S&S 48 – Lyman Morse

Lyman Morse
Ocean Yacht Systems have recently completed the commissioning of a truly remarkable vessel designed by the legendary Sparkman & Stephens of New York.

This stunning 48 foot sloop built by the team at Lyman Morse has classic S&S styling and performance but hidden within her carbon fibre hull is enough technology to run the largest of superyachts.

S&S originally approached OYS to design and supply a primary power and handling system. The result is an absolutely unique rotating stern drive that, when used in partnership with its ultra lightweight retracting bow thruster, provides single joystick control for thrusting in almost any direction.

With a PLC based control system, OYS not only controlled the propulsion but all other automated sail furling and trimming functions.

“The finished product is one of the prettiest, most manoeuvrable short handed yachts you will ever find. S&S and Lyman Morse should be applauded for the seamless way they have blended beauty and innovation.”
