Motoryacht debuts at Newport, R.I. forumPosted on
A classic Trumpy 63-foot motoryacht has emerged from a nearly complete bow-to-stern refit in just 37 days to serve as a floating showcase for marine products at select East Coast U.S. boat shows. The yacht, Showtime, made its debut Tuesday at the American Superyacht Forum in Newport, R.I. It will be open for public tours at eight boat shows, beginning Friday with the WoodenBoat Show in Mystic, Conn. The complete show schedule is posted at www.showtimeyacht.com.
When not scheduled for a marine industry event, Showtime will be available for charter.
The Trumpy refit took place at J & J Marine in Somerset, Mass.
“What has been accomplished in just 37 days is nothing short of remarkable,” said marine public relations consultant Jock West, organizer of the promotional tour, in a statement.
More than 30 manufacturers and suppliers have provided new products and services for the project. These include: Sea Fuels Yacht; L&L Electronics; J&J Marine; Yacht Record; Raymarine; Awlgrip; Home Port Marine Marketing; Billy Black Photography; Odyssey Batteries; Soundown; Pannish Controls and K-Cor.
