Winter 29

If you’ve never had the opportunity to examine a Winter Custom Yacht then there’s something you should know. These tricked-out masterpieces are meticulously crafted with one thing in mind—wide open bites in the world’s deepest oceans. The company’s 29 follows that tradition. Based on a proven Carolina design, the Winter 29 features a sharp entry with moderate transom deadrise for improved stability and performance in less than fair conditions. Her topside screams Outer Banks with unmistakable Carolina flare shadowing attractive tumblehome. Designed to harness the reliable power and fuel economy of a single 420 HP Mercruiser, a recessed propeller pocket further improves efficiency and reduces draft. The combination of a moderate beam and sleek profile make this elegant pocket rocket a well-rounded, high-performance fishing machine. Tim Winters and Will Copeland, the team behind Winter Custom Yachts, take tremendous pride in producing vessels that exceed even the highest expectations. Before any fabrication begins, the experienced design team creates a detailed 3D rendering to see what the boat will look and feel like, inside and out. The end result is pure perfection.
