A 27-year-old Pursuit 2650 was completely restored in the Great Boat Makeover Project, which is sponsored by Taco Marine and has been featured on “Ship Shape TV.”

The boat will be on display in the Marine Accessories Pavilion at the 2017 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, or ICAST, which is being held this week in Orlando, Fla.

The refitted boat will be auctioned or raffled at the 2017 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, and the proceeds will benefit the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation, which was created by Taco Marine owners, the Kushner family, in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner.

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

The Great Boat Makeover Project showcases products from more than 40 equipment and accessories manufacturers and suppliers, including Armstrong Nautical Products, Boat Outfitters, Canvas Designers, Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, Interlux, Magic Tilt Trailers, Pacer Group, Quantum Paints, Taco Marine, Taylor Made Systems, T-N-T Custom Boatworks, VectorWorks and Yamaha outboards.
