  News - Annie Lannigan Joins Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Creating Newport, RI Based Sales and Service Location  

Thomaston, ME – Drew and Cabot Lyman are pleased to welcome Annie Lannigan to the new boat, brokerage and service sales team at Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding. Annie will be based at Newpory Shipyard in Newport, RI.

“It makes sense for us to have a presence in Newport because it has a large customer and potential customer base for new boat, brokerage and service sales.” said Drew Lyman. “Our service yard in Thomaston, Maine offers a tremendous value compared to Newport yards of similar caliber. Having Annie on the ground there will grow our service business. Annie’s extensive work with custom boat builders and recent years of offshore cruising make her a perfect match for relating to the Lyman Morse customer. The Newport Shipyard location will make for easy to access – by boat or by car.

Annie was most recently involved in sales and marketing at Seaton Yachts, builder of long-range expedition trawlers. She also served as sales manager at Dyer Boats, and director of marketing at Hunt Yachts. She owns and operates a 65’ Chuck Paine designed sloop. Annie’s extensive offshore sailing experience (she has logged more than 30,000 miles) makes her a natural for the Lyman-Morse team.

Annie will be flying the Lyman-Morse flag aboard Te Mana and Puffin at the Newport Brokerage show held at the Newport Shipyard. The rest of the Lyman-Morse team will have a display in the Newport International Boat Show - NYC Tent G – 42-43. The show is a great opportunity to come by and talk to them directly about the Speedream and Kiwi Spirit projects, the new LM55 and the LM70.

Drawing on Thomaston, Maine’s 200-year tradition of shipbuilding and fine craftsmanship, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding is one of the world’s finest custom and semi-custom builder of sailing and motor yachts. The firm also operates service yards in Thomaston, Tenants Harbor and Shelter Bay, Panama. A family run, father and son business, Cabot and Drew Lyman’s boatyard specializes in composites, advanced composites and aluminum construction. Discriminating owners, world-class naval architects and designers all come to Lyman-Morse knowing that they are expert in any medium and are able to deliver dreams on time and on budget. Since the yard’s founding in 1978, more than 100 yachts have been sent down the St. George River ranging in scope from carbon fiber catamarans and traditional sailing sloops to not-so traditional carbon racing monohulls, stately motor yachts and sportfish powerboats to sporty jet boats and daysailers.

Lyman Morse's broad-ranging capabilities are showcased not only by workmanship of the 90 plus-skilled workforce, but also by modern, energy efficient and expansive facilities. The 11-acre campus features 7 heated work buildings with 55,000 square feet of space for refit and repair/and boatbuilding. Servicing fine yachts is a natural outgrowth of boatbuilding. Repairs, rebuilds and servicing ship systems, along with upgrading gear and seasonal maintenance are handled by a division of the company called Lyman Yacht Service (LYS). The LYS team of experienced bluewater sailors and builders understand what proper maintenance is all about and is the reason experienced, and demanding yachtsmen deliver their yachts to Lyman-Morse.

The combination of a state-of-the-art facility with some of the world's finest craftsmen has allowed Lyman-Morse to expand into areas outside the marine world to work with architects, interior designers, business and home owners to meet even the most interesting needs. The firm is currently working with a New York City architecture firm to build a new 1600 square foot aluminum composite canopy for Baruch College.
