2000 Morris 45
Firefly can truly do it all. Designed by Chuck Paine and built by Morris Yachts, she defines what a cruiser-racer should be. The joinery and construction are exquisite throughout, and the raised deck and large salon windows give the elegance below a feeling of spaciousness and light. The carbon mast and boom spread a powerful sailplan, and the bulb keel provides plenty of sail carrying ability. Firefly has been a successful racer throughout her life, ranging from the East Coast to the Caribbean, England and across the Pacific. More importantly, she has carried family crews in safety and comfort on extensive cruises. In 2018 she was equipped for the Vic Maui race with a new set of sails and updated safety equipment, and last year she received new topsides paint and varnish. Price is $450,000.
