Morris 42x

Morris Yachts has put a performance spin on the award winning classic lines of the M 42.

September 20, 2015

Morris Yachts has taken the classic elegant lines of the M42 and dialed up the performance with the M42x. A partnership with Sparkman and Stephens, the 42x was optimized by some of the top designers in the world for both elegance and performance.

Sporting a carbon rig and sprit, high-aspect fin keel and a larger sail plan than the 42, the 42x combines the award winning style of Morris with the latest performance technology.

Below deck, the Morris sports a forward V-berth and a small galley, ideal for short stays onboard. Cherry trim and attention to details like the brass clock and barometer enhance the classic essence.


Morris has proven the winning design of the 42 series with a number of awards, including a Cruising World Boat of the Year award for the original M42 in 2007.
