Morris Yachts’ M29 is a beautiful and logical evolution of the impressive success of her smaller sister-ships, the M36 daysailer and the M42 weekender. The M29 adheres faithfully to the fundamental philosophy laid down for the M-Series line of modern classics: classic beauty, true ease of handling under sail and under power, and emphasis on the fundamentals of a comfortable sailing experience for all onboard.
Designed by Sparkman & Stephens, the boat is a graceful combination of classic style, the latest in naval architecture and modern boatbuilding materials. While intended for short or single-handed sailing, the M29 has a generous cockpit making her a comfortable platform for sailing with friends. Her Morris Yachts quality construction and finish, together with her S&S design pedigree will guarantee lasting service and value.
Easy to rig, launch, and sail, the M29 can be raced easily by a crew of three. Weight reduction and management were top priorities addressed by 100% resin infusion construction of the hull, deck and all internal structures. The carbon spar and rudder are built from Pre-Preg carbon and cooked in an autoclave. All control systems have been designed for the lowest loads possible so that not only is she a snappy racer, but all ages and skill levels can enjoy her agile and responsive performance.

Interior Finish & Layout
The interior fits the boat’s purpose: to be an elegant daysailer with comfortable accommodations for an overnight. The M29’s interior is finished simply with easy to clean and maintain white surfaces balanced with just the right amount of varnished cherry joinery and a teak cabin sole in the “Morris” tradition. When sailing is complete drop the hook, and the port and starboard cockpit seats are perfect for stretching out to read a book, have a picnic or simply enjoy the scenery and company. A small cabin contains full-length port and starboard settees with cushions, satin varnished cherry interior trim, hull sheathing and plenty of forepeak storage space. Below is the perfect place to stow picnics, sail bags and a great place to nap.
