Andrew Winch has a strong love of sailing that goes back to his childhood, spent on the Southern coast of England. This personal experience drew him to designing production sailboat models, then to the Jeanneau brand in the 1990s. In 2014, a design partnership with Philippe Briand led to the creation of the Jeanneau 64, with the aim of shifting perception about the brand, establishing coolness and desirability. It was such a huge success that it led to their further collaboration on the 54, the 58 and the 51 ranges as well. Today, Winch Design continues to contribute to the Jeanneau Yachts line, designing the most comfortable and practical of living spaces for their performance ocean sailing yachts.
