1968 Morgan 34 $15,000
Description Year: 1968
Builder: Morgan
Length: 34’
Engine/Fuel Type: Diesel
Located in: Marinette, WI
Hull Material: Fiberglass

Escapade is a classic Morgan 34. Her beautiful lines regularly draw comments. She is a full keel centerboarder. With her board up, her shallow draft (3’ 3”) allows her to sneak into any bay. With her board down (7’ 9”) and full keel, she points high and tracks straight. Her large cockpit makes her a great daysailer. And, she has room below for one couple or a small family on an extended cruise and two couples for the weekend. Always a fresh water boat, she has been maintained and upgraded through the years by her few owners. She sails well to her PHRF and is a safe and sea kindly cruiser. She is sail ready. New boat purchased; Escapade needs a new owner.
