Morgan Yachts

1963 - 1992

Charles Morgan was already well known as a designer of one particularly successful racer, 'Paper Tiger', when he started building another of his designs, the TIGER CUB, on his own. But it wasn't until 1965 when he joined forces with long time friend, Bruce Bidwell, and began to build the successful MORGAN 34. This was followed, most notably, by the MORGAN 24, 30, 41, and 45.
The OUT ISLAND 41, introduced in 1970, became legendary as a no-frills, center-cockpit standard, especially in the charter trade.
Charles Morgan's involvement in the company ended in 1972.
Since that time, the company was passed from one corporate entity to another, until it came into the hands of Catalina Yachts in 1984. Catalina continued with a few models, including the OUT ISLAND 41, before the Morgan name was retired.
