SPARS AND RIGGING:
Morris Yachts and designer Chuck Paine have developed a center cockpit design for the traditional and very popular MY46. The traditional good looks and spaciousness of the aft cockpit MY46 lent itself perfectly to this adaptation. From toe rail down the Morris 46 Raised Salon is the oceangoing thoroughbred that is well known throughout the sailing world as a leader in integrity of performance, safety and sea keeping abilities. This raised salon deck version has dramatically increased the interior space and layout possibilities, offering Morris Yacht customers the opportunity to create precisely the layout that suits their needs.
On deck, the yacht is laid for ease of use, safety and comfort. She carries a high performance sail plan utilizing a non-overlapping jib, carbon spar, electric primary and halyard winches and a windlass with remote control in the cockpit. Navigation instruments are all interfaced with each other and are well located for visibility on the seahood and at the pedestal. The cockpit is large and has a secure feeling, with a walk-through at each coaming. The lazarette on the aft deck provides ample storage for sails, inflatable dingy, and related cruising equipment. A separate propane locker is located aft of the lazarette and accommodates three 10-lb bottles. A watertight bulkhead separates the forward stateroom from a foredeck locker, which is accessed by a Bomar hatch.
