Westport motor yacht No Bad Ideas completes refit

13 May 2021• Written by Olivia Michel

The 39.62 metre superyacht No Bad Ideas has completed a year-long refit at Fort Lauderdale-based shipyard Bradford Marine.

No Bad Ideas was originally launched by Westport in 2004 to a design by William Garden.

As many as 24 different vendors collaborated on the extensive project, which began in April 2020 and was completed in record time despite the constraints of the pandemic.

“There are a lot of very good yards in South Florida, and Bradford Marine was very happy to be picked for this extensive refit,” commented Bradford Marine CEO John Kelly. “The dream the family had for their yacht M/Y No Bad Ideas has resulted in a stunning yacht that we are very proud to have been able to bring to life,” he added.

No Bad Ideas now has larger deck spaces including new outdoor common areas for guests, a new hardtop and radar arch and a fresh layer of hull paint. She has also undergone a complete interior refit led by Floridian firm A La Mer.

Her on board tech including AV systems, lighting and navigational tools has also been upgraded and Naiad zero-speed stabilizers have been installed.

New features on board No Bad Ideas include a hot tub located forward at the bow and an extended flybridge complete with a drinks bar and fresh teak. There is also now a wet bar on and grill on the boat deck.

Her previously traditional interiors, which can accommodate up to 10 guests and seven crew, have been redesigned in a modern and minimalist style with an elegant monochromatic colour scheme.

Interior highlights include a dedicated dining area completed by artwork running the full length of the wall, and sizable TV screen for watching films in the main saloon.

The refit of No Bad Ideas is the largest project undertaken by Bradford Marine since Kelly acquired ownership of the firm in 2019.
