As beautiful as her namesake, Justine 36 was the first Morris/Paine design which included the ability to race as well as cross the oceans in comfort and safety. Her objective was to bridge the gap between traditional-styled boats and modern, technically advanced underbodies. With her balanced sail plan, she created a new generation of classically styled cruising boats specifically for the short-handed cruising sailor or cruising couple of today.
Justine 36 features classic styling, with a deck of end grain balsa cored glass with an abundance of stunning teak trim. Her deck plan is well suited to family cruising with wide side decks and deep bulwarks. Cockpit seatbacks provide comfortable seating and excellent shelter from wind and spray. The house sides are angled slightly inboard in order to give the crew a view of the sea rather than the sky, and also prevent the trapping of rain and/or spray in the opening ports. She was offered with two basic interiors, and alterations may have been made depending on owner requests. In both designs, however, priority was given to space in the forward cabin to allow for a bureau and a large seat to starboard with a locker outboard.
