“It’s an honor for us to receive the Innovator of the Year award,” said Timothy Hodgdon, President of Hodgdon Yachts. “We are very proud of our reputation in the industry and our ability to deliver a variety of very complex, high-quality project requirements. Since I took over in 1984, I knew that I wanted to take the company to an increased level of quality and innovation. We’ve moved from traditional wooden boat building to advanced composite construction. A special thanks goes to the people that work at Hodgdon for their extraordinary level of talent, ranging from design and engineering, through all aspects of production.”
