Hodgdon’s Latest Limousine Tender Is a Tony Transport

Ready to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September, this versatile beauty has power and panache…

A sibling to the twin tenders aboard Steven Spielberg’s superyacht Seven Seas, the new 34.5-foot limousine model from Maine-based boatbuilder Hodgdon, is set to receive the star treatment itself when debuted at the Monaco Yacht Show, September 23 through 26. Conceived by Michael Peters Yacht Design, the carbon-composite cruiser is the latest of 10 Venetian series tenders from Hodgdon since 2011, and the 422nd boat built during the company’s 200-year history.

Able to comfortably carry 11 passengers, the tender features a salon hardtop on hydraulic risers to increase headroom, facilitate boarding, and accommodate 360-degree views for those onboard. Depending on weather conditions, the large side windows can also be automatically lowered or raised for optimal comfort. Optional leather and wood-veneer interior treatments and stainless-steel exterior hardware add distinctive touches to an already sophisticated appearance, while a high-definition entertainment system, built-in bar, and climate control ensure a perfect party environment. When it comes to power, however, the boat is all business, with a Volvo Penta D-6 DPH sterndrive making possible a top speed of 34 knots.

WATCH

The tender will be available for showings—by invitation—a week before the Monaco show, with first deliveries made after the regatta of Les Voiles de Saint-Tropez that runs from September 26 through October 4. (hodgdonyachts.com)
