Preparing Boats for Offshore Passages

Only MRP Refits Delivers Port-to-Port Service to Carib1500 Sailors!

Converting your sailboat from a coastal cruiser to a boat capable of safe offshore passages can be a challenge. Perhaps you have read lots of articles on the subject, but are confused about the most cost effective approach for your specific situation. Perhaps you know exactly what needs to be done, but do not have the time to select the best subcontractors and oversee the work. We can help.


Miles Poor (of Karina, Tayana 55) has helped owners prepare their boats for World Cruising Club rallies since 2006.  He knows what it takes to prepare a boat for a safe and comfortable offshore passage. 


Recent projects have included work on many styles and types of boats:  Hylas, Jeanneau, Island Packet, Najad, and Tayana. And catamarans, too.

MRP Refits is the authorized warranty repair service for Hylas Yachts.
