At last fall's U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland, we had the pleasure of meeting naval architect Ed Joy and learning of his latest project, a collaboration with his longtime colleague Chuck Paine on yet another intriguing vessel that will be built in Maine, the Lyman-Morse 55. Here's a brief overview from Ed's design brief:
"The Lyman-Morse 55 is the culmination of all the insight Cabot and Heidi Lyman have gained from circumnavigating the globe with their children, as well as building 102 offshore boats and maintaining many more. Adding the experience of the designers, there are over 250,000 ocean miles in the wake of the team behind this remarkable yacht.
