-Island sailboat like to sail?

Based on Published Design Ratios for the Morgan 41 Classic:

  • Her Sail Area/Displacement Ratio of just 15.5 suggests that she is just a tad under-powered and will need a stiff breeze to get her going. In light conditions, unless you've got plenty of time on your hands, motor-sailing may be the way to go.
  • Her Ballast/Displacement Ratio of 37.0 means that she is likely to benefit from being reefed early to keep her sailing upright in a moderate breeze.
  • Her Displacement/Length Ratio of 261 tells us she is a moderate displacement cruiser, which means she'll carry all your cruising gear without it having a dramatic effect on her performance. 
  • Ted Brewer's Comfort Ratio of 29.7 suggests that her crew comfort in a seaway is very close to what you would associate with the motion of a moderate bluewater cruising boat - a predictable and acceptable motion for most seasoned sailors.

more about these all-important Design Ratios...

The Morgan 41 Classic 'Music II' is described as having a 'twin headsail Solent Rig'. How does this differ from the cutter rig?

The Cutter has its two headsails set well apart with the inner stay attached a distance down from the masthead and aft of the stemhead.

On a Solent Rigged sailboat, the headsails are set much closer together with both stays attached close to the masthead and the stemhead.

But of course, there's rather more to it than that, each of the two rigs having significant benefits and disadvantages when compared to the other.

The Cutter v. the Solent Rig...
