LYMAN-MORSE ANNOUNCES BALTIC WORKBOATS PARTNERSHIP


by Baltic Workboats AS - published on 15 December 2019 228 -

Since 1978 Lyman-Morse has built more than 110 vessels, ranging from aluminum workboats to high-end composite racing yachts and luxury power yachts. “Their experience with so many different building materials opens up a world of new possibilities for our vessels,” says Baltic Workboats’ CEO Margus Vanaselja.

In 2003 Lyman-Morse acquired a 15,000-square-foot metal fabrication shop, establishing Lyman-Morse Fabrication. Outfitted with the latest tooling, including a Hypertherm XPR300 plasma cutter, one of the most sophisticated such cutters in Maine, and myriad benders, presses, shears, and other machinery, this facility will be boatbuilding headquarters for the production of Baltic Workboats vessels in the USA.

“It is an exciting venture for us. It diversifies us into the commercial world more so than we have been in the past,” says Drew Lyman, President of Lyman-Morse. “I have driven their boats, and they are wonderful machines and higher-end than I ever expected a workboat to be,” he said.

“Lyman-Morse is a pedigree in the custom boatbuilding world. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them.” says Carl Mahler, Head of US Sales for Baltic Workboats. “This yard is known for exceptional build quality, and the area has over a century of distinguished boatbuilding history, much like our facility in Saaremaa, Estonia. It is the perfect marriage of innovation and tradition, and we are excited about what this partnership can bring to our customers here in the US.”

Baltic Workboats is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary, with over 200 vessels delivered in 20 countries. Their innovative wave-piercing hull design, the result of years of research and development, is now in its fifth year of production with almost 40 deliveries to date. This design has proven itself to be highly capable, efficient, and durable in many different areas of operation.
