The Hinckley Company acquires Morris Yachts

Hinckley Yachts acquired the assets of Morris Yachts on Friday, Jan. 1. Hinckley indicated it plans to continue using the Morris brand as it absorbs Morris’ boat-building and service operations in eastern Maine.

“Both companies build fine quality yachts within a quarter mile of each other in Trenton, Maine,” Hinckley wrote in the release. “With the new arrangement, about 380 craftsmen, engineers and technicians will provide a deep pool of talent for the building of world-class yachts. “

Hinckley Yachts, founded in Southwest Harbor in 1928, makes luxury sailing and power yachts. In the 88 years since then, the company has expanded to include facilities in Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey and Rhode Island. It has eight service yards along the East Coast and counts 1,500 Hinckley yacht owners and 5,000 service customers among its worldwide clientele.

In 1998, Hinckley opened a manufacturing facility off Route 3 in Trenton where it builds power picnic boats. Hinckley itself was acquired by Scout Partners LLC at the end of 2010.

Morris Yachts , a smaller company with about two dozen employees, was founded 40 years ago and has built more than 300 sailboats. Morris, which bills itself as “America’s premier builder of sailing yachts from 29 to 80 feet,” last year hired a new CEO in Pete Carroll and opened a new waterfront service yard in Falmouth.

Morris officials were not immediately available Tuesday morning for comment. With the acquisition, Morris Yacht owners can now bring their boats for servicing at any of Hinckley’s facilities along the East Coast, Hinckley officials indicated.

Roe O’Brien, director of marketing for Hinckley, said Tuesday that no other immediate operational changes have been planned as a result of the acquisition. She said additional details about the purchase were not available but that more information may be released sometime in the near future.

“We’re thrilled to have the companies join hands,” O’Brien said. “We’re delighted to have another great Maine brand in the family.”

Morris Yachts Designs and History

By Bob Marston Partner, Wellington Yacht Partners

In 1972 Tom Morris left his previous life in Philadelphia to pursue his passion of boat building. At that time I’m sure he wouldn’t have imagined his vision would someday result in the establishment of Morris Yachts, one of America’s finest yacht brands.

Tom Morris embarked on his craft building Friendship sloops in Southwest Harbor, Maine. He purchased the fiberglass hulls and decks from Jarvis Newman and fit out the boats under the Morris name. I remember his son Cuyler telling me how he and Tom would literally go into the woods and hand select the spruce trees to be used for the spars.

In 1974 Tom connected with designer Chuck Paine, who was promoting a new design. It was the Francis 26, a robust double ender with excellent sea handling characteristics, capable of sailing anywhere. As the relationship between Tom and Chuck grew, so did the model offerings with the Linda 28, Annie 29, Leigh 30 and the Justine 36 Series soon after.

In the late 1980s the company started to focus more on its cruising yachts. These were the Morris Ocean Series 38, 42, 44 and 46 Models. The Morris Ocean Series were great-performing, aft cockpit, trunk cabin style sailing yachts with pretty lines and exquisite craftsmanship. The success and quality of these designs soon gained recognition in the yachting community, and Morris Yachts found itself with owners  throughout the world.

In 1999 Morris Yachts expanded their production capacity by purchasing the Able boatyard in Trenton, Maine. At the same time they added a series of Offshore Cruiser Racer models with the Morris Ocean  45, 48 and 52RS. One of the most notable boats was FIREFLY, a Morris Ocean Series 45, which did extremely well in distance races.

In 2004 Morris Yachts announced its Sparkman and Stephens designed Morris M36 that set the bar for the luxury day sailor market. The Morris M36’s beautiful over-hangs and low profile cabin top were an instant classic.  A performance keel, spade rudder and fractional carbon rig made the M36 a pleasure to sail, and the huge cockpit was enough to take three couples for an afternoon sail easily.

The success of the Morris M36 soon spun off into other models… the Morris M29, Morris M42 and Morris M52.  A standard feature of all the M Series was the ability for the helmsman to handle all control lines from the wheel, making the yachts truly able to be singlehanded, while keeping guests in the cockpit free from entanglement.

After some 45 years of boat building, one thing is for certain:  The Morris Family is passionate about sailing, and anyone who has had the chance to get aboard a Morris Yacht will agree.

At Wellington Yacht Partners we know Morris Yachts and their clientele well. We are happy to discuss the differences between models and share our own experiences with these fine yachts.

Morris Yachts: Ranger

Supercharged sailing performance.

morris yachts maine

“We’re in a world today where everybody wants more performance in their computer, their car, their home security system,” said company owner Cuyler Morris. “They want things to go faster and work more easily.”

The M-Series, designed by Sparkman & Stephens, debuted in 2004 with the M36. The idea was to deliver performance sailing that is easy and comfortable in a classically styled yacht. Lengths ranging from 28 to 52 feet have followed; 135 have been built. The line has won several top awards for its marriage of beauty and performance.

