Builder's Comments

M36 Modern ClassicIt is said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. When the M36 Modern Classic was first introduced in 2004, she was the only daysailer that featured a self-tacking jib, sail handling systems and helm control pods that are now often copied, but never perfected. Morris Yachts' quality construction, together with her Sparkman & Stephens design pedigree, guarantees a boat of lasting value that will turn heads in every harbor. SAILING SIMPLICITY AT ITS FINEST Long time single handed sailors love the M36 because within 5 minutes they can be off the dock and sailing. Beginners are equally as enthralled because the M36 is simple to sail, simple to learn on and immediately rewarding with her straightforward sail handling and control lines that are lead under deck to electric winches at the helmsman's fingertips. In addition, all instruments are intelligently arrayed to quickly provide all the information you need.

Hull and Deck

Sparkman & Stephens design heritage with renowned Morris Yachts build quality means that naval architecture, engineering, construction and finish are top of industry standard. Hand laid fiberglass hull with vinylester resin and structural foam core makes a stiff and light laminate. The foam cored deck is a one-piece part off a female mold. The teak decks (cockpit sole and weather decks) are glued to the fiberglass subdeck thus minimizing fasteners. The cockpit is designed for ease of sailing while also offering plenty of seating for guests. All lines are lead aft to the winch islands (with rope clutches) within arms reach of the helmsperson. Rapture has been improved for easier singlehanding: jib sheets are double ended and run directly to the electric secondaries while the main sheet is double ended at the electric primaries (both port and starboard) so both sails can be trimmed while driving from either side. The boom vang is also double ended and lead aft to cam cleats on both sides of the helm. The 5'3" fin keel with bulb adds 5300 lbs of ballast while the spade rudder, built of carbon fiber, allows finger tip steering. Hull is Awlgrip Flag Blue Boot stripe is Alwgrip Cream Bottom was stripped, barrier coated and two coats of Pettit Vivid antifouling applied (2023)
