C.W. HOOD 32

It can start on a chilly New England night and a simple sketch pad capturing a penned hull and mast. Such is the story of the C.W. Hood 32 daysailer. From a quick sketch and a big idea, a sailboat is born.

Every calculation and detail is brought to life through the freedom of design.

The C.W. Hood 42 Sailboat

This design sprang from the idea of “having your cake and eating it too!”.  We wanted performance ease of handling, a big cockpit and an inviting interior. All of those blended nicely to become an attractive sailboat. She can be appointed with a diesel or fully electric drive system/ Aluminum or carbon rig. We envision tiller steering but can accommodate an owner’s wish for wheel steering.

One of the highlights of the design is what I call a “transition zone”. This is a sheltered seating area between the cabin and cockpit, with standing headroom under the dodger. It has an open bulkhead that is easily closed so no one is let out of the fun and comaraderie we all enjoy as sailors.

50' Sail

The C.W. Hood 50 Sailboat

The C.W.  Hood 50 is an all out around the buoys competitor. I would categorize her as an “extreme classic”.  She is lightweight, stiff in a breeze and able to carry a large amount of sail with her asymmetrical deployed. A lightweight carbon rig and a hull of either cold molded epoxy , carbon matrix or a carbon foam core system. Either way, she will be fast, beautiful and a winner!

The C.W. Hood 71 Schooner

The Hood 71 is an idea Chris Hood had for a modern schooner that a client could take for example, on the Halifax Race. A boat that would reach well at an amazing turn of speed and look superb doing it, with cold molded construction and carbon fiber spars. A classic yacht recognizing the spirit of tradition.
