*Sees a Morris, jaw hits floor*

Seriously, those are some beautiful boats. I'm in love. Keep em coming guys

My only reality check about those Morris yachts is that from my humble observation they seem to be aimed almost solely at the gentleman daysailer, and not a true long haul cruising. They just look cramped inside and lack some of the industriousness that I see in the Island Packets which seem to be aimed solely at cruisers with things like showers, large tankage, bulky bowspirits supporting 2 anchors, etc. It would be a crime against humanity to put a dingy or a lot of ground hardware on those Morrisses
You're looking at the wrong "Series" of Morris yachts...

They used to build cruising boats, but the Market has spoken, there's more money in Faberge Egg Trophy Daysailors these days... :)

Although it's a powerboat, the remarkable success (and astonishing profit margin) of the Hinckley Picnic Boat changed the high-end production boatbuilding industry forever...
