Hodgdon to offer all-electric superyacht tenders
US boatbuilder Hodgdon is now offering what it claims will be the world’s first superyacht tenders powered entirely by electric power. Both tenders will be powered by electric motors produced by Vita Power, which makes high-performance, fully electric drive trains for the recreational marine sector. The V3 electric power train offering 295hp will be used for the smaller tender and Vita’s 590hp motor will power the larger version. In both cases the motors will power stern drive propulsion.
