Morris Yacht M52 Takes First Sail Into Bay Area Waters

Yacht 2Bay Area, say hello to the the stunning Morris Yacht’s M52 Modern Classic. The M52 took her inaugural West Coast sail and Christening Ceremony on May 7 as San Francisco prepares for America’s Cup Action.

Arrival of the M52 provided the “first sail” for the 52-foot vessel, which took to the waters after a two-week and nearly 3,500-mile cross-country trip from the Morris Yachts world headquarters in Maine.

Luxury aficionados can certainly appreciate this “jewel on the bay.”  These yachts carry a standard of meticulous attention to detail, timeless design, technological innovation and uncompromised luxury; this true American beauty pays homage to the bygone “Golden Years” of sailing.

The VIP Christening party furthered Morris Yachts’ affiliation with The America’s Cup.  Last year, the M52 served as the official VIP Spectator Boat for Artemis Racing during the America’s Cup World Series in Newport, RI, and has garnered international attention in the sailing world. The M52, the largest yacht in the internationally-acclaimed M-Series line, was the winner of last month’s Classic Boat magazine’s Sprit of Tradition Award in London, England.
