Morris’ M29X is a turbocharged version of the builder’s M29 daysailer. Go-fast features include a taller Hall carbon fiber rig, North Sails 3Di sails, a carbon fiber wheel and bowsprit, a carbon/Kevlar epoxy hull and slick racing bottom paint.
The M29X’s long, deep cockpit provides a safe and secure feeling underway. Sail controls — halyards, vang, outhaul, jib sheets, etc. — are all led aft and are easy at hand , making single-handing stressfree. There are no winches aboard, thanks to engineering that reduces sheet loads. Teak decking and varnished teak toerails, dorade boxes, handrails, eyebrow and coaming trim give the carbon-filled M29X the look of a traditional yacht.
Below is a simple, cozy cabin designed more for afternoon naps than overnighters, but that is done in the luxurious and good-looking style Morris is known for. The M29X has utility space forward in the bow, as well as room for a portable head and cooler in her finished cabin space.
