Morris – M36

Maine, United States

Sweet’n Low is an excellent example of the elegant simplicity that made has made the M36 the most popular model built by Morris Yachts and perhaps the perfect daysailer.  Blending traditional aesthetics with modern materials and naval architecture and heirloom quality craftsmanship, the M36 is designed to be easily handled by one person while providing a large, comfortable cockpit for family and friends. A Dutchman system on the main sail provides clean lines and simple sailhandling.  Down below, a simple open interior includes everything needed for an overnight with an enclosed head, basic galley and two full length settees.
