    There were over 600 Morgan 38 sailboats built between
    the late 1960s and the 1990s. There are 5 different models as follows:
    • Charley Morgan 38 - 80 built between 1969 and 1971. Designed by Charley Morgan.
    • Morgan 382 - Ted Brewer design, ~300 built between 1977 and 1981
    • Morgan 383 - Taller mast, bigger rudder, traveler on deck, ~100 built 1982-1983
    • Morgan 384 - Slight modifications mostly cosmetic, ~100 built 1983-1984
    • Catalina/Morgan 38 - Different design, built by Catalina Yachts after they acquired Morgan Yachts, Center Cockpit, ~60 built in 1990s.
    Morgan 38s have a reputation of being a solid, bluewater-capable cruising boat that does pretty well on the racecourse as well.

    More coming ... please help provide content.
