2/1/17: “Best Sailing Yacht Refit” Award goes to New England Boatworks Project
Swan 80 Selene wins Best Sailing Yacht Refit

NEB receiving award for Best Sailing Yacht RefitAt the Refit International Exhibition & Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL New England Boatworks was awarded “Best Sailing Yacht Refit” for our work refitting an 80-foot Swan built in 2000.

This refit required close collaboration between our own internal departments as well as Marine Hydraulic Consultancy (MHC), Van Gorkom Yacht Design, and Harken.

The scope of this project included replacing the existing hydraulic system and hardware, providing the necessary structural solutions, rewiring the entire yacht, upgrading all mechanical systems, and cosmetically refinishing the entire yacht from masthead to the bottom of the keel.

The end result of this project provided the customer with hydraulic and electrical systems that rival some of the best new builds, all with the appearance of having always been part of the vessel. Read the full refit project description here.
