ergonomic improvement for workers

Since 1978, Lyman-Morse has been designing, building and servicing the finest boats such as luxury power yachts, carbon-fiber ocean racers and cold-molded wooden sailing sloops. Drawing on Maine’s long tradition of boat building, Lyman-Morse has relied on world-class craftsmen and craftswomen to design and build everything from complete boats, to a custom piece of steel hardware for an industrial client or an advanced composite architectural feature.

Supported by on-site fabrication, an advanced composites division and the latest technology, Lyman-Morse’s innovation in boat building techniques has helped it stand out from other boatbuilders worldwide.

In recent years MTI’s investments have helped Lyman-Morse to modernize its fabrication workshop and create more efficient work areas. With the installation of a 5-ton Somatex  overhead crane system in one of  the company’s boatbuilding bays, Lyman-Morse is testing new techniques for the construction of wooden and wood-composite yachts. These techniques aim to improve ergonomics for workers by up to 50%, reduce waste, and increase the speed and efficiency of boatbuilding operations. MTI’s support is also helping Lyman-Morse reconfigure and modernize its metal fabrication workshop, one of the company’s fastest-growing business divisions.

This focus on innovation has led to additional marine projects as well as other projects that would not have been possible without the addition of this key piece of equipment.

Lyman-Morse fuses design, technology, and craftsmanship to pursue new marine and non-marine projects that push the envelope of what is possible. They share MTI’s vision of innovation and the use of the latest technology and equipment to grow their business and exceed their clients’ expectations.
