US-based Hodgdon Yachts has had a successful start to 2012, as it has announced it has signed contracts for 4 custom tenders.

This news succeeds the shipyard’s two custom tenders for Oceanco’s 86m motoryacht Seven Seas.

The first two tenders are for another Oceanco client. The 10.5m custom limo tender and 10.5m custom open tender have been designed by Michael Peters Yacht Designs (MYPD), and their construction specifications developed by A. J. Anderson of Wright Maritime Group. The MPYD limo tender design was a Showboats Design Award finalist for 2011, and the new construction will be delivered to the Netherlands towards the end of 2012, preceded by the delivery of the custom open tender in the Autumn.

The second pair of tenders to be constructed by Hodgdon Yachts are custom design from London-based Andrew Winch Designs, and are for a project at a Northern European shipyard. The custom limo tender will measure 8.5m, and will feature a retractable full coverage moon roof, a guest head, and has a cruising speed of 30 knots from its Volvo D-6/400 power, while the open tender will feature a beachable ramp. Both tenders are due for delivery in early 2013.
