My name is Don, my wife Kim and I coach gymnastics, thus the screen name. Our current plans are to sell our house in 1-2 years, buy a boat to live on, and to travel in the Caribbean initially. I have been researching possible "budget" boats, and have a list of candidates. Number 1 on that list is the Morgan 382-384 series. I joined the forum because I was flying in to Hilton Head, SC for a competition in Savannah, GA, and there was a 382 listed in Hilton Head that I wanted to see. I wanted to get some more in depth info on the boats before I walked through her. We are not actually in the market, but the broker was nice enough to allow us to see the boat so we could get a better idea of living space/storage, etc. My first impression was that the saloon was very open, and bright (at least compared to the few I have been on), the cockpit a little small, and the V-berth a little tall! We are both short, 5'7" and 5'2", so the size of the berth works for sleeping, but it seemed tight getting in and out. Removing the solar panel that was stored in the way, and maybe adding a step or stool would alleviate this. The head was decent sized, and it appeared that the shower area could be screened off to keep the head dry?, although this boat had nothing in place, and the shower was a sail locker. Overall, I was pleased with the potential this series of boats holds, and it will remain highlighted on my list.
