Fledgling and Hatchling  - these are the names of the custom made tenders to Feadship's Sea Owl.

The tenders were built by Maine-based yacht builder Hodgdon Yachts and were designed by Andrew Winch who is also responsible for the exterior and interior design of her mother ship. The naval architecture works are done by Hodgdon Yachts in-house.

The tenders were specially engineered and constructed using infused epoxy carbon fiber construction to meet the client’s demanding weight requirements.

T/T Sea Owl Limo

The limousine tender features the exceptional craftsmanship and sophisticated systems engineering that Hodgdon is so well known for. Outside, a defining characteristic of the AWD design is a compound curve teak clad transom exceptionally executed. Inside, the full wood raised panel teak joinery interior features separate lavatory and wash basin lockers with luxury leather seating for up to 8 guests. Systems highlights include NEMA 2000 systems integrated iPad in the salon, electrically retracting glass moonroof, electrically retracting glass aft bulkhead, hydraulically lifting roof, lithium ion smart battery system and more.

The open tender, a companion to the limo tender, features open seating for 12, a retracting hard top over the helm (for clearance into the mother ship tender garage) and a special AWD-designed and Hodgdon-engineered retracting bow ramp for the beach and shore-side guest boarding convenience.
