Sea Bear II

Use buttons below to view more information about Sea Bear II.

SEABEAR II has turned heads since her launching as the first of the Morris 38's to hit the water. Lovingly maintained by her present owner she represents a boat in ready-to-go condition.  She is well equipped with modern amenities and a carbon fiber mast, yet still embraces the aesthetics of tradition boat design.  Morris-built to stand the tests of time, she will reward her future owners with years of enjoyment!
