Morgan Yachts History
Morgan Yachts was founded by Charles E. Morgan, who had a love for sailing his whole life. After having worked for a sail maker for a time, he started his own company, Morgan Racing Sails. His building and design expertise did not go unnoticed, as he was eventually commissioned by a man named Jack Powell to build a fiberglass yawl called PAPER TIGER, that was so successful, she won the Southern Ocean Racing Conference two years in a row. Due to the success of PAPER TIGER, Morgan wanted to build a smaller version, but was unable to find a manufacturer. This led to starting his own boat building company in 1962 – the Morgan Yacht Corporation.
Three years later, the first yacht was launched – the incredibly successful Morgan 34. Ten years later, in 1972, Morgan left the company and formed Heritage Yacht Corporation to design and build trawlers and sailing yachts. Eventually, Beatrice Foods purchased Morgan Yachts and later sold to Catalina Yachts in 1984, that produced the Morgan Out Island 41 and sold that model from 1986 to 1993. The Morgan name was then retired.
