Maine yards combine

Jul 26, 2015 by Guest Writer

Maine-based Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding has purchased Wayfarer Marine, also in Maine. The yards will combine infrastructure and expertise in midcoast Maine. The Wayfarer property in Camden will be known as Lyman-Morse at Wayfarer Marine.

“We are very excited about joining the two crews to create a most talented group of marine experts,” said Drew Lyman, president of Lyman-Morse. “Wayfarer’s customers will benefit in a big way through economies of scale and access to Lyman-Morse’s depth of expertise and resources including our boatbuilding pedigree, Lyman-Morse Fabrication, our CNC machining department, and Lyman-Morse Technologies.”

Lyman-Morse was started by Cabot and Heidi Lyman in 1978 after their world travels in the 1960s and ’70s and is now captained by their son, Drew Lyman. Drew grew up in the marine industry and circumnavigated with his family on a Lyman-Morse built 49’ sailboat from 1987 to 1990. The Lyman family is also completing a 26-room boutique hotel in Rockland, Maine.
