The Jewel of Atlantic Beach
The sight of Hull W-22 from Winter Custom Yachts surfaces the special place custom Carolina boats have in the hearts of boat lovers. She features a magnificent curved transom, flowing broken shear line and beautiful Carolina flare. This 60’6″ craft was built to be a traveling boat as well as a family boat. Designed for long-distance trips to Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the Pacific, Hull W-22 is a standing testament to the craftsmanship and care of the boatbuilders at Winter Custom Yachts. Powered by twin Caterpillar C32 ACERT 1,700 hp diesels and boasting a 1,925-gallon fuel reserve, she is well equipped in all areas. Amongst the world’s finest over 60 feet, its rare combination of power, handling, amenities, and styling make it truly one-of-a-kind.
“[Hull W-22] will spend time in the Bahamas, and then fish the tournaments in North Carolina and Bermuda. She will head for the Pacific next year. The Fletchers wanted a boat capable of extensive travel with extra fuel, the ability to fish for multiple species, and all the amenities of home.” -Tim Winters
Wolverine’s cockpit is built to afford the owner’s family plenty of room to fish and enjoy each others’ company. A Release Marine chair with a massive eight-hole rocket launcher and tray is the centerpiece of the cockpit. Strategically-placed tuna tubes on the port and starboard gunwales with lids that are a positive fit into the tuna tubes make life easy for a crew. There are also tuna tubes on the transom within the combination livewell/fish box. Simple design elements like this are the custom touches that owners of a Winter boat can expect.The mezzanine is complete with gaff, mop and chamois storage below the seat, and also features cockpit freezers on both sides.
Remarkable Living Space
Hull W-22 is notable for its spacious salon, accessible through an all-teak sliding door. The interior is immaculately crafted with beautiful teak veneer work, which was cut from a single log. Taking this extra measured allow the Winter crew to produce a consistent grain throughout all living areas. A flat-screen TV rests inside a teak cabinet to starboard. The aft end of the cabinet contains a storage area for cameras and is heated by the engine room to minimize lens fogging when traversing from the cool salon to the cockpit on a hot day. Built into the forward end of the cabinet is a comfortable bucket jump seat facing an L-shaped sofa to port. A raised settee sits forward on the starboard side. Below the settee are two drawers that can house an assortment of lures, teasers, and other equipment. A magnificent marriage of design, functionality, and custom elements went into Hull W-22’s build.
