About Us

Hudson Yacht Group, the parent company of Hudson Powercat, is as diverse as it is dynamic. With project managers, naval architects, boat builders, engineers and sales and marketing professionals from around the world, they are a cohesive team who work towards a common goal: producing the world's best boats for the world's happiest clients. Hudson Yacht Group launched their first boat in 2007 and over the last ten years the company has continued to grow and grow. They began by building International J/80 One-Design sports boats, producing over 100 of them for domestic and international clients and quickly expanded their repertoire to include larger projects such as Pearl 75s, Pearl 50s and Gunboat 60s. Today HYG offers the full spectrum sea fairing vessels, from day racers, to the famous HH Catamarans, luxury performance sailing yachts currently dominating the multihull world over in the Caribbean. 

Our boat building facility is in Xiamen, China, and has over 300,000 square feet of modern factory space and 400 employees. It is a purpose-built, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that was set up eight years ago by Hudson Wang. The yard has a history of success in building high-end performance cruising catamarans in both sail and power. Whether using aerospace materials or conventional GRP, the yard is fully self-sufficient with multiple large CNC capabilities and the ability to build strong composites to beautifully finished interiors.
