AFTERGLOW | Morris M36 | 36ft


Portsmouth, RI, US


Morris Yachts and the legendary design firm of Sparkman and Stephens teamed up to produce a yacht of lasting beauty – a yacht that will grace any harbor and provide her owner with pride of ownership for many years. A combination of traditional aesthetics, heirloom quality craftsmanship and modern naval architecture and materials come together to produce a sailboat that is easy and rewarding to sail, beautiful to look at, and most of all, fun to be on.

AFTERGLOW is an excellent example that has seen only light summertime use on Martha’s Vineyard and has been stored inside every winter. She has the desirable LeisureFurl boom and many other options including laid teak decks and varnished cabin sides. The unique cockpit design allows one to operate all sail systems without leaving the helm, while family and friends enjoy the spacious, comfortable cockpit.                                  

AFTERGLOW is for sale by her original owners who are moving up to a larger yacht.
