Hood 57: One Sexy Boat

What do you get when you put Lyman-Morse boatbuilders and the design firms of Stephens Waring and C.W. Hood together?


Lyman-Morse, the Thomaston, Maine, boatbuilder launched the Hood 57 on October 2, and the boat is a real showstopper. The elegant design was a collaborative effort between Stephens Waring Yacht Design and C.W. Hood Yacht Design.

Featuring a distinctive all-varnished trunk, cabin and flybridge, a custom titanium spiral stairwell and twin Volvo Penta IPS 1350 pod drives, the Spirit of Tradition design is a stunner and should run like the wind.
