Owner will consider trades.

The Morgan 38, designed by Ted Brewer, is truly one of the classic plastic boats from the eighties. This design has a well-earned reputation as an excellent boat for her build quality as well as her excellent sailing qualities.

This example is one of the nicest to come to the market in some time. With recent paint on the hull and deck, she shines like a new boat. She has been well cared for and updated.

Please see the full listing for all of her upgrades.
