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.

The cold-molded hull is beautifully shaped and engineered for a smooth ride. Twin-jet propulsion easily gets you to, and the shallow draft 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.
