Floridian Roger LeFranc won this 1989 Pursuit 2650 in a raffle that raised more than $130,000 for juvenile diabetes research.

Roger LeFranc of Melbourne, Fla., won Taco Marine’s project boat in a drawing on Nov. 5 at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The 1989 Pursuit 2650 underwent a two-year refit and nearly 1,800 raffle tickets were sold to benefit juvenile diabetes research, raising more than $130,000 for the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation.

The two-and-a-half year project was chronicled on “Ship Shape TV” and the boat showcased products from more than 40 marine accessories suppliers, including Yamaha Marine Group, Armstrong Nautical Products, Boat Outfitters, Canvas Designers, Glen Raven Custom Fabrics, Interlux, Magic Tilt Trailers, Pacer Group, Quantum Paints, Taylor Made Systems and T-N-T Custom Boatworks.
