Built by Hodgdon to the highest specifications of the day, Kizbel (ex. Yorel) was designed by Eldridge-McInnis with modifications by Russ Woodin. Traditionally built at her original owner’s request, this luxury motor yacht has a surprisingly simple layout. The cabin sole throughout is teak and holly and overhead beams are capped with teak beamcaps, adding to the boat’s traditional interior. Kizbel offers accommodation for up to six guests, a crew of three, and is powered by 2 Duetz diesel engines and propelled by twin screw propellers. Complete with a modern stabilization system to reduce roll motion, she comfortably cruises at over 10.5 knots. To stay in peak condition, Kizbel returns to Hodgdon for maintenance.
"I’ve had just as much fun out of seeing this boat built as I’m ever going to get using it."

"Once one gets a closer look, the appreciation for what went into her is realized – the hours of tedious labor making sure that every piece of wood fits just so."
"Pick a good design, and go to the Hodgdons. You couldn’t get a boat built like this anywhere else in the world."
