The Hood 57 by Lyman-Morse is a Classic Express yacht launched in October 2020. Chris Hood, of CW Hood Yachts, developed the yacht’s original design and concept, worked with Stephens Waring Yacht Design in Thomaston, on the design, and then brought the project to the Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding Company for its execution of craftsmanship.

“Lyman-Morse has been working with the Hood family since we got into the business in 1978, and having recently finished Anna, another highly engineered build from Stephens Waring Yacht Design, Chris Hood knew we were up and running on what he wanted to do in terms of building this new powerboat,” said Drew Lyman, president of Lyman-Morse. Lyman outlined the Hood 57 LM’s mission simply: pure enjoyment and lifestyle on the water. He said the yacht is easily handled and can be docked single-handed, with the feel of luxury car performance and top speeds of 37.5 knots and cruise at 32 knots– all within the comforts of the plush interior and its 360˚ views. He said it is perfect for weekend cruising and entertaining.

The Hood 57 LM features custom-designed, bead-blasted, stainless-steel hardware, including a spiral stairway leading to the flybridge. The yacht’s unique open-format cockpit, provides direct access to the water and dock, and accommodations for four.
