Restoration of classics and rebuilds of historical yachts. Huisfit has an established track record of success with such projects. Structural work, repairs and conservation of the yacht’s full scope: hull conservation, sail handling, exterior, interior and board systems.
Although rebuild projects by Huisfit are never a “typical refit”, the scope of such projects is widely regarded as a newbuild, both by those involved at the shipyard and by outside observers. Thanks to the owners of historical rebuild projects, these yachts will not become forgotten history: each one will remain a living sailing legend.
