From the moment you step aboard, it’s immediately evident why Morris Yachts are so highly regarded. You’ll find your eyes wandering to the many details components and

Anywhere you look, you’re eyes will be rewarded with nothing but the most critical attention to details using nothing but the highest quality hardware, joinery and fasteners.

The Morris Annie performs beautifully in all conditions. With her tiller steering, she is responsive and light on her heels but is a very safe and capable design in the heaviest of seas. Her layout offers comfortable accommodations with all of the storage and creature comforts required for extended cruising or ocean passages.

The owners have loved and sailed “Annie” for 27 seasons on the lovely waters of Cape Cod Bay having purchased her in June 1991.  She was Chuck Paine’s own boat.  She has been stored each winter indoors; the gelcoat professionally waxed each year and otherwise cared for in a manner befitting her beauty.  The owner is only parting with her to get a smaller Paine designed boat that’s right for his eighties.


This is truly a rare gem indeed that will turn heads in every harbor she visits.


Don't miss this one!
