2001 Morris 34 designed by Chuck Paine and fitted out and completed by Victoria Yachts, UK

The first Morris 34 to be built by Morris Yachts was exhibited at the 1999 Annapolis Boat Show and voted Cruising Worlds Overall Cruising Yacht of the Year.
The judges noted that the boat embodied many features that designers and builders should be encouraged to promote with an excellent balance between hull form, superstructure and rig.

This example of the Morris 34 was commissioned to the precise instructions of the first and still current owner and has proved to be the perfect cruising yacht.
Fully equipped for coastal hops or serious passage making, this Morris 34 is first and foremost a sailing yacht with no compromise of form over function.

With a beautifully finished interior, deep and safe cockpit plus an easy to handle sail plan, this Morris 34 appears ready to go wherever her next owners care to venture.

On her berth here at Premier Marina, Swanwick, this Morris 34 is available to view 7 days a week by prior appointment.
Please contact Ancasta, Swanwick on +44 (0) 1489 854455 or email for further information and to arrange your viewing.
Please do contact us before travelling as this Morris 34 is still in commission and used occasionally by her owner.
