Visit Latitude at the Newport Brokerage Show and tour our Morris 42 Ocean Series “REJOICE” and the L&H 33’ Walkaround “DADDY O’s”

2009 Morris 42 Ocean Series “REJOICE” – Always maintained by the talented crew at Morris and Hinckley Yachts.

“Rejoice” is truly a one of a kind Morris 42 Ocean Series. She was designed by Chuck Paine and Morris Yachts, a collaboration that led the Morris 42 to win the Cruising World Overall Domestic Boat of the Year in 2005. “Rejoice” was the last Ocean Series 42 built and is in excellent condition.

The Ocean Series combines strong, safe, offshore voyaging characteristics with comfortable live-aboard space and an ease of handling for short-handed sailing. She also has a shallow draft allowing for flexible cruising and anchoring options.

L&H 33’ Walkaround “DADDY O’s”

‘Daddy O’s’ is Not your typical L&H!! By far the nicest and most equipped L&H on the market!

She has been extensively refit in 2017 & 2018 by Cape Cod’s Premier Service Yard, MacDougall’s Cape Cod Marine Service. The talented team at MacDougall’s have been involved since the current owner purchased her, creating a first class service schedule and project timeline.

The Newport Brokerage Show runs in conjunction with the Newport International Boat Show, Sept 14th through the 17th, 2017

Don’t miss the chance to view over 100 quality sail and motor yachts from 40′ to 140′ on display at the Newport Shipyard. Admission to the show is complimentary and offers a water shuttle to the Newport International Boat Show (admission to the NIBS not included).

Considering a Live-Aboard Retirement? 150 150 admin

Considering a Live-Aboard Retirement?

Retirement is a time when you can take your prime interest and make it the focus of your lifestyle. For many boaters this means spending time on the water. During pre-retirement years, most people are limited by work commitments to only spend weekends and annual vacations on their boats. Many retirees are now planning to focus on doing what they most enjoy by searching for the right boat to live aboard.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, Yacht Owners Ditch Life on Land for the High Seas : “Living aboard and cruising the world is a retirement dream for many, but it takes planning and preparation to pull off.”

Latitude Yacht Brokerage can help you through the planning and preparation process by assisting you in determining exactly what vessel will best suit your particular needs. What type, style and size vessel do you like? What is your budget for your retirement boat? Are you likely to do long-distance, coastal cruising, or mostly dock-side living?

Whether you are ready to take the plunge and go full live-aboard retirement, or ease into it with a combination of shore-side and live-aboard retirement, we can help you find the right boat. We will consult with you to refine your options and preferences and act as your buyer’s broker to assist you to locate the best boat for your needs and represent your interests in the negotiation and purchase process.

For more information on planning for your retirement boat, contact Gene Magnetti – – who after a long career in the corporate world now assists his fellow boat lovers to find the right sail or powerboat for their retirement living.
