Project: Morgan 33 Dinghy

Morgan presents its new entry level boat project, the 33 Dinghy which will be launched during the coming Summer. It is an open, almost 10 meters in length, inaugurating a new range of traditional boats called Dinghies, present alongside the Lobster and the Fast Commuters. The 33 Dinghy is a support vessel for both sailing and motor Super Yachts addressing the need of the owner and guests to move quick with a roomy agile boat, but it also proposes itself also as an elegant and dynamic day cruiser. The Aicon Group Morgan Style Center is responsible for the design of the Dinghy 33, whereas the hull was designed by Alfredo Magazz├╣. In keeping with the Morgan philosophy, the new model succeeds to maintain the founding characteristics of the models of the range unchanged, combining classic taste, seafaring technology, and high performance. On the one hand, the use of the best essences of wood and the most precious fabrics render it unique; on the other, the design of the hull, planned to guarantee maximum stability and smooth sailing even in moderate sea. The helm console, positioned at the center of the boat, is equipped with sophisticated instruments and a hi-fi stereo system including an iPod player. It is covered by an elegant roll bar with canopy, under which, behind the double seater command post, a small galley with stove, sink and bar with fridge can be found. Immediately behind it, in the center of the stern sundeck, there is a five person c-shaped settee with a folding dining table. From the sundeck, it is easy to get into the water thanks to the stern staircase that access to the bathing platform that becomes a real terrace on sea. The surface of the sundeck continues on towards bow and it is protected by a wooden handrail that allows for safe cruising even at high speeds. In this area, below deck, there is a cabin with V-positioned twin beds which can be converted at need into a queen-size bed, equipped with two wardrobes. The bathroom, is located under the center console, with access from the ample hatch at bow of the same console. The 33 Dinghy is equipped with two 190hp stern drive engines, which allow it to reach a cruising speed of 32 knots and a maximum of 38 knots. For those who want more speeds, a twin Yamaha 250hp outboard option is available pushing the small Morgan to a maximum speed of 45 knots. The Dinghy 33 is available with the entire new Morgan 2009 ten color range and a Sport Fishing Kit is also available transforming it into a sport fisherman, without losing any of the unmistakable elegance of the small Morgan traditional cruiser.

  4. Hello,
    I am sorry to tell that Aicon Group which had the Morgan yard in its portfolio has gone bankrupt since about a year. I have tried to check if there is any brokerage 33 in the market but no luck. I would suggest you to have a look at some models from MJM, Hinckley, and San Juan in this size. Follow the link on Traditional Cruisers if you want to find out more.
    Hope I was helpful!
    Regards
