1978 Morgan 382

  • 38 ft
  • Portsmouth, RI, US

Yacht price :



This Morgan 382 Lime’n is a 1978 Ted Brewer design built by Morgan Yachts, Largo Florida.
The yacht was totally upgraded in 2010-2012 and has been further upgraded and maintained by her present owner.
Awlgrip Seashell green hull, blue & red boot stripe, gold cove line
Cruising World  Description: 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, not as a racer that could also be cruised. From 1977 to 1986, Morgan Yachts and its successor, Catalina-Morgan, built nearly 500 of the Morgan 382 and its later configurations, the 383 and 384. Owners have taken them everywhere.
Visually, the boat is balanced and well proportioned, and the low cabin trunk and 6-inch bulwarks help keep the profile trim. At upward of 17,000 pounds on a waterline of 30 feet 6 inches, the boat is almost in the heavy-displacement category. The hull, however, with its elongated fin keel, skeg-attached rudder, and roundish bilge, isn’t that of a slow cruiser.
The all-wood interior offers volumes of room and storage. The head of the double quarter berth to starboard serves as the seat for the nav area; opposite is a large and efficient galley. In the saloon, the L-shaped seat to port seats six comfortably at the drop-leaf table. The pilot berth has been removed to allow for storage cupboards.
