Your life is complicated. Your boat shouldn’t be.
Presenting the LM46, a high-performance, bespoke sailing yacht that will reconnect you to what matters. With a low-maintenance, cold-molded hull that offers the unmatched, comfortable motion and ambiance of a wooden boat with the 10-knot-plus speeds of a modern performance yacht, you and your family will form a bond with the LM46 that will last generations.
Partnering with longtime friend and acclaimed Kiwi yacht designer Kevin Dibley, we’ve designed the LM46 to return sailing to being about sharing time with friends and family, enjoying a drink in the cockpit after a great day underway, and appreciating the beauty of our surroundings. Comfort doesn’t come from jamming every shoreside amenity into your boat, it comes from the reassuring motion of a Douglas Fir/Western Red Cedar hull sliding quietly through the water, the knowledge that you have everything you need aboard (and nothing more), and the satisfaction of owning a yacht that makes a statement about its owner. Our goal for the LM46 is simple: To have you sailing within 5 minutes of stepping aboard, and to be able to step off within 5 minutes of picking up your mooring.
Make no mistake: This is no docile, classic wooden boat. We have designed an extremely fast yacht, one that can put itself at the top of the fleet in almost any race, coastal or offshore. A top New Zealand design coupled with cutting-edge Lyman-Morse Maine craftsmanship makes for a winning combination.
