From the drawing boards of Chuck Paine and Ed Joy, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding is proud to introduce the Lyman-Morse 55, the culmination of all the insight Cabot and Heidi Lyman have gained from circumnavigating the globe with their children, as well as building over 100 boats and maintaining many more. Adding the experience of the designers, there are more than 250,000 ocean miles in the wake of the team behind this remarkable new yacht.

The Lyman-Morse 55 is designed and built to go to sea – and looks the part. An accomplished sailor will recognize that every detail has been conceived and executed with the needs of those who venture offshore. Moderate in displacement, the hull shape provides a fine entry at the bow, a midship section for maximum stability, and a stern that makes for an exhilarating turn of speed in a strong following breeze. Logbook entries showing 200-mile days will not be uncommon.
