From the good folks at Cruising World:

"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, Cat-alina-Morgan, built nearly 500 of the Morgan 382 and its later configurations, the 383 and 384. Owners have taken them everywhere.

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 3 comfortably at the drop-leaf table. A wide settee and a narrow pilot berth occupy the starboard side with table seating for another 2. The head is roomy and has a fully enclosed shower, but because of the boat's fine entry, the V-berth is relatively small.

This boat brought some innovations to the market in 1977. The topsides and the deck were cored with synthetic foam at a time when balsa and plywood were the norm. Morgan also introduced a novel drain system: All deck drains connect to a PVC tube that runs across the boat aft and under the cockpit. Owners call it the "torpedo tube."

Under sail, the motion is predictable and comfortable, and the wide deck offers excellent footing with many flat surfaces. The practical and well-protected cockpit commands a clear view in all directions. The helm is responsive, but directional stability with the wind aft of the beam isn't great. Overall, the boat is stiff and fast; it points high, and it cuts through chop easily.
The 3gm30 yanmar will power the boat at 6-6.5 knots while consuming just above a half gallon an hour.

The anchoring system, consists of a single anchor roller and a foredeck locker.

ConditionAccording to the seller, this boat has been on the hard for the last 7 years. He ran the engine for some time in 2014 and it works well. The boat has recent bronze- glass portlights, new upholstery in the last 10 years, a dodger that is in great shape and equipment and a layout that makes her a terrific cruiser and liveaboard. He knows of no soft spots on the decks, cockpit or cabin top, but she does have at least one soft spot around one of the portlights. She has 1 main and 2 genoas that are in good serviceable condition. The bad..... -Running rigging needs to be replaced, because squirrels got into the mast. -interior wall panels around the new portlights are stained from the leaking original portlights. -all systems worked when it was put up, but will require recommissioning of all systems.
