Project: Hodgdon 41 Onyx

DeBasto Designs and Hodgdon release an innovative design concept, the 41 Onyx. A beautiful, stylish design, 41 Onyx is as easy to operate as to look at. From touch screen controls to remote monitoring, Onyx sets a new standard of technology applications in a yacht of this size. A host of innovative features such as a self-deploying integrated fender system, built-in dock line handling and user-friendly features such as hybrid electric propulsion and joystick steering bring owner operator convenience to a new level. If the sophistication of the features alone is not enough to impress, consider the level of luxury aboard. A generous open plan space below features a large berth, wrap around settee, galley and head with a surprisingly creative dual opening skylights above.  On deck, with a flair for the dramatic, the open air concept semi-enclosed deck lounge opens even more to the outside world with a multiple panel sliding skylight roof overhead. Integrated monolithic furniture runs nearly the full length of the available space offering ample stylish seating and lounging.  Both interior and exterior furnishings are client-tailored luxury weather and stain resistant fabrics from the Interiors Division of Loro Piana.  The concept of Onyx is not simply about style, it is also about execution, with standards befitting the world of superyachts where the demand for quality is second to none. To achieve such a standard, Luiz DeBasto turned to Hodgdon for the answer who have a nearly two hundred year pedigree that includes some of the world's finest superyachts and superyacht tenders. Hodgdon 41 Onyx is expected to be built in very limited quantities for only the most discriminating of owners.
