Super Clean and Updated Classic Morgan!
Built between 1972 and 1976 at the height of the Morgan Yachts era, this boat has been re-powered and updated throughout. Tiller-steered, she harks back to the IOR racing rule days (some say she was intended more for racing under MORC). She carries a PHRF rating in the 160's and will be a joy to sail in our Puget Sound waters.
The Yanmar 3GM diesel is a solid bet for longevity and reliability, with under 2,300 hours. She's equipped with a folding Max-Prop and a slim skeg running the full length of the rudder for strength and good tracking on all points. Her chain plates have been customized to provide exceptional strength.
Her sail inventory includes a partially-battened mainsail, 150% genoa, and 4 additional headsails. A 7-foot inflatable dinghy with oars is also included.
The cockpit is very roomy and the dodger provides excellent companionway protection with the traveler/main sheet just behind the companionway entrance. All lines are led aft to the cockpit.
Four headsail winches, 2 of which are self-tailers, hydraulic backstay adjuster, modern hydraulic boom vang, and an auto-pilot round out the list of extras on deck.
Below you will find a very clean, usable boat. The table folds up to a very minimal footprint and the Dickinson bulkhead heater will keep you warm year-round. The nav station just forward of the quarter berth is easy to use. The galley to starboard is plenty adequate for this size vessel. The head and V-berth are forward, with a fairly new toilet, nice cushions in the V-berth and good storage.
The Dent de Lion is a very practical, enjoyable sailboat and her slip at the Everett Marina is readily transferable to a new owner.
