Hodgdon Custom Tenders is a high-end builder of tenders that complement superyachts. The company is a division of Hodgdon Yachts. Their latest product is a 10.5 limousine tender. It is a craft that marks the celebration of its 200th anniversary as oldest US shipyard. The tender – which is the 422nd hull built by Hodgdon and 10th tender built since 2011 – designed by Michael Peters Yacht Design – is the archetype of Hodgdon’s Venetian series custom tenders, which range from 8.5 meters to 12 meters.
The design is similar to those Venetian taxis, but the finish is high end. The interior is finished in leather and specialty wood veneer. It can accommodate up to 11 guests that can enjoy the high definition entertainment system, refrigerator/bar, and climate control. The entire saloon hardtop rises automatically, which allows full-height headroom.
