Performance & Beauty

The M52 is newly born from the incredible success of our other M-Series models. With input from our owners, we worked with Sparkman & Stephens to design a classically styled cruising boat that retains all of the great ease of handling features and sailing performance of the M36 and M42. The M52 also provides luxurious accommodations below with 2- and 3-cabin layouts, and an even larger cockpit with more generous seating. This boat has a real sense of adventure about her that is balanced with the craftsmanship and quality from Morris that makes our owners (and their families) feel confident and safe, no matter where they sail.


Easy to Sail

The M52 showcases cruising amenities and exquisite craftsmanship typically only seen on superyachts many times her size. Morris classic styling and Sparkman & Stephens design pedigree combine to produce a unique vessel in this size range, providing the perfect solution to an owner looking for super yacht standards but without the need for paid crew. Sail handling has been thoroughly engineered for simplicity, reliability and ease of use with discreet below deck line-control systems run to the one-man cockpit command center at the helm. Her generous fractional rig with self-tacking jib makes for a sail plan that is powerful yet remarkably easy to control- even by a crew of just one. The M52s sail plan is as simple to control as the M42 or M36.

Interior Opulence

The stunning interior with full standing headroom is finished by Morris craftsmen to the owner’s taste, making each M52 as individual as her owner. Popular interior choices include antique white bulkheads, solid cherry joinery trim and hull sheathing in gloss varnish. The owner’s stateroom features a queen size center line berth and full height hanging locker, bureau and dresser. Natural light floods the interior from the large butterfly hatch in the salon and the U-shaped cherry drop-leaf table dinette with its plush contoured cushions invites you to comfortably lounge or dine with your guests.

Two or Three Cabin Layout

The M52 is fully customizable with a 2 or 3 cabin layout option, so whether it’s just you and your spouse, or the entire family, the M52 is versatile and accommodating.

Coastal Voyager

Like her smaller M42 sistership, the M52 offers a great coastal cruising platform. The 2 or 3 cabin layout provides great accommodation for friends and family and the permanently mounted cockpit table with full length cockpit seats affords maximum comfort for guests. In addition, the rotating table and pull out settee converts the saloon area into a spacious double berth.


As with all sailing boats built by Morris Yachts, the M52 offers peace of mind. You are onboard one of the most seaworthy boats in the world. Setting the industry standard, Morris Yachts’ level of engineering, fit and finish sets the benchmark by which other builders measure themselves. Morris craftsmen and engineers demand only the finest equipment and use the most modern techniques and technology during the boat building process proving that the beauty of a Morris is not only skin deep but integrated throughout all facets of the vessel.
