2022 Winters Custom Yachts 53 Express

From the custom yacht builders at Winter comes a product crafted to outperform with distinction.

Since 2006 Winter Custom Yachts has strived to perfect each clients custom build. We are currently home to Hubert, North Carolina located in the Eastern part of the state.

We believe that in boat-building, perfection is something to never stop striving for. Winter yachts are superior because we are never satisfied with what has worked well in the past, we are always working for more.

North Carolina custom builder Winters’ second largest express has all the luxury amenities and features one would expect of a high-end versatile sportfish yacht. REEL RISK is not only rigged for serious offshore fishing, capable of accommodating a number of anglers in her large cockpit with air-conditioned mezzanine and fighting chair, she is configured for entertaining family and friends dockside or at the sandbar, for comfortable overnight trips to the Bahamas or dinner cruises. A removable dive ladder attaches to hidden hinges at the transom door for scuba diving and swimming. Fuel efficient twin 1550hp MAN diesels easily cruise her at 40 knots with Twin Disc joystick controls for easy owner-operator responsive, nimble handling and seaworthy performance in just about any sea condition.

Why Wait for a new build, when you can have REEL RISK now!
