Yachts win Refit Excellence awards

ADVERTISEMENT

Several yachts received recognition for their yard periods at the second annual Refit Excellence Awards during the Refit International Exhibition & Conference in Ft. Lauderdale in late January.

The award for best poweryacht refit between 50 and 100 feet went to M/Y Reel Steel. Best poweryacht refit over 100 feet went to M/Y Scout. The award for best sailing yacht refit went to S/Y Swan 80-002. M/T Cuttin’ Up was awarded for best accomplishment for a yacht refit.

An independent panel of judges selected the winners based on not only the finished yacht, but on the teamwork, problem-solving and efficiency of everyone involved in the refit, including the boatyard, captain, owner, designer, surveyor and management.

Nominations for the 2018 Refit Excellence Awards will open late summer.
