Announcing: Hodgdon Design and Engineering Services

In a climate where nearly everyone in the marine industry remains reluctant to increase fixed overhead, Hodgdon Yachts is pleased to announce the formation of Hodgdon Design and Engineering Services, a division offering sub-contracted design and engineering services.

Over the past three years Hodgdon has built a large and very experienced engineering staff. The newly formed division is aimed primarily at supporting existing Naval Architecture and Yacht Design practices, Refit Shipyards and Yacht Manufacturers as well as Hodgdon’s own boatbuilding operation.

Services include:

  • Structural Engineering and Design:  Specialists in Advance Composites
  • Systems Engineering and Design:  From the basics to the latest in integrated control systems
  • Vessel Classifications and Standards:  CE, ABYC,ABS, LLOYDS AND RINA
  • Shipbuilding Construction and Fabrication Design:  Precision 3-D modeling and Optimal Construction Plans

With an extensive background in both yacht and military vessels, Hodgdon brings a unique perspective to engineering services – experience at real integration with the actual building process. We not only execute the engineering of structures and parts but build them as well. This means we know how to deliver accurate and precise details that work.

“We have a first class core competency in engineering and the beauty is they really understand boat building” said Tim Hodgdon, CEO of Hodgdon Yachts.

Hodgdon is a nearly 200 year old family owned boat builder with a rich heritage that reaches back to the days of clipper ships. Today, this East Boothbay, Maine company is a leader in high tech composite construction while maintaining exceptional skills for world class traditional and modern interiors. The company’s four divisions include high end megayacht interiors, custom sail and power yacht construction (to 60M), military contracting and now design and engineering services.
