The refit will bring this 1989 Pursuit 2650 up to 2017 model-year standards.

A refit-in-progress known as the Great Boat Makeover Project, sponsored by Taco Marine, will be on display at the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

The project, featured on Ship Shape TV, involves the full renovation of a neglected 27-year-old Pursuit 2650. The refit-in-progress will be on display at the south entrance (intersection of Flagler Drive and Lakeview Avenue) during the March 23-26 show.

The project showcases products from more than 30 of the marine industry's leading equipment and accessories suppliers, including Taco Marine, Armstrong Nautical Products, Boat Outfitters, Canvas Designers, Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, Magic Tilt Trailers, Pacer Group, Quantum Paints, Taylor Made Systems, T-N-T Custom Boatworks, VectorWorks and Yamaha Outboards.

Taco Marine said the refitted boat will be auctioned at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and the proceeds will benefit the I’m Logan It Foundation, created by Taco Marine owners the Kushner family in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner.

The nonprofit foundation raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund and provides college scholarships for student athletes who exhibit values and qualities similar to Logan, including a strong sense of leadership, resilience of spirit, team pride, good sportsmanship and a willingness to help others.
