His next project takes a turn from go-anywhere-utility to sleek and sexy French styling as Winch resumes his 13-year relationship with French builder CMN for the Line 65 series.
Inspired by the French Riviera of the 1960s and the lines of Citroën sports cars, the concept is an evolution of the CMN Line 60, which produced World Superyacht Award winners Cloud 9 and Slipstream.
Winch and CMN took suggestions from charter guests and crew on how to improve upon the Line 60 for the next generation.
‘Everyone loved the circular, open dining room on the aft deck, but wanted more space behind it,’ Winch says. Other requests included an elevator, bigger spa, a beach club and more cabins with more versatile sleeping arrangements.November 2011
