About this Sailboat:
The prototype of this yacht was designed by Charles Morgan in the early 60’s as a custom yacht for yachtsman James B. Turner for whom Morgan later designed the 72′ Big Toy. “Ginger” won over 100 trophies as a Gulf of Mexico racer in the 1960’s. Only 5 were ever built and Ginger may be the last one left of these wonderful racer/cruisers. She is also a small live-aboard boat. My wife and I lived aboard during a six month cruise through the Florida Keys. She has also made the crossing to the Bahamas. A wonderfully stable boat with 2500 lbs of lead in her keel. The swing keel design produces a draft on only 2’10” with the centerboard up and 7’6″ with the centerboard down.
