Default after market facelifts for performance boats?

Aside from taking your old boat to its manufacturer for a facelift, say, paint, windscreen, etc. is there anybody that does that? is it on a custom basis or is there a website that offers update kits for boats?

I mean making an old boat look newer. Suppose i had a 10 year old Cigarette and wanted to re-do various parts of it to make it look new? But, suppose I didnt want to go to the manufacturer because it might take too long. Maybe there is a company that pre-fabricates windscreens and the like.

Speak to board member SEAN, he redid a 28 cig, and updated a cafe racer. He'll know where to source some stuff.
I don't know if you plan on doing all the work yourself, but MRD would know where to get stuff and install. Also, there is JimRay next to MRD that does great glass work and painting. Jim has updated many a sport fishing boats.

Try New England Fiberglass Repair in Norwalk, CT. Damn good work, but busy place. 203-866-1690. They're in the same building as Rex Marine in SoNo

Thumbs up Re: after market facelifts for performance boats?

Aside from building boats they have an endless stream of other manufacturers boats coming in for major and minor repairs and refurbs. The pics are of a 1979 20' Sutphen that had been screwed up by some back yard rigging. Needed a new transom. The pics don't do the refurb justice. They have countless photos of their projects.
