Continuing the success of these two proven platforms, Hodgdon Tenders is now offering all electric versions of their 10.5m forward helm and 12m aft helm limousine Venetian line tenders.

The Venetian tender line has been designed in collaboration with Michael Peters Yacht Design and engineered by Hodgdon Tenders' in-house team. The electric version of these two tenders were developed without compromising the custom details and luxury features that are the hallmark of the Venetian line.

Both boats will be powered by Vita Power, a high performance fully electric powertrain for the recreational marine sector. The V3 and V4 fully electric powertrains from Vita Power deliver 220kW / 295hp and 440kW / 590hp respectively.

"At Hodgdon we have always endeavored to push the boundaries in terms of materials, technology, and design to optimize performance. Our move into providing all electric tenders is further evidence of this and addresses increasing demand from the market for zero emissions tenders onboard superyachts," says Audrey Hodgdon, Director of Sales and Marketing. "We're pleased to have developed two tenders that offer benefits that can only be achieved with electric, while remaining true to the Venetian line's style and quality."

In addition to its high performance, Vita Power is the first fully electric propulsion system compatible with DC fast charging significantly reducing the charging time using Vita superPower, the first fully marinised charging system.

The CEO of Vita Rory Trahair adds, "We are delighted to be working with one of the foremost brands in the yacht tender market to develop what we believe to be the first fully electric superyacht tenders. The use case for electric tenders for superyachts is proven and the technology is available today".

Both the 10.5m and 12m Venetian line electric tenders are fully engineered solutions with build slots available.
