A teardrop-shaped hull, wide beam, discreet reverse transom, and long overhangs might be the hallmarks of a vintage racing boat, but Ted Brewer designed the Morgan 382 as a cruiser, not as a racer that could also be cruised. From 1977 to 1986, Morgan Yachts and its successor, Catalina-Morgan, built nearly 500 of the Morgan 382 and its later configurations, the 383 and 384. Owners have taken them everywhere. 

Visually, the boat is balanced and well proportioned, and the low cabin trunk and 6-inch bulwarks help keep the profile trim. At upward of 17,000 pounds on a waterline of 30 feet 6 inches, the boat is almost in the heavy-displacement category. The hull, however, with its elongated fin keel, skeg-attached rudder, and roundish bilge, isn't that of a slow cruiser. 

The all-Teak interior offers volumes of room and storage. The head of the double quarter berth to starboard serves as the seat for the nav station; opposite is a large and efficient galley. In the saloon, the U-shaped seat to port only seats three to four comfortably at the drop-leaf table. A wide settee and a pilot berth occupy the starboard side. The head is roomy and has a fully enclosed shower. 

This boat brought some innovations to the market in 1977. The topsides and the deck were cored with synthetic foam at a time when balsa and plywood were the norm. Morgan also introduced a novel drain system: All deck drains connect to a PVC tube that runs across the boat aft and under the cockpit. Owners call it the "torpedo tube." 

Under sail, the motion is predictable and comfortable, and the wide deck offers excellent footing with many flat surfaces. The practical and well-protected cockpit commands a clear view in all directions. The helm is responsive, and overall, the boat is stiff and fast; it points high, and it cuts through chop easily. With just a little TLC this 382 will take you anywhere you want to go.
