Hodgdon Yacht Services, the division of Hodgdon that is dedicated to refit, maintenance, as well as repair services of recreational boats and yachts, has successfully completed the repair work on the 46,90m (154’) ketch ASOLARE at their facilities in Boothbay, Maine. Launched in 2003 by Hodgdon Yachts, ASOLARE was the largest cold-molded yacht ever built at the time. She was designed by Bruce King, with interior design by Winch Design.
“As the original builders of Asolare, we are pleased that we were able to complete this important repair work,” commented Timothy Hodgdon, President and CEO of Hodgdon. “The company’s connection to this yacht – combined with our technical expertise – uniquely positioned us for the execution of this project.”
The work included replacement of the mizzen mast, repairs to the aft cabin and deck areas, extensive maintenance to the electrical power, sea water, hydraulic and mechanical systems, and an upgrade to the computerized sail handling controls. All three of Hodgdon’s locations in Boothbay took part in the project, including its Shipyard in East Boothbay, its Marina in Boothbay Harbor and its Boatyard on Southport Island.
“We at Hodgdon Yacht Services were excited to have a yacht of Asolare’s size and complexity to further advance our reputation for refit and repair of superyachts, having also completed a 15 month refit of a 116-foot schooner earlier in the year,” commented Sandy Spaulding, President of Hodgdon Yacht Services. “I also want to thank Carl Persak and Jeremy Wurmfeld of Persak & Wurmfeld who, as the Owner’s Representatives, worked closely with us to achieve the desired outcome.”
