MENEMSHA is a beautiful example of the Morris Ocean Series 46 that has been continuously maintained and upgraded. Her current owner did a significant refit at Morris Yachts in 2013 and had continued to upgrade her every year. Recent upgrades include a new engine, new electronics, new generator, new sails, new running rigging, new air conditioning, new fresh water plumbing throughout and new exterior varnish. She is in excellent condition and ready to take her next owners anywhere.
