Surprise, a Morris M36, is a terrific example of a well-built Sparkman & Stephens-designed sloop with lovely finish work throughout. Her simplicity of sail plan and rigging with boom-furled main take the stress out of sailing to enjoy her time and time again. Her proportions are beautiful and efficient. Her sails are 2015, and she has been meticulously upgraded and maintained. If you are in the market for a distinctive sloop both in style and seaworthiness, you may want to look at this Morris!
