Nothing stimulates the senses and stirs the soul quite like the new M-Series M46 from Morris Yachts. Whether you are charging to windward like a thoroughbred, or stargazing from the large cockpit in a still anchorage, the M46 is more than just a boat. She’s a living, breathing work of art that will take care of you offshore, pamper you on the hook, and turn heads in any harbor you enter. 

Morris-interior

The most versatile M-Series yacht that Morris Yachts has ever created, the M46 is a breathtaking, high-performance classic yacht designed to accommodate the lifestyle of today’s modern sailor. Her new innovative, performance-oriented hull welcomes the rigors of extended coastal cruising, her copious flush-mounted hatches flood the well-designed interior space with light and, for the first time on any M-Series yacht, her fold-down transom steps provide excellent access to the water from the cockpit. 

With a two-cabin ensuite interior, she is a true modern classic built for both performance racing and luxurious cruising.

State of the art sailing performance cleverly disguised as a classic beauty.

Thoughts from a Bluewater Newbie

I arrived on the docks of Beaufort, North Carolina, in late April with two backpacks filled with new gear—everything I’d need for my first offshore passage. Though I’d been sailing for 16 years, graduating from dinghies to keelboats to a J/122, I’d spent my time racing and, in ...read more
