Less than 80 Feet Sailing

Morris 57

Morris 57’, 57' Offshore Pilothouse Sloop 

Designed by the Fontaine Design Group-she was launched in August, 2008 at Morris Yachts in Northeast Harbor, Maine. She is the result of a collaborative effort between the Fontaine Design Group, Goetz Custom Boats and Morris Yachts.

 The concept for this design evolved from the owner’s desire to keep his yacht practical. The size has been chosen based on the interior necessities of the owner, as well as sail handling designed primarily towards single-handed or couple sailing. Emphasis for the design of the yacht is on exciting sailing performance, without sacrificing safety for speed. The draft for the boat is 5’75”, suitable for East Coast sailing with a keel centerboard hull form. The rig is a carbon fiber mast outfitted with an aluminum boom and a Leisurefurl “in boom” furling system.

 The interior of the yacht includes: a fully appointed walk-thru galley; main salon U shaped dinette with an up-down table to convert the space into additional sleeping berths; a bar area in the main salon; three cabins including a very comfortable aft owners cabin with oversized centerline berth, two comfortable seats, a desk/vanity with laptop capabilities and a head with an independent shower stall.