The concept for the X started incubating quite a few years ago. 

“Over time, you look in the rearview mirror and say, ‘We can do this or that to take the product up a level,’” Morris said.

So Morris went back to Sparkman & Stephens to push the M-Series design envelope to obtain maximum sailing performance in all conditions, while also making every effort to keep modifications within reasonable financial limits. Features include a taller high-modulus carbon-fiber rig from Hall Spars, high-performance 3Di sails from North Sails, and Harken Performa Racing winches. A deeper high-aspect-ratio stainless-steel fin keel with a fitted lead bulb maximizes stability and enhances sail-carrying ability, while taking additional weight out of the boat. A carbon-fiber and teak wheel delivers fingertip control, and a bowsprit was added to improve gennaker performance. An optional custom carbon roller-furling boom, manufactured by Leisure Furl, is also available.

Weight has been removed by using resin infusion on the hull and covering the deck with simple non-skid rather than teak, although customers have the option to install teak decks in keeping with the classic styling of the M-Series. The hull is faired to ultra-precise tolerances and covered with drag-reducing bottom paint. Like the standard M-Series, the interior is built Herreshoff style, with antique white bulkheads and gloss varnished cherry joinery. 

The idea came to fruition in earnest in 2014, when a prototype M29x and M36x were built. The most recent in the series to splash was an M42x named Ranger, launched in July 2015 for a repeat customer who summers in Southwest Harbor. 

“This particular client is probably 90 percent races,” said Morris, “and 10 percent day sails. He’s keen for anything that’s going to make for a fast boat.”

Morris estimates the enhanced features increase upwind sailing performance by at least 10 percent, and downwind by 30 percent. “The end result,” he said, “is the boat sails a hell of a lot faster.”      

Laurie Schreiber has written for newspapers and magazines on the coast of Maine for more than 20 years.

Alpha 328' Morris 1988

This vessel is no longer on the market.

  "Morris Yachts is well known for building sailboats that border on floating works of art. From this all-American builder comes the Linda 28 which was introduced in 1985 from drawing board of Chuck Paine, one of America's pre-eminent naval architects. The Linda 28 is a fast and nimble pocket cruiser built on a custom basis for customers with an outstanding fit and finish, the kind you'd expect from Morris Yachts." ~ Blue Water Boats

  

Alpha Three is a rare find with her new Awlgrip paint job in 2020, varnish work in progress, repower in 2018, new Doug Pope genoa in 2019, new Doug Pope asymmetrical spinnaker in sock that has never been flown and a custom built trailer that will convey with the boat. Exceptional well built by talented Maine craftsmen, lovingly maintained and easily transported Alpha 3 is an exceptional opportunity.

Morris linda 28.

  "Morris Yachts is well known for building sailboats that border on floating works of art. From this all-American builder comes the Linda 28 which was introduced in 1985 from drawing board of Chuck Paine, one of America's pre-eminent naval architects. The Linda 28 is a fast and nimble pocket cruiser built on a custom basis for customers with an outstanding fit and finish, the kind you'd expect from Morris Yachts. Perhaps best of all she's got the same drop dead handsome lines that have won over Morris lovers worldwide." ~ Blue Water Boats 

Designers Notes

   "The new Morris 28 is my latest design for Morris Yachts of Southwest Harbor, Maine. She is intended to combine the robust construction, ample tankage and unsurpassed directional and transverse stability demanded by a growing Bermuda and Beyond clientele, with fully modern, computer optimized hull lines and weight distribution to please the coastal cruisers and yacht club racers. The 28' overall length was selected in order comfortably accommodate four adults for brief periods (or two living aboard for longer cruises) while still permitting a fully enclosed head... full sized galley usable upright or offshore, and truly ample storage in sensibly sized lockers. Yet in terms of original cost, ease of anchoring, size of sails and winches, and ability to be maintained simply and inexpensively, she still retains the virtues of a small boat. Linda possess all the seakeeping qualities which has made the Morris/Paine line of yachts so well respected. The designed waterline is exceptionally long for high speed potential and damping of pitching motion; ballast is of external cast lead for stability and security if grounded; all ports are opening and bronze; interior headroom is over six feet as are the cockpit seats for snoozing; inboard diesel power is standard with the propeller fully protected in a properly faired aperture; the glass work superbly laminated yet completely hidden from view belowdecks by fine Maine standard wood joinerwork. Most important in the opinion of her builder, is the fact that this yacht exhibits the graceful traditional appearance which will continually enhance the pleasure of ownership, and return fair value if resale is ever contemplated." C.W. Paine Yacht Designs

This classic Chuck Paine design is a capable offshore cruiser

When Morris Yachts launched the Chuck Paine-designed Annie 29 in 1980, it attracted plenty of attention in the sailing community. Its look was in sharp contrast to Paine’s double-ended designs, the Frances 26 launched in 1974 and the Leigh 30 launched in 1979.

“The boats had many similarities, but the Annie had a raked transom with a transom-hung outboard rudder,” said Paine, a Camden, Maine, resident with a long list of award-winning designs to his credit. 

Paine, who considers himself a disciple of famed boat designer Nathanael Herreshoff, designed the Annie 29 as an offshore cruiser and recreational keelboat. It was available as a masthead sloop or as a cutter. The production run was approximately half sloops and half cutters.

Occasionally some confusion arises when the boat is referred to as the Annie 30. 

morris yachts maine

“The hull itself was 29 feet 7 inches long. Once you reckon in the stemhead weldment and the fact the rudder extended from the transom, the overall length was around 31 feet,” Paine said. “Tom Morris and I always were assiduously honest in everything we did or said, so we agonized over what length to claim. At first, we called her the Annie 29, so as not to claim something that was not true. But in the end, people were putting them in marina slips and paying rent by the length, in which case calling her 29 was dishonest. So we settled on the name Annie 30.”

Despite that naming decision, the boat is most often referred to as the Morris Annie 29, which should not be confused with the Sparkman & Stephens-designed M29, built and launched by Morris Yachts in 2008 as part of its M-Series. Paine eventually designed a revised version of the Annie 29, which he dubbed the Annie 2. 

“It was an intellectual exercise that I undertook after I closed the office in 2008. None of them has ever been built, unfortunately,” he said. “I would love to see someone build it.”

First impressions

With low freeboard, a sharp bow, tall rig and sloped transom, the Annie 29 looks ready to take on most any sea with aplomb. Everything about it looks rugged yet graceful, from the bronze and stainless steel deck fittings to the elegant teak and mahogany trim. It’s immediately clear why she has been included on classic sailboat lists worldwide. The closer you look, the more you notice the top-shelf construction materials and the masterful boat building. The Annie 29 radiates quality.

Morris Yachts built 16 Annie 29s and four more were built by Loomis Yachts in Maine after the company purchased the hull molds from Morris. The solid hull is hand-laid fiberglass. The deck is fiberglass with a balsa wood core. Portals are bronze, though some may be high-grade U.S. stainless steel, depending on owner preference.

The ballast is lead and attached to the keel stub with stainless bolts. All deck hardware is bronze or stainless steel. Handrails, toerails and other deck-mounted wood fittings are typically teak. The stanchions and bow pulpit are stainless steel and strongly support the lifelines. Chainplates independently attach through the deck to beefy fiberglass layers inside the hull. 

What to look for

morris yachts maine

The Annie 29 is nearly 40 years old and time may have taken its toll on certain aspects of the boat. Although the keel bolts are high-quality stainless  steel, there’s always a chance they’ve weakened and threatened to separate the ballast from the keel stub. Seacocks, through-hull fittings and chainplates should be inspected. 

“You have to take a look at them, but Tom Morris and I asked ourselves how we could make the chainplates last forever,” Paine said. “They’re designed so that the load is captured by the glasswork. The mast could fall off and the boat’s plywood completely rot away, but the chainplates would still be attached to the fiberglass. Besides, they’re made from very high-quality stainless steel.”

The bowsprit should be examined on the cutter rigs. Deck fittings should be inspected for leaks. The engine, too, should be closely checked for compression, fluid leaks, worn belts and cracked hoses.

Beauty and functionality describe the deck of the Annie 29, with strategically placed grabrails, protective toerails, appropriately located winches and genoa tracks and an adequate number of cleats. Boxed dorades offer ventilation in addition to the main hatch and companionway door. 

“I really appreciate ventilation aboard a boat,” Paine said. 

The mainsheet traveler is mounted aft of the cockpit where it doesn’t interfere with crew movement. Roller furling was in its infancy in 1980, or as Paine put it, “a novel idea at the time and a lot of owners didn’t believe in it.” As a result, furlers were not installed on the earliest Annie 29s and about a third had steering wheels. 

The elegant interiors were finished in teak or mahogany with masterful joinery. Some of the later models featured cherry wood, however, no two Annie 29s are alike.

“When these boats were being built in the early 1980s, the owners explained what sort of layout they wanted and Tom Morris was glad to follow those plans, with some recommendations,” Paine said. “Tom enjoyed making interior modifications.”

The V-berth sleeps two and has a privacy curtain. Most boats have a settee and a drop-leaf table that converts to an additional berth. The galley was usually located to starboard near the base of the companionway stairs and featured, a stainless basin sink, two-burner stove and top-loading icebox. 

