2006 Morris M36 Daysailer

Southwest Harbor, Maine



SECONDARY PROTOCOL is a beautiful example of the Sparkman & Stevens designed Morris M36 Daysailer. One of the last designs that Olin Stephens worked on, the M36 is the epitome of elegant simplicity with a graceful combination of classic lines and modern design and boat building. All control lines are led under deck to two electric winches at the helm, allowing the boat to be easily sailed by one person without ever leaving the wheel while the large open cockpit with over six foot seats provide plenty of room for family and friends. A North Sails Quick Cover integrated with the lazyjacks and a self-tacking roller furled jib make setting sail quick and easy.
