Curve of Time



Experience a Maine Classic! The Morris Ocean 32 design was commissioned by Billy Morris, Tom Morris' brother for his own use. The celebrated designer Chuck Paine incorporated many design innovations such as the Scheel Keel and his unique balanced skeg rudder. Chuck has described this boat as "one of the prettiest I ever designed". Tom built only 7 of these rare and wonderful boats. They are very seaworthy, strong and fast sailing. Sisterships have competed in several Bermuda races with great success. Curve of Time was the third hull build and features a beautiful Herreshoff style Honduras mahogany with white laminate interior superbly crafted by some of best Maine marine carpenters.
