Life can be complicated; yachting doesn’t have to be.

The new Lyman Morse 46 was recently launched, a high-performance, bespoke sailing yacht designed by New Zealander Kevin Dibley and built by Lyman Morse boatbuilders in Maine, USA. Living up to the statement that life can be complicated, but yachting doesn’t have to be. The classic aesthetic, with clean, sleek lines, is a nod towards traditional wooden yacht design. Still, the LM46 is far from a traditional wooden sailing yacht with a simple, low maintenance hull designed and built for maximum efficiency and comfort.

This performance cruiser is designed to be shared with friends and family, appreciating the beauty of the surroundings and equally suited to coastal or offshore racing or cruising. Doyle Sails understands the importance of a perfectly paired sail inventory designed only ever to enhance the sailing experience. Lighter sails that are easier to handle and designed with wider angles are easier to trim with fewer sail changes and ultimately perfectly suited for racing or cruising – or wherever your adventure takes you.

The LM 46 has an inventory built from Doyle Sails’ exclusive range of Stratis 1100 by Doyle Sails Newport – this range provides unmatched performance due to the combination of Carbon and Technora fibres. Stratis 1100 pairs patented resins selected for their long term durability and resistance to stretch with the high-performance fibres. Our team of expert sailors and sailmakers listen to your needs and build your sails to suit. There is no ‘one size fits all approach’ at Doyle Sails; every sail is 100% bespoke and, more often than not, built by your local sail loft – allowing you the opportunity to meet not only the sailors but the sailmakers that will be making your sail.
