The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    Being put up for sale:

    A Morgan 54 (centerboard model) hull and flush deck fabricated at

    Morgan Yachts in St. Petersburg, FL back in 1970. The prototype

    Morgan 54 was the ocean racer RAGE designed/built in 1968 by Charley Morgan.

    Specs: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=2811

    Centerboard hull: draft with board up: 5.67' ...draft with board down: 12.5'

    Ballast......Keel: 17,000 pounds Centerboard: 800 pounds

    Was hauled back to Duluth, MN from the Morgan plant and the hull and deck have been

    in storage since then. The original intent was to create a world class cruising sailboat for a

    life of cruising around the world but that never transpired. Photos from the transporting of the

    hull back in 1971 attached. Updated photos will be available when the storage

    building is taken down in the near future.
