50′ Lyman-Morse Wesmac Lorax is a unique timeless classic. Beyond its “true to the glance” Downeast flybridge design, she provides three staterooms, a galley up, three helm stations, and an 18-knot cruise speed in a 50′ custom Maine-built boat. In the words of her original owner, “This boat is a lifestyle”. If you have ever wondered about the mystique of “Downeast” boats, why they “look” the way they do, then you should investigate this well spoken of boat (call for press coverage). The traditional shapes on this elegant boat translate into a powerfully comfortable, safe ride in very challenging sea conditions. (Downeast hull designs are known for their soft, dry ride. They ride at relatively flat angles at all speed ranges. Moreover, like many private airplanes, their single-engine design cuts fuel and maintenance costs in half while also providing a keel that gives the best protection to the propeller and rudder possible.) 50′ Lyman-Morse Wesmac Lorax offers Maine-built, luxurious Downeast craftsmanship, capable sportfish amenities, and knowledgeable ownership history. This rare combination of modern Downeast hull design (Wesmac) generous fit and finish work (Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding) and the brokerage service of Lyman-Morse awaits your dream come true.
