About the Boat: When Catalina Yachts bought Morgan Yachts, Frank Butler decided to make the Morgan Out Island 41, which was a great party platform, but not a great sailboat. He put on a new underbody with a cut-away skeg and hung rudder. Now the boat can actually tack, an interesting new concept for that model. He also did what he was one of the best at and made it more efficient to build. Learn more from the Lady K Podcast, The Real Cruising Sailboat – Morgan – Episode 115.

About the Name: The Morgan 41 is an amazingly comfortable and reassuring boat to sail. After a day’s sail, we invariably, and our guests as well, would say, “What a heavenly day“. Thus the boat named itself. To quote Patty Griffin: “all that we really have to do Is have ourselves, a heavenly day“.

Formerly Pumalin

Pumalin was named by the former owner and his wife. The Pumalín Douglas Tompkins National Park was very dear to them. The park (Spanish: Parque nacional Pumalín Douglas Tompkins) is a 1,000,000-acre national park in Chile, created by Tompkins Conservation, which was endowed and led by the American business magnate Doug Tompkins and his wife, former CEO of Patagonia, Inc., Kris Tompkins.
Designated a Nature Sanctuary in 2005, Parque Pumalín was Chile’s largest private nature reserve and operated as a public-access park, with an extensive infrastructure of trails, campgrounds, and visitor centers.
