Particulars: Maine is blessed with a number of custom boatbuilders, but we think it's safe to say that none currently work in as many mediums and materials as does Lyman-Morse in Thomaston. Straight fiberglass, SCRIMP, wood, aluminum, stainless steel--they work in them all. Their newest launch, Mala Conducta, was built with Kevlar/Eglass prepreg outer skins, with P or Nomex core, and carbon prepreg inner skins. This 62' cruising catamaran will be light, nimble, and fast. In order to build such a complex structure with these high-tech materials, Lyman-Morse had to build four different oven configurations to cure the composites at 160-180 degrees. The deck was built in a female mold in one large piece; it is also a combination of Kevlar/E-glass and carbon fiber prepregs. The boat is expected to reach speeds of more than 25 knots -- not bad for a boat with all the amenities that was built for family cruising. Mala Conducta features cutting-edge lithium ion batteries and an E-plex electrical system designed to keep weight down. The E-plex system by Bass Electronics utilizes touch screens, which are located throughout the vessel, to control lighting and electronics.
Champagne smashMala Conducta is christened (with gusto!) just before launching.
