Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding recently dedicated a building to Bill Belyea to honor his 30 years of service with the company.

The Renaissance Yacht Building will now be known as the Belyea Building.

Belyea joined Lyman-Morse in March 1982 as a carpenter and steadily rose through the company. He now serves as director of production, managing all new boat construction and major refits.

Belyea broke a bottle of champagne across the front of the building to celebrate its "launch." It currently serves as a refit and storage space, and it houses the company's canvas fabrication shop.

"It was important to recognize someone who has been with me side by side for 30 years. Together we have watched our kids grow up, lived through good and bad times, but most of all, we have built some very good boats together," said Cabot Lyman, founder and owner of Lyman-Morse, in a statement.

Thomaston, Maine-based Lyman-Morse produces custom sailing yachts and custom motoryachts.
