Morris Yachts and legendary design firm Sparkman and Stephens have once again teamed up to produce a yacht of lasting beauty – a yacht that will grace any harbor and provide her owner with pride of ownership for many years. Her Morris quality construction and finish, together with her S&S design pedigree will guarantee lasting service and value. 

Hull #4 is an absolutely immaculate example of a professionally maintained, original owner M42. She is adorned with teak decks and rigged with sought after stack pack & North main updated in 2016. Nice cruising features such as diesel furnace and inverter were also optioned when commissioned new.

Her Yanmar SD60 sail drive was replaced in 2018 while her 39hp Yanmar receives routine annual service. Recently her non-skid cabin top was re-painted and a new Fusion stereo was installed. Her bright Oyster white hull shows with a high luster finish thanks to continual buffing. Her topside color scheme is elegantly accented by Blueberry Sunbrella fabrics. With self-tacking jib, electric primary winches & autohelm she is kitted out and ready to sail into her next chapter. 


For additional consideration a 60ft slip in SF Marina is available for permanent transfer.
