Project: Lyman-Morse Monhegan 42

Lyman-Morse is building the new Monhegan 42. A continuation of a long-standing relationship between Lyman-Morse and C. Raymond Hunt Associates, the Monhegan 42 represents the Maine's builder continued success with creating a series of semi-custom yachts that allow an owner to customize a vessel to suit their needs using an existing design platform. This proven process delivers all the attributes of a custom yacht, with far less lead time.  Hull no. 3 of the Monhegan 42 series rides on Hunt’s renowned deep-V hull design and will get power from a pair of Cummins 550hp, giving her a cruising speed of 28 knots, with a top end of 32 knots. The helm station of hull no. 3 is custom to the owner’s specific needs, with oversized 17-inch display screens, as well as bow and stern thrusters for easy docking. Below, there is a galley and dinette/lounge area for meal prep and dining, a head, shower, and primary stateroom forward. This owner wanted to be able to lie down on the settee and relax, so the team at Lyman incorporated a custom footwell into the layout to allow for optimal relaxation. Interior joinery is made from South American mahogany, with teak and wenge accents. Additional options abound on this model, demonstrating a key attribute to the semi-custom series approach. There are four available configurations, including flybridge, extended cruiser, and open. The 42 employs the SCRIMP resin infusion method which maximizes strength, reduces weight, and delivers a precise lay-up.  While hull no. 3’s owner is a longtime boater, this is their first foray into a semi-custom build. When surveying the industry, they chose Lyman-Morse due to their unparalleled ability to produce bespoke, semi-custom boats that deliver unrivaled performance, safety, and convenience at sea.
