The superyacht tender division of Hodgdon tenders has announced the launch of its latest 8m open tender, the first in its new Crossover line.

The Crossover line’s naval architecture and styling was the work of Philippe Cabon and Cyril Le Sourd, in collaboration with engineering from Hodgdon’s in-house team.

With the capacity for 12 guests, it has numerous features which include a folding helm console, retractable carbon fibre t-top, custom wrap-around fender and water jet drive.

The latest model from the Maine-based boatbuilder also includes a bow that opens and folds out to become a platform step to make for easier beach landing.

"We're very enthusiastic about the new Crossover line, with its contemporary styling and modern look," said Audrey Hodgdon, Director of Sales & Marketing. "It allows us the opportunity to offer more to the market, as we remain committed to our classic Venetian line, which continues to be very successful - with orders currently under construction."

The Crossover line includes Open, Beachlander and Limousine tenders ranging from eight to 11 metres
