ESSENCE is absolutely stunning but that phrase seems barely adequate to describe the transformation made to this classic Broward RPMY. ESSENCE’S 2009 refit is a masterpiece of workmanship that has to be seen to be truly appreciated. The attention to detail combined with superb craftsmanship has produced a truly magnificent yacht.
