Broker's Comments
1986 Recommissioned Morgan M-30
We are extremely pleased to represent this beautifully restored Morgan M-30 for your consideration. When I first saw her, I thought she was almost new. She has been lovingly cared for, resorted with the finest materials and constantly upgraded. She was originally fitted for a Trans Atlantic crossing and sailing around the world! She is equally capable of a short hop to the Bahamas or the Keys, or on down to the Virgin Islands. I was impressed with the attention to detail and the condition of the boat overall. On a scale of one to ten, I give it a 9.45! The owner has all of the cushions and the sails in his heated barn in Michigan and is willing to bring them all down and to spend as much time as necessary to get the new owner comfortable with the vessel and her systems!There is also a trailer available for the boat which is not included in the price. You need to see this one if you are looking for a true turnkey! As a bonus you will get the coveted map to the Bar at the End of the World!  Call for your exclusive showing!Disclaimer
