This is a very special yacht designed by Chuck Paine and outfitted for extensive cruising and single handing; all equipment has been well cared for by the owner. She had a new Nanni Diesel engine installed in 2005 which has only been used four of the last ten years (205 hours). This is a fantastic example of the very popular Morris Frances 26 (the boat that started it all!). Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Morris history.
