For decades Chuck Paine and Bob Perry shared the leadership of the “sell up and sail” market for semi-production world cruisers. Though that market is well served by the brokerage houses today, there are still a few out there who possess the financial means to build new and the desire to enjoy the first maintenance free years of a yacht’s life.  For you, a new and larger version of one of our beautifully engineered, moderate draft, medium displacement, highly stable and fast cruising yachts might be just the ticket. Or a custom completed utmost quality sistership from the master builders at Morris Yachts.


Paine designed sailing designs range from small high-performance day boats to huge sailing palaces. Briefly they are:
