Manufacturer Provided Description

The Morris Yachts, M36, designed by Sparkman and Stephens, is a 36' traditional, classic styled boat intended for short or single-handed sailing. Whether you are going for a day sail or a weekend, this S&S design produced with Morris Yachts quality and the latest in quality engineering materials will deliver performance sailing that is fun, comfortable, and simple. It is a classically designed yacht of moderate proportions, timeless sheer and long graceful overhangs. A modest cabin is incorporated into the design which contains a vanity head, a galley with sink, 12-volt refrigerator and storage space for provisions. The port and starboard settees are carefully designed for lounging or sleeping. Generous storage can be found in the forepeak. An alternative layout converts the forepeak space into a v-berth.Sail handling has been thoroughly engineered for simplicity, reliability, and ease of use. All control lines, sheets and halyards have been led below the deck to control/winch pods located in the cockpit. Self-tailing primary winches are standard. The starboard winch is electric, which makes raising the mainsail from the cockpit a breeze. The only sheets running above deck are for the optional cruising gennaker. These are led aft to a location handy to the helmsman and are controlled by self-tailing manual winches. All of these features allow the helms-person to comfortably single-hand the boat whenever that is their preference. Forward of the control pods are spacious port and starboard cockpit seats that are over six feet in length. They are comfortably suitable for seating six adults. Cockpit seat hatches on all three seats allow access to the lazarette. Guests may lounge in the comfort and safety of this spacious cockpit.The hull and appendages are designed and built for fast and nimble performance under both power and sail. Exterior styling is traditional with gelcoat deckhouse and gloss varnished exterior teak including the toe rail, coaming cap, eyebrow trim and cabin top handrails. The deck is finished in non-skid and the cockpit sole is finished with teak decking. All mechanical installations are simple and straightforward. A Yanmar 21hp Saildrive engine with 2-blade Flex-o-Fold propeller is standard for auxiliary propulsion. Wind, depth and speed instrumentation are standard. A complete owner's manual is included.

Additional Information



Abbey Road is a beautiful eIxample of the Sparkman & Stevens designed Morris M36 Daysailer.One of the last designs that Olin Stephens worked on, the M36 is the epitome of elegant simplicity with a graceful combination of classic lines and modern design and boat building. All control lines are led under deck to two winches at the helm, allowing the boat to be easily sailed by one person without ever leaving the wheel while the large open cockpit with over six foot seats provide plenty of room for family and friends. A full batten main sail with lazyjacks and a self-tacking roller furled jib make setting sail quick and easy.

Abbey Road was customized during the build process to include upgraded B&G 3000 electronics system, beautiful teak cladding on the truck cabin and cockpit coamings, teak decking on the side decks, cockpit and cockpit seats and much more.
