The new Hodgdon Superyacht Limousine Tender will soon complete the features of a megayacht due to be launched in a northern European shipyard.
The name of the model says it all: Hodgdon Superyacht Limousine Tender. The word tender could mislead to imagine a small rib cradled on the swim platform. But as we are talking of megayachts, the tender itself is a proper cruising boat.
Little images, some news
The picture we have leaves much still unsaid, and it’s the only one coming from the Superyacht Tender Division of Hogdon, named Hodgdon Custom Tenders. This Hull 418 is an authentic tender limo, 12 meter long, and will be delivered to a northern European shipyard at the end of June, when the team will have completed the construction and briefed the future crew.
Features and trim of Hodgdon Superyacht Limousine Tender are top notch: Hull 418 boasts a climate-controlled cabin with ten seats, while another six passengers will have their place outdoor. The cabin is finished with maple joinery and leather armchairs. Embark can be from aft or starboards, thanks to a sturdy stainless steel gangway, while the composite top above the pilothouse can be lifted and lowered to fit the superyacht garage.
The design of Hodgdon Superyacht Limousine Tender is by renowned Michael Peters from Sarasota, FL. Once famous mainly for his Class 1 offshore catamarans, the American designer has created many yachts including the Hogdon Venetian Series.
Powered by twin Volvo Penta with sterndrives, this maxi tender can reach a top speed in excess of 35 knots. Not an offshore, but a sporty pace for a limo.
