General Details

All supervised by the leading experts from Broward shipyard.

The project created a brillant and functional design allowing owners and guests easy access in and out of the water on a 2000 nm voyage on one tank of fuel.

Broker Comments
The current owner embarked on a project to refit, rebuild, modernize and extend the best Broward buy on the market.  The project began and finished at Rolly Marine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Bill Murray of Murray & Associates, LLC., naval architects oversaw the project. Pat Dupree, of Broward Yacht Design, was hired to design and re-configure the super structures, modernizing the style with the 2000 series Browards.  Steven Tran, Broward Shipyards top fabricator, was hired to oversee the aluminum welds and construction.  Improving the quality of the vessels bottom and tankage was a primary focus.  In addition, the foredeck was extended to create a large bosun locker with gull wing access. All aspects were complete with a goal of improving the performance, range, and aesthetics. This 98' Broward   is now offered for sale, and is ready to continue producing charter income or take the new owner's family to a far away island for a unique view of the world.
