Maine builder Hodgdon Yachts is promoting itself to the international market by exhibiting Sept. 19-22 at the Monaco Yacht Show.

The company sent invitations asking media to attend its “A taste of Maine” reception Sept. 20 at its booth.

“Maine is a special place. We can boast of more than 5,600 km of saltwater coastline, the best lobsters on earth, a rich heritage in boatbuilding and the most authentic people you’ll find anywhere on the planet,” the invitation reads. “These are the roots of America’s oldest boatbuilder. Everything that we build ... comes from that history.”

Hodgdon’s display will include its 50-meter “modern classic sail concept,” military rescue craft and tenders.
