Morris Yachts holds annual Maine show

Publish date:

Morris Yachts held its annual boat show during the weekend, displaying new and used models at its Northeast Harbor boatyard in Maine.

The boats on display ranged from smaller sailboats to luxury yachts.

“We have several boats on the hard here in the marina, as well as on the docks, and we’ve got a variety of models from 29 to 48 feet. So it gives people a chance to get on board and see the beautiful craftsmanship of our boats,” Morris Yachts marketing and public relations manager Susan James told TV station WABI.

This show concluded with the sixth annual Tom Morris Memorial Regatta. Proceeds from the regatta benefit the MDI Community Sailing Center.
