“The amount of planning, organization and coordination required to effect this successful work is formidable,” Hodgdon Yachts president Tim Hodgdon said in a statement. “Our talented team, along with the vast experience and leadership of our project partners, Tim Hacket and Brandon Linton, continues to strengthen our core competence in advanced composites.”

The success of large infused composite parts is increasingly giving designers worldwide the confidence to specify advanced composites over other materials, given their many advantages, the company said.

“We are pleased to be one of a handful of shipyards in the world capable of executing projects like this and to be a leader in this technology in the U.S.A.,” Hodgdon added.

The company said it will release more details later this year.
