2004 Morris Ocean Series 34

Stonington, Connecticut

$179,500

SHEARWATER is one of the coveted Morris Ocean Series 34's (hull #4 of 7), and is simply perfect.  For many knowledgable sailors, a Morris is the holy grail - the pedigree of design by Chuck Paine and construction by the Morris team is as good as it gets, with proven off shore capabilities, elegant lines, functional layout and construction details, both seen and unseen, that put Morris Yachts at the head of the fleet. In fact, this boat was awarded the "Boat of the Year" designation when introduced.

When you combine intelligent design with excellent build and then mix in proper care - you have the best possible situation.  And SHEARWATER has been maintained to perfection by owners (she has had the same owners since new) who have insisted on the finest level of care at one of the best boatyards in New England.  She has enjoyed heated indoor storage and full concierge service each winter, leaving her in impeccable condition.

Come take a look - you will not be disappointed.
