Refit: Jarvis Newman 46

Vessel: Jarvis Newman 46
Name: Acadia
Owner: March Durlach
Hailing Port: Harpswell, Maine

After meeting the GIBY team at the Newport Boat Show, this boat owner decided to cruise all the way from Charleston to Harpswell to work with the GIBY crew on the makeover of his newly acquired Jarvis Newman 46.

“This boat has good bones,” says Steve Rowe. “And we have a long history working on her. In 2008, we did a refit/repower job for the boat’s previous owners that included a new engine, new generator, new refrigeration, and a new inverter charging system.”

This fast paced refit was tightly scheduled and completed in under 10 weeks.

“Our project management methods and dedicated team allow us to successfully turnaround a project like this, even in the middle of our spring rush,” says Steve.
