Changing Places

Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding named Annie Lannigan, who has offshore sailing experience and has worked at Seaton Yachts, Dyer Boats and Hunt Yachts, to its new boat, brokerage and service sales team.

Lannigan will be based at the Maine company’s sales and service location in Newport, R.I.

“It makes sense for us to have a presence in Newport because it has a large customer and potential customer base for new boat, brokerage and service sales,” Lyman-Morse vice president Drew Lyman said in a statement. “Our service yard in Thomaston, Maine, offers a tremendous value, compared to Newport yards of similar caliber. Having Annie on the ground there will grow our service business. Annie’s extensive work with custom boat builders and recent years of offshore cruising make her a perfect match for relating to the Lyman-Morse customer. The Newport Shipyard location will make for easy access — by boat or by car.”

Lannigan was most recently involved in sales and marketing at Seaton Yachts, a builder of long-range expedition trawlers. She also served as sales manager at Dyer Boats and director of marketing at Hunt Yachts. She owns and operates a 65-foot Chuck Paine-designed sloop. She also has extensive offshore sailing experience and has logged more than 30,000 miles.

Lannigan will be flying the Lyman-Morse flag aboard Te Mana and Puffin at the Newport Brokerage show held at the Newport Shipyard. The rest of the Lyman-Morse team will have a display at the Newport International Boat Show (NYC Tent G – 42-43), which starts Thursday.
