Hodgdon expands

Oct 6, 2014 by Guest Writer

Maine-based shipyard Hodgdon Yachts Services has opened a sales and marketing office in Newport, R.I., to promote its refit and maintenance services. It recently opened an office in Monaco.

Hodgdon Yacht Services was launched earlier this year after the acquisition of the former Boothbay Region Boatyard in Southport. It also includes the Wotton’s Wharf dockage facility in Boothbay Harbor, and existing superyacht refit activities at the East Boothbay shipyard.

Eric Leslie will run the Newport office.
