Morna : New Owners, July 2018
When Morna went up for sale in 2015, here is what the broker had to say about her; "It is no wonder that Morna with her canoe stern and fine drawn out ends has found over the years owners who adore and love her - with more volume below and expansive deck space she has always proved the perfect cruising boat. Dickies knew how to build strong and supremely seaworthy boats and in Morna Peter Dickies's passion for beautiful yachts is very evident, along with a little influence from Albert Strange and William Fife II.
Alas, the asking price was too high and she didn't sell. However, the Dartmouth based brokerage, Wooden Ships, are about to pop the Champagne corks (July 2018), with a successful sale to new owners, Matt & Paige, hopeful of circumnavigating the globe in her.