“Refrigeration came much later,” said Paine. “If it’s on one of the Annies it’s a retrofit.”

The boat carries approximately 40 gallons of freshwater. Later models had 12-gallon waste tanks. 

Most Annie 29s received natural light from three or four portals on each side of the cabin and one forward, in addition to deck prisms. The head was installed either near the V-berth or farther aft in place of the chart table and dresser, depending on owner preference. A shower was optional and used freshwater engine cooling to heat the water.

The boat was designed with two-cylinder Volvo engine with 18 gallons of diesel. Paine noted there was no standard engine during the production phase of the Annie 29. 

Annie 29 is a heavy-displacement cruiser with a tall rig with a large sail area. It has a long keel with a cutaway forefoot and tends to track nicely. 

Most of the cutters had a boom on the staysail, while the yankee sail was hanked on. The mast was shorter on the cutters, but it carried slightly more sail area than the sloops.

According to Paine, the external ballast positively affects handling because it creates a stiffer boat. 

“With internal ballast, the center of gravity is higher up due to the way the lead is encapsulated inside the hull. There’s more up at the top and less at the bottom where it tapers, which can be a drawback,” Paine said. 

The Morris Annie 29 is a classic, compact, seaworthy keelboat capable of cruising offshore in style and comfort.

SAILING’s Value Guide  (5-sailboat rating system)

PRICE: The market price typically runs between $60,000 and  $90,000. 

DESIGN QUALITY:  Famed naval architect C.W. “Chuck” Paine designed the Annie 29 after gaining a solid reputation for his double-enders built by Morris Yachts in Maine. The Annie 29 was available as a sloop or a cutter.

CONSTRUCTION QUALITY: The late Tom Morris, who founded Morris Yachts in 1972, built most of the Annie 29s. Morris had already earned a reputation for quality construction.  

USER-FRIENDLINESS:  Owners report the boat is simple to reef and anchor, and easy to handle in a wide range of sea conditions. The boat exhibits heavy weather helm during a hard blow, according to Paine. The earlier models lacked roller furling so the foresails were laboriously hanked on. 

SAFETY:  The Morris Annie 29 has been described by owners as safe, sturdy and seaworthy and is known for its bluewater sailing capabilities. Plenty of external lead ballast helps keep the hull upright and provides a lower center of gravity. A dodger protects the small cockpit while high coamings keep the crew dry. Heavy-duty stanchions and lifelines add another measure of safety.

TYPICAL CONDITION:  Owners of Morris-built boats are typically proud of their investment and tend to have adequate resources to maintain the vessel in good-to-excellent condition. 

REFITTING:   The Morris Annie 29 is a relatively expensive boat, which translates to higher costs when refitting. And since only 16 were built, there is no warehouse of spare parts. At nearly 40 years old, the boats may require replacement of holding tanks and keel bolts and repair of deck delamination. 

SUPPORT: Morris Yachts was acquired by The Hinckley Company in 2016. Hinckley services Morris-built boats at its facilities along the East Coast from Maine to Florida.

AVAILABILITY: Only 16 Morris Annie 29s were built by Morris Yachts and they remain in demand. Four were on the market in the United States during summer 2019. Loomis Yachts of Maine later built three or four additional Annie 29s to the same rigorous standards imposed by Morris. 

INVESTMENT AND RESALE:  As with most Morris-built boats, the Annie 29 holds its value over time, with potential buyers putting trust in Morris’ reputation.

Principal dimensions: LOA 29’7”; LWL 24’6”; Beam 9’5”; Draft 4’6”; Displ. 11,027 lb.; Ballast 4,400 lb.; Sail area  459 sq. ft.

  • Hinckley Yachts

The Hinckley Company’s roots are deep in soil of Maine boatbuilding. The company, founded in 1928 to build and care for the boats of the local lobstermen, has been in continuous operation building such classics as the Bermuda 40 and the Picnic Boat. Henry Hinckley set the course with the Bermuda 40 in the early 1960s when he crafted her stunning lines out of a radical, new material, fiberglass. This combination of elegant form, material innovation and brilliant attention to finishing detail set the course Hinckley has been on ever since in the pleasure boat business.

Today, Hinckley builds Jetboats and sailboats from 29 to 55 feet and supports its owners and other yachtsmen with its network of service yards from Maine to Florida. Two other distinguished boat builders, Hunt Yachts and Morris Yachts, were acquired in 2013 and 2016 respectively.

Vicem Yachts Vintage Line is built using the cold-molding process. A construction technique which embodies all the construction methods of the Turkish historical marine tradition; a modern procedure different from traditional boat building. Based on engineered wood construction, cold-molding uses laminated mahogany and a specific formulated epoxy resin to create the hull, decks and principal superstructures. This results in a strong vessel with a smooth ride, and natural insulation from humidity and noise.
