This North American 40 was designed by Dick Carter, manufactured by Morgan Yachts, and is one of only 45, built between 1978 and 1981.

With its wide 12'-7" Beam, she was built as a racer. The previous owners did compete with her in the San Francisco Bay, and the current owner, who's not a racer, has had her up to 9.5 Knots.

Morgan's have a great reputation for being solidly built to handle any Bluewater you plan to sail. The Ballast comes in at 7900 lbs, and the draft at a respectable 7'-1"

With the standard Morgan layout down below, you have a V-berth forward, Head with a compostable toilet, Convertible Dinette, settee, galley, and a quarter berth aft.

The Galley has a nice size sink, Gimballed stove/oven, Icebox, and fridge. (Seller doesn't know if fridge works.)

Up on deck, the Cockpit is a comfortable space for all, with great visibility behind the wheel.

The awesome sail inventory includes a Mainsail, an asymmetrical spinnaker with a pole, 2 jibs, and a storm trysail.

When you're ready for the perfect boat for the West Coast, definitely take a look at the Morgan and please contact us.

This boat is on a mooring, and with the seller's schedule, Showings can be scheduled for Mondays or Tuesdays only.

Information On Condition

Splashed again in February 2022,
the prop shaft was straightened and the entire bottom was taken down to fiberglass, re-gel coated and the entire hull painted to the beautiful colors you see in the photos.

The seller reports that the mainsail has a small rip on the bottom of the sail, but that has not affected performance. And there seems to be an electrical short that needs to be discovered onboard.

Approximate boat location: Avila Beach, California
