Less than 80 Feet Sailing


Windwalker, 60' Aft Cockpit Sloop

The classic sheer and graceful rig provides the latest collaboration between Lyman-Morse and Fontaine Design Group with a timeless beauty, while the latest systems and styles allow her to sail like a modern machine. The smart but traditional lines of this hull have produced a slippery hull that is crowned by a beautifully sculpted and varnished teak deckhouse. The yacht is also outfitted with a carbon-fiber mast, Leisure furl in-boom mainsail furling, and a contemporary bulb keel. Windwalker provides exciting fast sailing for its owners in a classically styled vessel that represents the best of New England built yachts.

Under the leadership of John (JB) Turner, Lyman Morse Boat Building Company of Thomaston, Maine has completed the beautiful 60’ sloop Windwalker. The talented craftsmen of the well-known Maine yard combined traditional woodworking skills with modern composite construction techniques, creating a superlative sailing yacht.

The hull was laminated using the Scrimp resin infusion process, creating a hull lamination that is completely uniform in the resin to fiber ratio as well as complete adhesion of the core material to the inner and outer skins. The Scrimp process results in an extremely strong hull and internal structure. Because of the owners’ desire for a traditionally styled interior and exterior, Windwalker was outfitted with a varnished teak cabin trunk with beautifully laid teak decks on the main deck and coach roof. The natural teak deck was laid over laminated teak and ash deck beams, creating a beautifully detailed interior overhead scheme. The yacht has exceeded the expectations of the owners for performance sailing and classic construction techniques. To maximize performance, a carbon fiber mast was selected as well as a fully battened mainsail that furls into the Leisure Furl stow-boom mainsail system.
