THOMASTON — Lyman-Morse recently celebrated the launch of Shadow, Hull 1 of the new Hood 35 LM series. The Hood 35 LM follows the recent collaboration between Lyman-Morse and C.W. Hood Design on the Hood 57 LM. Shadow is designed as a hardtop express and equipped with advanced marine technology.

Shadow is one of the first dayboat-sized vessels to utilize Raymarine’s new Digital Switching System, YachtSense. The Raymarine vessel control system offers digital switching, which replaces traditional mechanical switches and circuit breakers with digitally controlled power distribution modules. This reduces the size and length of cabling required to distribute power throughout the boat. Hull No. 1 features twin 440-hp Yanmar 6LY440s coupled to a pair of Hamilton Waterjet HJX29s.

According to Lyman-Morse, “This is the first pleasure vessel in the USA to be equipped with these brand-new jets. More efficient, more powerful, and with military grade controls, Shadow reaches speeds of more than 40 knots. Shadow is also the first pleasure vessel to be equipped for autonomous running with the state-of-the-art Sea Machines system.”
