Hodgdon Yacht Services has announced today that repair work on Asolare has finished. Built by Hodgdon and completed in 2004, she was one of the largest cold-molded yachts ever constructed.
Timothy Hodgdon, president and CEO of the firm, commented on the refit, “As the original builders of Asolare, we are pleased that we were able to complete this important repair work.” He continued, “The company’s connection to this yacht – combined with our technical expertise – uniquely positioned us for the execution of this project.”
Designed by Bruce King, Asolare displays classic styling with modern technology. She features interior design from Andrew Winch Designs, who utilised fiddleback sycamore with a unifying walnut molding.
Work on the vessel included replacement of the mizzen mast, maintenance to all electrical power, seawater, hydraulic and mechanical systems, and upgrades to the digital sail handling controls.
Sandy Spaulding, president of Hodgdon, said, “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-ft schooner earlier in the year.”
“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.”
