Ocean Pearl was a great boat with aging systems and a definite need of refurbishment.  Her owner had the good fortune to engage a couple of young boatbuilders, John O’Donovan and Patrick Dole, to do the job and the results are quite amazing.

    The best of the best starting with all teak and monel fastenings. All it takes is money. Nice to see that craftsmanship is still available at any price.

    You guys are just great craftsmen, if I ever win the big lottery O’Donovan & Dole would be building my boat.
    Cheers, Walter

    Great video, nice design work on the re-fit. Choosing to have the analog gauges vs digital gauges is a nice touch while condensing the nave station. Love the in-polished bright work with the teak finished/unfinished. Amazing.
