Maine boatyard developmentsAug 27, 2015
Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding has purchased the iconic Wayfarer Marine in Camden, Maine. Lyman-Morse is not alone in expanding its service capabilities.
Morris Yachts of Trenton, Maine, announced that it is opening a new service yard in Southern Maine’s Casco Bay. In the new endeavor, Morris is partnering with Handy Boat of Falmouth Foreside, Maine, just north of Portland.
For decades Handy Boat has served as a full-service boatyard complete with dockage, fuel, large mooring field and launch service. The yard is also home to the Dockside Grill restaurant and bar and Hallett Canvas and Sails.
Morris Yachts has partnered with Handy Boat of Falmouth to offer service to customers in southern Maine.
“Handy Boat’s location in the heart of Casco Bay is the ideal addition to Morris’s service facilities for our customers,” said Cuyler Morris, owner of Morris Yachts. Morris added, “Casco Bay is the gateway to Maine’s world-class cruising grounds. With the combination of these two facilities and their dedicated service teams you can begin and end your journey with Morris service.”
Meanwhile, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding of Thomaston, Maine, has acquired Wayfarer Marine Corporation on Camden Harbor. The new marina and service facility has been renamed Lyman-Morse at Wayfarer Marine.
The facility is situated on more than nine acres and includes 37 slips, 846 feet of wharf, 47 moorings, fuel, launch service and a 110-ton Marine Travelift.
