Refitted yachts: Broadwater

Built by Feadship, Broadwater took home the Neptune for the refitted yachts category. During the refit the yard installed a completely new interior designed by Adam Voorhees, added a sixth stateroom, created a dining/living space aft of the bridge, installed an exterior gym and spa, and created a beach club in her stern. Technical aspects were also upgraded and modernised.

These included the AV system, the conversion of all areas to LED lighting, and the installation of updated navigation and safety systems throughout. In addition, the original ‘Flume Tank’ passive anti-roll system was removed, releasing internal volume that was reassigned to storage space. The yacht also received a full exterior repaint, changing her hull colour from white to blue, and a new set of tenders and water toys. The judges were impressed that this extensive work list had been carried out on Broadwater in just eight months, and admired both the quality of workmanship and the modern design of the new interior that rejuvenated a deserving yacht. They also commented that the change in hull colour served to hide windows and portlights giving the yacht a cleaner and more sophisticated appearance.

Judges’ Commendation: White Star

White Star has now been dramatically reborn and was considered eminently worthy of a Judges’ Commendation.

Rebuilt Yachts: Genesia

Genesia-wsa-winner

An entry that was particularly admired for the tenacity of her owner in restarting and completing what had initially been a failed project. The judges saw Genesia as the ultimate rebuild, starting out as a commercial tug at the end of her working life, and finishing as a capable expedition yacht. The extent of the work invested in this rebuild was truly remarkable.

Genesia was stripped of her original interior and machinery as well as substantial elements of her superstructure before being taken back to clean steel, at which point rebuilding commenced. While her new appearance remains commercial, this yacht has the rugged ‘go-anywhere’ look, together with the necessary equipment, for a yacht that has been created to tackle the challenges of long-distant cruising in both high and low latitudes. The judges also noted that her interior suitably reflects this use, being modern and eminently practical as well as comfortable.
