Hodgdon Yacht Services, the Hodgdon division that is committed to refit, repair and maintenance services of recreational yachts and boats, recently acquitted refit and repair work on 46.9 meter ketch Asolare at the facilities in Boothbay in Maine.
Started in the year 2003 by Hodgdon Yachts, Bruce King designed vessel, with interior design by Winch Design, was the largest cold-molded yacht ever made at that time. Hodgdon chief executive officer and President Timothy Hodgdon, said that as the real builders of Asolare, they are happy that they were able to complete this important repair work.
The company’s link to this yacht – combined with their technical expertise – uniquely positioned them for the execution of this project.
The work included substitute of the mizen mast, fixes to the astern cabin and deck regions, extensive sustentation to the sea water, electrical power, hydraulic as well as mechanical systems, along with a climb to the computerized sail handling checks.
Hodgdon Yacht Services President Sandy Spaulding told that they were very excited to have a yacht of Asolare’s complexity and size to further advance their reputation for refit as well as repair of superyachts, having also completed a fifteen month refit of a 116-foot sailing ship in 2016. Also, he would like to thank Jeremy Wurmfeld and Carl Persak of Persak & Wurmfeld who, as the Owner’s Representatives, worked very closely with them to achieve the desired outcome.
