EIDER DOWN is an exceptional vessel, built by Morris Yachts soon after purchasing Able Marine. She was layed up by Morris in 2001 and finished by an extremely detail oriented owner whose company specializes in high-end woodworking in 2004. Imagine a boat that was built personally by a boat builder with no time constraints, and every square inch inspected at length by the owner. A surveyor reported that "she was one of the very few vessels in his surveying career that he would place in the BRISTOL category." He went on to say "the workmanship is second to none" and "this is a very well equipped vessel with what appears to be a well informed and experienced owner." EIDER DOWN is a boat that must be seen to be truly appreciated.

Interior finish & layout
Eider Down's interior is extremely spacious and well appointed. She is finished in exquisite detail with contrasting cherry and curly maple and high gloss varnish. The custom cabinetry has ornate vents cut into each storage door. The cabin sole is traditional teak and holly. SHOWER/MECHANICAL ROOM Upon entering the boat at the companionway a large separate shower stall is immediately to port. A watertight bulkhead door give access through the shower stall to the engine and mechanical space aft. Built in drawers and lockers outboard give considerable storage. Access to this area is also available through the port seat locker door in the cockpit.
QUARTERCABIN To starboard at the foot of the companionway is a quarter cabin with a hanging locker outboard and a large built in 8 drawer dresser and built in shelves above. The hull is finished in cherry sheathing. There is a full length shelf outboard and a hull portlight and overhead hatch for light and ventilation.
GALLEY Moving forward on the starboard side is a spacious sea-friendly U-shaped galley with a three burner stove/oven outboard and a two basin sink facing inboard. The galley is finished with Corian counter tops with fiddles. Separate Fridge and Freezer lift tops are along the aft bulkhead with arched storage lockers above. Outboard are three storage compartments with sliders and a built-in microwave above. Dry storage is available through lift tops outboard fore and aft. Additional storage is offered in drawers and lockers below.
HEAD Opposite the galley is a head with a Corian countertop and sink. A cherry framed mirror is on the forward bulkhead. Storage is available from an outboard shelf and two sliders, a hinged locker in the counter as well as another locker outboard and under the sink.
NAV STATION Just forward of the head is a forward facing nav station. Outboard is a full breaker panel with digital amp and volt meters. All instrumentation is flush mounted outboard and forward. A full size computer monitor is mounted diagonally inboard at eye level. The chart table top is hinged with storage within. Outboard are two more liftup storage areas. Drawers are built in below the desk for additional storage.
MAIN SALON The main salon is beautifully finished with a raised panel forward bulkhead in cherry and curly maple. Outboard on the port and starboard are lockers (sliding lowers and hinged uppers with arched tops). A full length settee is located to starboard and a U-shaped settee with a large table to starboard. The dinette table has a hinged leaf and a detailed inlay on the top.
FORWARD STATEROOM Forward of the main salon is a spacious stateroom with a centerline queen bunk. Ample storage is outboard both port and starboard in the way of hanging lockers, upper lockers, and dressers below with drawers. The hull is finished with cherry sheathing. Two hull ports and an overhead hatch give plenty of light and ventilation. A flat screen TV is mounted on the aft bulkhead.
