Hodgdon Yacht Services opened an office in Monaco and named Cyril Le Sourd as the company’s new European sales and marketing director.

The Maine-based superyacht and tender builder’s Monaco office will be led by Le Sourd, who is responsible for developing Hodgdon’s business activities for new sailing and motoryachts, custom tenders and superyacht interiors in the region.

Le Sourd will be a direct liaison with clients and will oversee key projects, forge business relationships and facilitate the development and growth of Hodgdon Yachts.

Le Sourd’s career in yachting started 14 years ago after a degree in naval architecture. He has held a range of technical and commercial positions, including five years at the OCEA shipyard as a naval architect and seven years at the CMN shipyard (starting as a project engineer and eventually leading the sales and marketing for yacht building).

The opening of Hodgdon’s Monaco office comes on the heels of the opening of the Newport, R.I. office. The Newport office will serve as home base to Eric Leslie in the newly established position of sales director for Hodgdon Yacht Services, offering boatyard services as well as superyacht refit services at Hodgdon’s facilities in Maine.

The Newport office also will be the home base for superyacht industry veteran Holy Paterson, who has served as Hodgdon’s marketing manager since January.
