Refurbishing and updating can add thousands of dollars to the value of your boat.  The sticker shock associated with the purchase of a new vessel of equal size leads many to consider a refit and refurbish.  If done properly and in the right area of the country it can be cost effective and provide your with a like new yacht at the fraction of the cost of new.  Gene Gammon has done several for himself and clients over the years and is available as a consultant or project manager for your vessel.
