Jet Boat Whistler to Launch

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Lyman Morse will Launch its newest and largest jet boat on Thursday, May 14, at its facility in Thomaston, Maine.
 
Whistler is Lyman Morse’s new C. Raymond Hunt designed 54 ft twin jet cruiser. The Whistler features a dinghy garage.  A hydraulic gate and sled extend out over the jets allowing the owner to launch the 10 ft tender from the interior storage compartment with the push of a button.  Powered by twin 1001 hp Caterpillar C-18s coupled with Hamilton HJ403 water-jets, Whistler will cruise in the low 30s with a max speed of 35 knots.  She features the fly-by-wire Blue Arrow electronic control system with mouse and joystick for steering and docking ease. 
 
The interior is finished in mahogany with walnut and white Formica accents.  Accommodations include an owner's cabin with en-suite head and an office which converts to a guest cabin, also with its own head. Granite galley countertops, maple soles, a lifting 32 inch television with DirecTV and electric grill are also included.  The vessel is Lyman Morse’s first new build to use Alexseal paint; she features a dark gray with Pegasus Gray pilot house and topsides.
