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.
