Southwest Harbor, Maine (OCTOBER 9, 2014) – Morris Yachts, America’s premier builder of sailing yachts from 29-to-80 feet, makes its comeback to the US Sailboat Show in Annapolis to debut its new Ocean Series 48 GT, marking Morris’ renewed commitment to its line of performance cruisers.
The Ocean Series 48 GT – for Grand Touring – pulls forward the award-winning design by Chuck Paine with hundreds of changes and innovations to the interior, rig, appendages, and cockpit to satisfy even the most demanding bluewater sailor. She is a true offshore performance cruiser offering both speed and comfort for the cruising and racing family.
A completely new and innovative interior has been maximized to provide a light and airy living area with plenty of room for storage and tankage. Key features include a raised salon, side berth and nav station all with panoramic views, a lower full-service galley with the company’s first cross-beam utility station, and a generous en-suite owners cabin with a superyacht inspired circular shower.
