Morris 42

The Morris 42 combined strong, safe, offshore voyaging characteristics with comfortable live-aboard space and an ease of handling. She was intended as the ultimate shorthanded offshore yacht with sufficient speed for racing potential. The design incorporated a traditional appearance above the waterline, a modern underbody, great sailing characteristics and a generous amount of interior volume for a traditional boat.

The interior accommodations are where the Morris 42 evolved significantly from her predecessor, the Morris 40. The spacious interior was optimized for two couples, with the occasional addition of a guest or two. The interior layout provides two private double sleeping cabins, a large head with separate shower stall, a well thought out galley close to the companionway, an outboard facing navigation station for efficient use of space and a truly elegant main salon.
