The Hood 35 by Lyman-Morse hits the sweet spot of C.W. Hood Yacht Design’s powerboat acumen. Pulling in the best elements of the firm’s successful mid-sized powerboats, the Hood 35 LM Express Cruiser takes the express cruiser genre to another level – perfect for day- and weekend-long jaunts. This yacht is available in three versions: soft top, hard top, and a flybridge.

The cold-molded hull is beautifully shaped and engineered for a smooth ride. Twin diesel outboards, or optional IPS pod drives, give you the propulsion to get you into your favorite tucked-away private coves. The yacht is engineered and designed to handle all conditions, including when it’s less than ideal on the bay, with aplomb.

Hull No. 1 is currently under construction in Thomaston, Maine, and is scheduled for a 2021 launch.
