“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.”
