Founded 200 years ago, Maine’s Hodgdon Yachts may be the oldest continually operating shipyard in the United States, but its ideas are anything but dated. Case in point: the new 34-foot limousine tender from Hodgdon Custom Tenders (a division of Hodgdon Yachts). The contemporary-looking boat sports a light-blue-green painted exterior, wood-veneer interior, and leather seats. The majority of the exterior stainless-steel hardware (including the signature flush anchor) was custom-built, guaranteeing a truly bespoke tender. Accommodating up to 11 passengers, the craft comforts with two extra-large owners’ seats, a bar with a refrigerator, climate control, and an entertainment system. Sizable windows provide up-close-and-personal views of the ocean. The saloon’s hard top rises hydraulically to allow full-height headroom and 360-degree views, and the port and starboard side windows lower to allow guests easy boarding access.
Currently berthed in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat Harbor, the tender is on the market for around $1.5 million. Upon purchase, it will be available for immediate delivery in the Mediterranean. Custom modifications to the exterior paint scheme or interior design are available for an additional price. (hodgdonyachts.com)
