Hodgdon Yachts opens Rhode Island office

Hodgdon Yachts will formally announce the opening of a sales and marketing office in Newport, R.I., during the Newport International Boat show, which opens today.

The announcement, along with updates on other Hodgdon projects, will take place at a reception for the press at the Hodgdon Yacht Services exhibit Friday at 5 p.m. at Tent G 37.

The new office will serve primarily to promote Hodgdon boatyard and shipyard refit and maintenance services now under the banner of Hodgdon Yacht Services, with facilities in Southport, Boothbay Harbor and East Boothbay, Maine.

The Newport office will complement Hodgdon's locations in the Boothbay region and its new office in Monaco.

Hodgdon Yacht Services was launched in the second quarter this year under the leadership of president Sandy Spaulding to organize all Hodgdon service activities with the acquisition of the former Boothbay Region Boatyard in Southport Maine, the Wotton's Wharf dockage facility in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, and existing superyacht refit activities at the East Boothbay shipyard, the builder said in a statement.

The press reception also will highlight news about other Hodgdon projects, such as the upcoming launch of the 100-foot pre-preg racing sailboat Comanche, the refit of the 118-foot Noelani, the build of the 65-foot Dave Pedrick-designed cold-molded sailboat Piera and the superyacht tenders under construction.
