Refit: Little Harbor 60

Vessel: Little Harbor 60 Sailing Yacht

Name: Life Uncharted
Owner: Keith L.
Hailing Port: Newport

The owner of this not-so-little Little Harbor 60 traveled to Maine specifically to engage the GIBY team in a major refit project. After purchasing the boat in FL, the boat owner was eager to partner with a yard that could help him update the boat and add the custom features he desired. The end goal? Prepare the vessel for cruising south and for living aboard full-time.
