I ABSOLUTLY Lust after the Morris 42. The interior layout is outstanding and she is just a beautiful yacht. I need to wait for the "pre-owned" market kicks in. The wife loves it as well, just not in the cards for now, and most likely not in the future either. But I sure can dream...........

Aww man.. Why's you have to go and mention the M42? I just went to look at it and now I want nothing else. MAN that's a pretty boat.

There is a 36 here in the seattle area. I luv the porn shots, in person, not as purrty as I thought it would be! maybe it was the ugly color combo!

Anyway, maybe a 42 would be a better option.....then again, right now, an X34, 35 or 37, dehler 34, SunFast 3200, dufour 34e appear to be the types of boats I would get that are affordible to a point with me. If I had 400-600K like the M36 or 42, Santa Cruz 37, Swan 42 or 45 would be in my slip!

I'd still love to see them in person. I just think the classic lines are really pretty.

Then again, who am I kidding. I can't even afford the 1975 O'Day 25 I've been drooling over.

I love the M line of boats; I think they (and the other luxury "daysailers") are actually rather practical. Expensive, sure, but how many folks who spend that much for any boat actually wind up spending more than a couple of nights aboard anyway? The marketing rationale is that for those that can afford that kind of boat, they will more than likely eat out and stay at a b&b in port anyway. They will also likely use their boats the way that most of us do anyway: daysails. Why pay for, maintain and haul around a floating condo if you never use it?

I was on one of the M boats at a boat show, and while talking with the young Morris employee, I discovered that he sails an Oday 25! I guess the employee discount didn't work for him.

The J105 had a similar design spec, ie go fast, be fun, 1d race, 5.5' head room, enough for the ave female, reasonable interior, but that the owner when crusing would hit B&B's or equal every few days etc with occasional stop at a park/bouy or anchor, and at a marina.

Reality is, like for me, the Jeanneau SunFast 3200 would work well too, easily sailible with two, designed that way, has hit 18 knots planing etc, not a lot of interior, but has over 6' of headroom......enough interior to do what I would need it to do for the most part. Not quite enough for the spouse.........but..........

I do see the reason for the M series and Alerion style boats, J has a more modern touch hull desing if you will on some of there models. All are good!

The 42 at the Annapolis Show was absolutly stunning from the butterfly hatches to the open interior. Bruckmamnn also makes a "Day Sailor" that I like...But if I had my choice on any of them, the Morris 42 would be in my slip. Perhaps in due time...I see they hold their residule value quite well.
