48' MORRIS 48 (2005) OFF MARKET
Since their founding in 1972, Morris yachts have earned a reputation as the epitome of traditional-styled cruising sailboats. However, in many ways the MY48 is anything but traditional. One look at her and you know that this is a 21st-century product. The 30-year-old Morris philosophy that developed a broad range of traditionally designed and constructed sailboats might appear out of step by their latest design concepts. Building a lighter weight hull, engineered for strength and long legs at sea, carries forward their tradition built on past experience. The 486 hull was engineered with bi-axial knitted fabrics, longitudinal and transverse structural members and reinforced with unidirectional fabrics and vinylester resin throughout. The Morris RIB-CORE approach to hull and deck construction INCLUDES the additional strength and rigidity of the entire interior structure joined to hull and deck in a MONOCOQUE structure.
