Design and Construction
Our factory spans over 1.2 million square feet and is situated beside a harbor for easy launching and hull testing.
The yard incorporates the very best technologies, modern halls, test pool, overhead cranes and hundreds of experienced craftsmen. Our facility is well on its way to becoming the biggest, best and most technologically-advanced yard in Asia and it is redefining how luxury boats are built.
AN INTERNATIONAL TEAM REALISING ONE DESIGN
By blending luxury and comfort with Bill Dixon's trademark focus on smart design and stylish aesthetics, Hudson Powercat becomes the pinnacle in luxury Motor Yacht design.
The team that make up Dixon Yacht Design are based in Swanwick Marina near Southampton in the UK. They are a highly trained and very experienced group, several of whom have been with Bill for many years. They work closely with the Hudson Yacht Group design and engineering team, consisting of project managers, naval architects, boat builders, engineers and sales and marketing professionals from around the world. It is a cohesive team who work towards a common goal: producing the world's best boats for the world's happiest clients.
MEETING THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
Our investment in CNC (Computer Numerical Control) routers means we are able to produce incredibly precise tooling. This allows us to create boats to the highest possible quality and meet the standards required of the Hudson name.
We have a 5-axis CNC router that is 18 meters long, 5.5 meters wide 4 meters tall. We also have two 3-axis CNC routers with 7 meter vacuum beds and a 2-axis CNC laser cutter with a 3 meter bed.
Infusion is the process of drawing resin through the layers of e-glass cloth and core, which ensures the strongest parts possible, while eliminating unnecessary weight. Our resin infusion process has been perfected to deliver structures free of defects and voids.
Wherever possible, robots and computers are utilized to enhance quality and efficiency. From giant 60’ overhead robots capable of carving entire boats to within a surface accuracy of 0.5mm, to computer controlled cutters that precisely shape carbon and fiberglass to the exact specification needed, our facility is truly state-of-the-art.
