FrontRunners: Winds of Change

<< Back to Robb Report, November 2012

    Launched this summer in time for the company’s 40th anniversary, the Morris Yachts Ocean Series 48 GT (www.morrisyachts.com) marks a new era for this Maine-based boutique builder of sailing yachts. The 48 GT is the first model from the company’s next wave of performance vessels. It employs a larger rig than previous Morris models, to increase speed under sail. It also showcases the company’s self-tacking jib and a mainsail design that enables easier handling in heavy winds. The yacht, which has a starting price of about $1.25 million, can be customized, but the basic belowdecks layout includes two staterooms, a living area, and a full galley.
