Pursuit refit project set for display in Miami

The Great Boat Makeover Project is sponsored by Taco Marine and featured on Ship Shape TV.

The Great Boat Makeover Project, sponsored by Taco Marine and featured on Ship Shape TV, involves a complete renovation of a neglected 27-year-old Pursuit 2650.

The refit-in-progress will be on public display for the first time in the Center Court at the Feb. 16-20 Miami International Boat Show.

The project showcases products from more than 30 of the marine industry's equipment and accessories suppliers.

John Greviskis, host of Ship Shape TV, will be at the boat show to discuss the project and many of the products that have been installed on the boat, along with representatives from Taco Marine and the other participating suppliers.

When the refit is completed later this year, the boat will be auctioned. The proceeds will benefit the I’m Logan It Foundation, which was created by Taco Marine’s 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 values and qualities similar to Logan, including a strong sense of leadership, being resilient in spirit, team pride, good sportsmanship and helping others.
