The Morris Ocean Series 46 has the reputation of being an extremely comfortable and capable cruising sailboat that combines great performance with all the amenities required for a weekend cruise, blue water sailing or a global voyage.
SEAFORTH is a beautiful example of the Ocean Series 46 with two double berth cabins, a large aft head with separate shower and wet locker, a spacious galley and well laid out cockpit. She has been used seasonally in the Northeast and always stored inside a heated building and maintained to the highest standards by Morris Yachts. Featured in Frenc Mate’s book The World’s Best Sailboats, she has a wonderful herreshoff style interior with rich, gloss varnished mahogany trim. Currently in her inside storage building, she is easy to see and inspect.
