Morgan dealers asked for a keel sloop of modest size and price for buyers who did not need the shoal draft afforded by center-boards, the sleek Morgan 33 was our answer. Fast in a wide range of wind and sea conditions the flashy little sloops ran up a good record before the CCA rule was abandoned. Production of the M-33 was limited and was terminated shortly after the IOR rating rules came into effect.

OUTRAGEOUS shown here came within two minutes of winning the Miami to Nassau Ocean Race in the hands of Charley Morgan and crew in the first season they were out. It could have been Charley's fourth Miami Nassau win ... but a vicious squall, a wild spinnaker roll out, and parted spinnaker halyard changed what might have been.
