Winch Design partner with Boston Boatworks and Zurn Yacht Design on the development of a 52ft day cruiser

Winch Design is delighted to announce a new partnership with Boston Boatworks and Zurn Yacht Design on the development of the Boston Boatworks 52 Offshore Express Cruiser (BB52).

The 57ft (17m) LOA express cruiser takes advantage of Boston Boatworks’ efficiencies as a limited-run manufacturer of series yachts, softening the boundaries between a production boat and a semi-custom project. Prospective owners are able to choose from several options of interior configuration and finishes developed by Winch Design addressing a wide range of functions and lifestyle needs.

The offshore capable day boat is fast and distinctive, with a flexible two-cabin interior that feels contemporary yet authentic. The lightweight interior captures the spirit and colours of Nantucket, taking inspiration from the deep blue of the open waters and the warm deep orange glow of sunset cruising, across leather detailing, feature furniture and surfaces. Winch designed the space to be light and spacious, incorporating a multitude of elegant and intelligent features to enhance the lifestyle on board.

By combining Winch Design’s uncompromising standards of interior design, Boston Boatworks’ industry-leading construction and Doug Zurn’s renowned naval architecture design expertise, the BB52 Offshore Express Cruiser is poised to quickly earn its place among the best day cruisers afloat.

“We are excited to work together with the team at Boston Boatworks and Zurn Yacht Design on our very first American offshore cruiser. As a brand that is all about lifestyle, we are delighted to be involved in a project that resonates with us and our clients. In every design we create, we strive to create a comfortable home on the water. A client should step on board and feel the harmony between interior and exterior, experiencing a high level of comfort and build quality. The BB52 achieves all that—and more.” Jim Dixon, Managing Partner & Creative Director, Winch Design

“The BB52 embodies our 27 years of experience building the best high-performing offshore yachts, with some of the world’s most knowledgeable and avid boaters. This is the boat we’ve always wanted to build, for the dedicated express cruiser owner-operator that we know best. The fit, finish and functionality included in our inaugural offering reflect everything we’ve developed from building over 350 boats, and we have concentrated the best solutions into one design to call our own.” Scott Smith, Boston Boatworks CEO and Founder.

The BB52 continues the long-standing collaboration between Boston Boatworks and Doug Zurn of Zurn Yacht Design. “The BB52 is the culmination of years of experience building light-weight, efficiently driven powerboats combined with contemporary, timeless styling to appeal to discriminating yachtsmen.” Doug Zurn, Founder, Zurn Yacht Design
