Hodgdon Tenders announced today that they launched a new 8.0 meter (26’3″) open tender, which is the first in their new Crossover line.
The Crossover line’s naval architecture and styling is by Philippe Cabon and Cyril Le Sourd and the engineering is by Hodgdon Tenders’ in-house team. It has numerous unique features including a folding helm console, retractable carbon fiber t-top, custom wrap-around fender, and water jet drive. Ideal for beach landing, it also includes a bow that opens and folds out to become a platform step for easy beach access. The tender has capacity for 12 guests on board and is powered by single Volvo D3-220 engine.
“We’re very enthusiastic about the new Crossover line with its contemporary styling and modern look,” said Audrey Hodgdon, Director of Sales & Marketing. “It allows us the opportunity to offer more to the market, as we remain committed to our classic Venetian line which continues to be very successful with orders currently under construction.”
The Crossover line includes Open, Beachlander, and Limousine tenders ranging from 8.0 meters to 11 meters.
Delivering to a European shipyard, Hodgdon’s Service and Support team will re-commission the tender upon arrival and provide crew training.
