Hodgdon Yachts has opened a new division called Hodgdon Yacht Services, which will provide maintenance, repair and refit services for recreational boats, yachts and superyachts up to 196 feet LOA and 400 tons.

The expansion makes Hodgdon one of New England’s largest full-service marine companies with three facilities in and around Boothbay, Maine, and about 150 employees.

Sandy Spaulding, former president of Hinckley Yachts and Hodgdon Yachts senior business advisor, will be president of the new division.

“We are pleased to continue growing the business as we approach our 200th anniversary, a milestone we will celebrate in 2016,” Hodgdon CEO Timothy Hodgdon stated in a news release. “This new division perfectly complements Hodgdon’s world-renowned custom boat building, custom superyacht tenders, interiors and defense divisions.”

Hodgdon will celebrate the expansion with an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 29, at its Southport boatyard. Learn more at www.hodgdonyachts.com.
