LIONHEART is a beautiful example of the Sparkman & Stephens-designed Morris M36 Daysailer. One of the last designs that Olin Stephens worked on, the M36 is the epitome of elegant simplicity, with a graceful combination of classic lines, modern design and boat building. All control lines are led under deck to two winches at the helm, allowing the boat to be easily sailed by one person without ever leaving the wheel, while the large open cockpit with over six-foot seats provides plenty of room for family and friends.
Price Reduced CLIMATE CHANGE is a wonderful example of the successful Morris M36 design that redefined the Day Sailer market. All sailing controls are led to the helm. A spacious cockpit arrangement and self-tacking headsail mean you and your guests can relax. Electric main halyard and sheet winches make sailing nearly effortless. Perhaps one of the biggest attributes of the design is “Simplicity”. Getting underway, sailing, and putting the boat away at the end of the day could not be easier. Sailing an M36 is a dream.
