The Hacker Boat Co. built a 33-foot tender for the 242-foot megayacht Odessa II.

“This is a new design for us, one that speaks to the needs of the megayacht industry,” Hacker president and CEO George Badcock said in a statement. “We are delighted to have had the opportunity to build the tender for a yacht as large and beautiful as Odessa II. We are now working on potential tenders for several other yachts and look forward to growing our tender business.”

The boat includes a 24-inch swim platform and has a 9-foot, 3-inch beam. The draft is 24 inches and the boat is powered by twin Yanmar 6BY2 260-hp diesel engines.

The deck is constructed of mahogany and the hull and topsides of okume/epoxy/fiberglass.
