The Morris Yachts M29 is a beautiful evolution from the success of her larger sister-ships, the M36 Daysailer and the M42 weekender. The M29 adheres to the emphasis on elegant simplicity with tiller steering and all lines led back to the cockpit for easy single handed sailing.
Y KNOT is a lightly used M29 that has spent her summers sailing in fresh water and her winters tucked inside a heated building. She is one of the few M29’s with an under deck autopilot and includes a custom trailer with an extension making it possible to launch the boat on a ramp directly from the trailer. She has just received new hull paint, new cushions, has had the mast and boom repainted and has a new North quick cover for the main. She has had her full winter service and is on the owner’s lift ready to go for the season. She also comes with a custom trailer, making her easier to move and store.
