Well, this is one we absolutely can’t stop looking at – an absurdly beautiful 2008 Morris 57. CIRCE was custom built for a very experienced yachtsman through the collaborative efforts of Morris Yachts, Fontaine Design Group, and her owner and his captain. Exquisitely crafted, CIRCE was designed for long-distance cruising between New England and the tropics. At 57 feet, she is still easily handled by a couple, yet large enough to accommodate six people in luxurious comfort. Two guest cabins forward and a palatial Owner’s cabin aft make this center cockpit yacht feel like a bigger boat, yet her push-button hydraulics and well-thought-out mechanical systems make sailing and docking a breeze.
She’s extremely well-maintained, looking like she’s just been christened. She features a classic satin-varnished teak interior. Her bulkheads are teak veneered Meranti marine plywood abutting solid teak rails, stiles, corner posts and fiddles. The overhead throughout the boat is made with custom fiberglass white V-groove panels supported by custom varnished teak battens.
Her accommodations are simply luxurious, with the warmth of teak and plenty of natural light through ports and hatches. But she’s built for comfort on the long haul, with every imaginable piece of quality cruising kit.
Listed by Lyman Morse in Massachusetts, her price has recently been reduced to $999,000.
