Morris Yachts, headquartered in Northeast Harbor, ME, have announced an update to the flagship M-Series lineup. Both M-Series and M-Series X-Type yachts will now be built in epoxy-infused carbon from bow to stern. The move to epoxy will increase resin strength by 40%, improving upon the lively performance, stiffness and rigidity of these iconic Sparkman & Stephens-designed yachts.

“This is the most significant update to the M-Series since the unveiling of the M36 in 2003,” said Jay Stockmann, Vice President of Morris Yachts at The Hinckley Company. “The Hinckley Company has invested in vacuum-infused epoxy, allowing us to move the whole boat to carbon and Kevlar™ while retaining the classic lines that our Morris owners adore.”
Morris Yachts is also partnering with the renowned Manchester Yacht Group in Manchester, MA for U.S. sales. “We are really excited to partner with Morris Yachts,” said Don Brophy, President of Manchester Yacht Group. “These are iconic yachts that discerning sailors adore.” Stockmann added, “Manchester Yacht Group is very highly regarded in the industry, having built their name as the top sales team at Alerion Yachts for many years.” For more infomation, log onto MorrisYachts.com.
