M/Y Broadwater, built originally as Rasselas by Feadship, left the facilities of Royal Huisman Amsterdam for her Atlantic crossing after an extensive conversion of her interior and exterior.
Huisfit —Royal Huisman’s dedicated division for refit, rebuild and renewal— was commissioned to undertake this major project following an earlier visit to the shipyard in 2019. The scope of work ranged from various upgrades to comfort and esthetic aspects of the yacht (inside and out), to changes relating to classification requirements based on the Owner’s brief, which was to convert Broadwater into a “modern and livable home away from home” with charter capability.
The new exterior and interior styling was created by yacht designer Adam Voorhees, who was inspired by the Owner’s input to define an abundance of desirable modifications. MCM Newport’s Peter Wilson assisted Broadwater’s experienced Owner with the selection of the refit shipyard and oversaw the conversion project at the Huisfit facilities at Royal Huisman Amsterdam.
