A 28-year-old boat that has undergone a complete refit is to be raffled off in November at the Ft Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Taco Marine Project Boat Raffle Fundraiser, sponsored by Taco Metals and featured on Ship Shape TV, involves a full renovation of a Pursuit 2650. The project uses products from more than 40 US equipment and accessories suppliers.

The Pursuit 2650 will be displayed at the upcoming Progressive Insurance Tampa Boat Show from September 8-10, where attendees can purchase raffle tickets for the draw. The boat is valued at more than US$150,000.

All proceeds from the raffle will go to the I’M LOGAN IT Foundation, created by Taco Marine owners, the Kushner family, in memory of Logan Matthew Kushner. The non-profit foundation raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and provides college scholarships for student athletes.
