This beautiful vessel has sailed the Caribbean, East &  West coasts of America, and she has transited the Panama Canal. She is well equipped for long distance offshore sailing, and as a very comfortable live aboard, so you can have the best of both worlds. Morgan Out Islands are well known for their heavy construction and roomy live-aboard interiors. This Morgan 51 is a cutter-rigged ketch with dual roller furling head sails so you can have a sail combination for any type of weather or sea conditions. All halyards and control lines lead aft to the cockpit for safety.

If you have a large family, lots of friends, or just need a roomy interior, come check out this big boat! She has 3 staterooms, 2 heads with showers (AFT CABIN HAS A TUB)  and many unique features to include solid Teak and Holly cabin sole, custom hard top, new washer & dryer, and much much more.  She would also make a great Captained chartered vessel anywhere in the world
