The Morris Yachts M42 takes the excitement of our smaller M-Series boats and applies it to a real weekend cruiser. Designed in partnership with Sparkman & Stephens, the M42 can be built with our distinct standard or short trunk cabin deck configurations (distinguishable by eight versus six port lights). Both models retain the ease of handling features and classic beauty Morris is known for and, in fact, the M42 hit her mark so well that Tom Morris built one for himself and spent a year aboard cruising up and down the US Eastern Seaboard. The M42 combines substantial interior volume for luxurious accommodations below with a large cockpit providing generous seating for family and friends. Ideal for afternoon cruising, weekend getaways and beyond, the M42 is a yacht that will grace any harbor and provide pride of ownership for many years to come.
