As Maine boatbuilder Hodgdon Yachts prepares to exhibit at the Monaco Yacht Show later this month, work continues on a 100-foot monohull sailing racer that is one of the largest hull infusions ever in the United States.

Comanche, set to launch later this month, is said to be a “blazingly fast” carbon fiber yacht designed to compete in major ocean races around the world and break records on existing ocean crossings.

The maxi-yacht will be a “flat out record-breaker,” according to a report by Yachting World magazine.

Here is a look at work in progress on the yacht:

The Monaco Yacht Show will be held Sept. 24-27.

Having started in 1816 during the era of clipper ships, Hodgdon is America’s oldest boatbuilder. Still family-owned, today the East Boothbay company has evolved into a leader in advanced composite construction while maintaining exceptional skills for world-class traditional and modern interiors.

The company’s divisions include high-end superyacht interiors, custom sail and power yacht construction, defense contracting and custom superyacht tenders.

The company has more than 150 employees.
