CW Hood Yachts – 57 Classic Express

The 57 Classic Express conveys leading design at the intersection of Downeast lineage and a clear Spirit of Tradition vernacular. The 57 Classic Express modernizes pure boating enjoyment and lifestyle on the water’s edge. The yacht is easily handled and docked with a flick-of-the-wrist—she provides luxury car performance with top speeds at 40 knots.

Branded by C.W. Hood Yachts, Stephens Waring work articulates Hood’s product vision into cohesive collection of unique architectural solutions – a streamlined and thoughtful vision.

The Hood 57 project is made possible by the skilled production team at Lyman-Morse Boatbuilding who embrace our practice of innovating wood-composite construction techniques where we employ the design of multiple modular components. Like many of our projects, the 57 is built with sophisticated choreography of assembly allowing builders to enjoy space-savings efficiency for low volume, custom yacht production.

This collaboration alliance guarantees to deliver industry excellence in every detail. Launched November 2020.
