Liberty 44 Overview
Her hull has a sharp deeply V shaped entry which turns aft into moderate deadrise. A perfectly positioned spray rail does a beautiful job of knocking down spray and keeping her crew dry. Moderate displacement and beam enable this hull to slice through waves and chop with an absolute minimum of fuss and a flat wake – the telltale signs of a properly designed planing hull. The propeller and rudder are protected by a skeg, which also provides the Liberty 36 with terrific tracking and directional stability. The Liberty 36’s Morris Yachts quality construction and finish, together with her Chuck Paine design pedigree will guarantee lasting service and value.
The interior is finished in Morris Yachts classic Herreshoff style, with white bulkheads and solid cherry joiner work with satin varnish finish. The cabin sole is teak with contrasting maple stripes and a satin urethane finish for durability. The galley is complete with a propane countertop stove, DC refrigerator/freezer, Corian countertop, with undermounted polished SS sink and hot and cold pressure water. The enclosed head includes a Vacuflush toilet, Corian countertop with an oval SS sink, hot and cold pressurized water, wall mount thermostatically controlled shower and overhead hatch for ventilation. In the salon, the port settee is designed for comfortable lounging or sleeping. The cherry drop-leaf table provides an area for comfortable indoor dining. Forward of the salon, bi-fold louvered doors lead to a comfortable v-berth for overnighting.

“Every Morris owner wants to know more about their boat and more about how they can use it. What better way to learn than being taught on your own boat by the people who built it.” said Cuyler Morris. “We believe this program is just another example of the commitment we place behind our owners and we are proud to offer it exclusively to every owner of a Morris Yacht.”
