Morgan 382 - Ted Brewer design, ~ 300 built between 1977 and 1981. This Vessel has been in Fresh Water for the past 29 years. A teardrop-shaped hull, wide beam, discreet reverse transom, and long overhangs might be the hallmarks of a vintage racing boat, but Ted Brewer designed the Morgan 382 as a cruiser (quote Michel Savage).

A handsome and classically designed sailboat that today still shines among the stars in the harbor. She is a practical affordable sailboat and when maintained and cared for hold their value and built strong enough to cross oceans.
