1979 Morgan 382: these Morgans have a following for their good build quality, space and generous teak finishes below—while maintaining decent classic-plastic looks above. She’s dry and comfortable in a sea, wide side-decks and substantial 6” bulwarks and walk-around shrouds make the foredeck very accessible.

Sleeps 6+

Perkins 4.108 diesel (50hp rating): original, well maintained, reliable.

Interior teak is in great condition, especially for its age, with the original finish, all drawers, doors, and hardware are original and functional. Cushions are in decent shape.

Previous owner updated all the port lights (originals are known to leak) with really nice bronze units (“NFM” brand). Forepeak and salon Bomar hatches are original but are very solid and don’t leak a drop. All seacoks are bronze ball valves.

Decks are airex-cored (no wood!), while there are cracks in the gel coat typical of a boat this age, there are zero leaks or soft spots. Hull looks good/shines right up. Teak cockpit grates are in good shape.

Original (keel-stepped) mast is stout and in good shape. Standing rigging is newer (late 90's?) and in great shape. Chainplates are accessible and free from corrosion. Halyards are 2 seasons old, other running rigging is showing its age, but usable for coastal cruising. The Hyde Streamstay One furler was rebuilt in 2020 and it’s as smooth as butter. Nice big self-tailing winches in the cockpit. 3+ nice winch handles.

SAILS: comes with a bunch of sails… There’s a suit of storm sails that are in like-new condition, and then 2 mains and 3 genoas. Between them there's a usable set. The others need rather straight forward maintenance/repairs (Sun stripe needs to be restitched on a genoa, for example)

GROUND TACKLE: 45 lbs CQR, 20-H Danforth, 200’ of double braided ¾” rode with ~20’ of chain, and 200’ of three-strand ¾” rode with a shorter amount of chain.

Raymarine electronics are dated but everything works: radar, chart plotter, autohelm, depth, speed, wind. VHF in the nav stations + full featured RAM mic in the cockpit. New bluetooth/aux stereo in the salon and some USB-power outlets

12V panel and wiring is original, and in good shape. The 30 amp AC shorepower system is also original, if I were going to liveabord or put significant appliances/loads on it, I’d upgrade the outlets and throughly check/test other components.

Hot (engine loop/electric) and cold pressurized water system (2 tanks hold +/- 100 gals), including a semi-separate shower stall in the rather spacious head.

Galley is well appointed: deep double sink, great counter space and lots of storage, gimbaled 3-burner stove with oven (propane locker with remote solenoid in lazarette), large ice chest. White Formica is in good shape. Conveys with all pots, pans, plates, etc.

Dodger and mainsail cover are in good shape. There are matching winch and binnacle/helm covers.

She conveys with a good number of spares and useful parts/safety equipment/galley items. Previously USCG documented.

I have print and PDF manuals for just about everything.

Currently on the hard in Blue Hill, bottom is clean, ready for paint and launch. Will consider selling with jackstands if you’re interested.

Reason for selling: career change and other life stuff is keeping me from sailing her enough to justify the time (and money) of maintaining and storing it. If I were the sentimental type about boats, I’d be keeping her!

More pictures and video available upon request, thoughtful offers accepted.
