Builder/Manufacturer Morris Yachts

SYRENA is the newest M36 on the market and is in near perfect condition. Used for two summers in fresh water and stored inside the rest of the year, she has been professionally maintained and includes a custom trailer. SYRENA was highly customized during her build to enhance both the beautiful aesthetic of the boat as well as the sailing performance. A lighter, taller, high modulus carbon fiber spar combine with a deeper keel and North 3Di sails for excellent performance while clean lines above deck and exquisite craftsmanship below result in a stunning example of the M36.

SYRENA incorporates all the attributes of the M36 that set the standard by which other daysailors are measured – from the beautiful lines drawn by S&S to the heirloom quality craftsmanship of Morris Yachts to the simplicity and elegance in sail handling with all lines run under deck to winches right at the helm. The owner of SYRENA worked with Morris and Tack Studios to further refine the details above and below through thoughtful and tasteful details in design and materials resulting in a beautiful boat that will bring many years of enjoyment on the water.
