Anthony Johnson is the owner of the 65 that Winter Custom Yachts has in build. He’s coming out of a 52-foot Cabo and wanted something bigger for himself and his family (two sons fish with him often). Cameron, 11, recently won an award from The Billfish Foundation, and Brady, at the tender age of 7, already has two billfish catches notched on his belt, including a white marlin he caught in Madeira, Portugal, last summer. A more traditional 65-foot convertible was out of the question for Johnson. “I like to be on the same level as the crew when I fish,” he says. “Otherwise I feel like I’m on a charter. Everybody else is having fun down below, and I’m by myself up on the flybridge.” Because Johnson has the family on board so much, he wanted a salon too. That forced him to go custom — nothing on the production express market fit his needs. Nobody builds expresses with a salon on the accommodations level. And that, friends, is precisely why the custom boatbuilding industry exists in the first place.
