Bradford Marine announced two winners in its free bottom-paint-job raffle after last month's Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.

"Originally, we planned on having only one winner, but enthusiasm for the raffle was so strong that we decided to give two awards, one for yachts 61 feet and larger and the other for yachts 60 feet and less," Bradford Marine's Jimmy Floyd said in a statement.

The winner in the 61-feet-and-above category is the 62-foot Ocean Alexander motoryacht owned by Ocean Alexander and managed by Jim Castengera.

The winner in the 60-feet-and-below category is the Ocanos, a 55-foot Monte Fino motoryacht owned and operated by Terry and Clive Lewis from Sunny Isles in Miami.
