Lyman-Morse delivers landing craft for N.H. researchers

(THOMASTON, Maine) — Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding recently delivered the first hull in its new workboat series, the LMF 33 landing craft, to the University of New Hampshire’s School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering.

The LMF 33, designed by Response Marine of Newburyport, Mass., was built to withstand the rigors of extreme marine environments. The aluminum hull is designed to allow operators to land the boat on rocky beaches without damaging the hull, while the wide-open bow functions as a stable and uncluttered work, cargo or passenger space.

Hull No.1 was built for the operator with a 3,300-pound crane mounted on the deck for easy hauling of nets and traps. The boat also features twin 250-hp outboards with joystick control. The LMF 33 also can be fitted with twin inboard diesels.
