When Charlie Morgan designed the Out Island 41, he created the perfect cruising vessel. Sought after for its stability and spacious accommodations, the Morgan Out Island 41 has proven to be the most popular boat over 40 ever built. It is simply an ideal classic cruising yacht. OBSESSION is a one-owner , beautifully maintained example of this comfortable passage-making vessel. Her shallow draft and protected cockpit are perfect for island cruising as you visit tropical anchorages and enjoy the breezes, or as you gunk-hole in favorite, out of the way places.

OBSESSION is an outstanding cruising classic that offers a 2 cabin/2 head layout, ensuring privacy for owners and their guests while they enjoy the generous salon and dining areas. This is a must-see opportunity to view this lovingly maintained yacht and to see why this is such a highly sought after design.

OBSESSION has fresh bottom paint (2015) and her hull has been professionally waxed (2016). She has been yard maintained and stored under a winter cover and is ready to go to her next home.
