The Sam L. Morse Company, the builder
of two of the best small blue water
cruisers in the world, the Bristol Channel Cutter
and the Falmouth Cutter
, has decided to discontinue manufacturing.
The molds, patterns and exclusive manufacturing rights are now for sale
for US$50,000 FOB Costa Mesa, California
Sumio Oya wants his passion to go to a good home. Most important to Oya, is that the buyer be someone who will carry on the traditions of The Sam L. Morse Co. Oya says he has three boat manufacturers and one individual interested in purchasing the rights to build the Bristol Channel Cutter, Falmouth Cutter and other less-frequently-built models. “I’m not interested in them bidding against each other,” says Oya. “I want to see their passion and skill. They have to meet and talk with me, and then I will decide.”
