Lyman-Morse is taking an innovative approach to the construction of a new Hood 57 custom motor yacht being developed in a collaboration with C.W. Hood Yachts and Stephen Waring Yacht Design. A Spirit of Tradition show-stopper now under construction at Lyman-Morse’s boat building facility in Thomaston, Maine, it will bring head turning elegance to the Express-Cruiser market.

Perfect for weekend cruising and entertaining, the Hood 57 will feature custom titanium hardware and a titanium spiral stair leading to the flydeck. These elements will be constructed at Lyman-Morse Fabrication. The yacht’s unique open-format cockpit with direct access to the water and dock, along with well-founded accommodations for four, will ensure fun times on the water for family and friends.

A 2020 delivery is expected for this 57-foot power yacht.
