Best Refitted Yacht: BROADWATER
BROADWATER left the facilities of Royal Huisman Amsterdam in 2020 following a major conversion by Huisfit. The classically-styled motoryacht was originally built in 1994 as Rasselas by Feadship. The scope of the conversion at Royal Huisman’s dedicated division for superyacht refit, rebuild and renewal, varied from various upgrades to the yacht’s comfort and aesthetics, both inside and out, to changes relating to classification requirements. The brief from BROADWATER’s experienced owner was that his yacht was to be converted into a “modern and liveable home away from home” with charter capability.
The new exterior and interior styling was created by the talented yacht designer Adam Voorhees, who was inspired by the owner’s input to define an abundance of desirable modifications. Peter Wilson of MCM Newport assisted BROADWATER’s owner with the selection of the shipyard and subsequently oversaw the conversion project, which benefitted from one of the heated halls at Royal Huisman’s non-tidal deep water site located at just 15 minutes from Amsterdam Schiphol airport.
