Over the course of two winters, the Lyman-Morse team in Thomaston, Maine, restored a C. Raymond Hunt-designed, 47-foot classic cruiser called Sea Chase IV. This vessel had been built by Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Co. in 1991 and cruised extensively in the waters off Southern California. When Sea Chase IV needed a refit, one of the children of the original owner decided to bring this lovely yacht back to its original builder so that Lyman-Morse’s service team could bring it back to its full fit and finish, ready for a new run of making family memories. In 2018-19, the first phase of the refit focused on creature comforts like AC, heating, and finishes like varnish and paint and new cushions both inside and out. The second phase, in 2019-20, saw Sea Chase IV refit with more efficient engines and generators, a bow thruster, electrical wiring, and system upgrades. Completing this large-scale refit over the course of two winters ensured that the owners were able to enjoy their yacht without ever missing a Maine summer afloat.
