Hodgdon Yacht Services has today announced that repair work on the 47.15 metre ketch Asolare (ex: Scheherazade) has been completed. She was built by Hodgdon Yachts and completed in 2004 and, at the time, was one of the largest cold-molded yachts ever built.
“As the original builders of Asolare, we are pleased that we were able to complete this important repair work,” said Timothy Hodgdon, President and CEO of Hodgdon, in regards to her latest refit. “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, she displays a combination of classic styling with cutting edge technology. She features interior design by Andrew Winch Designs, who utilised fiddleback sycamore with a unifying burled walnut molding throughout.
The work included replacement of the mizzen mast, repairs to the aft cabin and deck areas, extensive maintenance to the electrical power, seawater, hydraulic and mechanical systems, and an upgrade to the computerised sail handling controls.
“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-foot schooner earlier in the year,” said Sandy Spaulding, President of Hodgdon Yacht Services. “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.”
