Seller's Description

Finest example of a Morgan Out Island 37’. A proven live aboard cruising boat. Currently located in St Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands.

In the galley… • Super cold refrigeration (makes ice!) with a reliable Alder Barbour Coldmachine. • Force 10 propane stove with solenoid safety shutoff. • Hot and cold running water (both galley and head). • Recently replaced hot water heater (Kuuma).

Below the waterline… • New bottom paint and boot stripe. • All seacocks in excellent working condition and routinely checked. • Recently installed new propeller (NiBrAl 17LH16 1-1/4) plus a spare prop, new prop shaft, and all new zincs.

Onboard safety… • Equipment includes (4) fire extinguishers, plus an Amerex CO2 extinguisher (5 lbs) and fire access port for the engine room. • Also (2) automatic bilge pumps with high-water alarm, plus a Whale high-capacity manual bilge pump.

Offshore safety… • Equipment includes jack lines and (2) harnesses, (4) automatic life jackets, many sturdy life jackets, lots of flares, and a Lifesling. • Also, an offshore life raft (Viking RescYou Pro, 4-persons), a well-stocked ditch kit, and (2) ACR PLBs.

Dinghy and motor available separately – Good condition AB VS-10 dinghy and 9.8 Tohatsu 2-stroke outboard. Willing to negotiate a complete package price.

Mooring available separately - Mooring is a robust well-maintained mooring located in a great spot in Christiansted Harbor. Built with USA parts. Willing to negotiate a complete package price.

Boat stands available separately – A full set of (7) HOSTAR boat stands in excellent condition. Willing to negotiate a complete package price.

Come inspect, and fall in love with, this Good Old Boat.

Hull Speed

Classic: 7.12 kn

Hull Speed

The theoretical maximum speed that a displacement hull can move efficiently through the water is determined by it's waterline length and displacement. It may be unable to reach this speed if the boat is underpowered or heavily loaded, though it may exceed this speed given enough power. Read more.


Classic hull speed formula:

Hull Speed = 1.34 x √LWL

A more accurate formula devised by Dave Gerr in The Propeller Handbook replaces the Speed/Length ratio constant of 1.34 with a calculation based on the Displacement/Length ratio.

Max Speed/Length ratio = 8.26 ÷ Displacement/Length ratio.311
Hull Speed = Max Speed/Length ratio x √LWL

7.06 knots
Classic formula: 7.12 knots
Sail Area/Displacement
<16: under powered

Sail Area / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the power of the sails relative to the weight of the boat. The higher the number, the higher the performance, but the harder the boat will be to handle. This ratio is a "non-dimensional" value that facilitates comparisons between boats of different types and sizes. Read more.


SA/D = SA ÷ (D ÷ 64)2/3

  • SA: Sail area in square feet, derived by adding the mainsail area to 100% of the foretriangle area (the lateral area above the deck between the mast and the forestay).
  • D: Displacement in pounds.
<16: under powered
16-20: good performance
>20: high performance
>40: stiffer, more powerful

Ballast / Displacement Ratio

A measure of the stability of a boat's hull that suggests how well a monohull will stand up to its sails. The ballast displacement ratio indicates how much of the weight of a boat is placed for maximum stability against capsizing and is an indicator of stiffness and resistance to capsize.


Ballast / Displacement * 100

<40: less stiff, less powerful
>40: stiffer, more powerful
>350: ultraheavy

Displacement / Length Ratio

A measure of the weight of the boat relative to it's length at the waterline. The higher a boat’s D/L ratio, the more easily it will carry a load and the more comfortable its motion will be. The lower a boat's ratio is, the less power it takes to drive the boat to its nominal hull speed or beyond. Read more.


D/L = (D ÷ 2240) ÷ (0.01 x LWL)³

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds.
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
<100: ultralight
100-200: light
200-300: moderate
300-400: heavy
>400: very heavy
Comfort Ratio
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat

Comfort Ratio

This ratio assess how quickly and abruptly a boat’s hull reacts to waves in a significant seaway, these being the elements of a boat’s motion most likely to cause seasickness. Read more.


Comfort ratio = D ÷ (.65 x (.7 LWL + .3 LOA) x Beam1.33)

  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
  • LWL: Waterline length in feet
  • LOA: Length overall in feet
  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
<20: lightweight racing boat
20-30: coastal cruiser
30-40: moderate bluewater cruising boat
40-50: heavy bluewater boat
>50: extremely heavy bluewater boat
Capsize Screening
<2.0: better suited for ocean passages

Capsize Screening Formula

This formula attempts to indicate whether a given boat might be too wide and light to readily right itself after being overturned in extreme conditions. Read more.


CSV = Beam ÷ ³√(D / 64)

  • Beam: Width of boat at the widest point in feet
  • D: Displacement of the boat in pounds
<2: better suited for ocean passages
>2: better suited for coastal cruising
