INVISIBLE HAND is one of the last Morris Ocean Series 34’s built and has been sailed summers in New England and maintained in excellent condition. The 34 received not only the award for the best mid-sized cruiser when she was first introduced but was also unanimously voted the best overall cruising boat of the year. An ideal cruising boat for a couple, she is designed and built for safe and rewarding sailing and finished to a level of quality not often seen in today’s cruising boats. INVISIBLE HAND incorporates the best of the design and adds thoughtful and functional options by an experienced sailor. A carbon fiber mast and a sail plan that brings all of the control lines back to the cockpit for simple single handed sailing makes her a joy to sail. Just finishing up her winter work, she will be ready to go for the season and to bring smiles to her new owners on their first sail on her.
