MORNING MIST is an extremely clean example of this very popular and well respected New England built cruising sailboat. She offers comfortable accommodation below, a very efficient deck and cockpit for easy sailing, and a surprising turn of speed.
Since her current owner purchased her 4 years ago, he has upgraded her with new standing and running rigging, turning blocks, Lewmar windlass, Raymarine chart plotter, radar, autopilot, and depthsounder.
