He's been over promising, over charging and under delivering for years. Lots of very upset past owners. Taking a boat designed for c 18 without tunnels and shoving c 32 in there and adding tunnels makes for a submarine.
Welcome back oldpete, it's been a while.

Heard a similar story from another winter customer.

he was so disgusted by the process he’s selling the boat, doesn’t even want to use it.

He's good at getting social media to post his stuff and rave endlessly about the boats. The truth is far away from that.

Coming from a guy with a plastic boat, it is a pretty interesting story and resonates some rumors that I had heard. He has built some pretty boats for sure and hate to hear bad things about a Carolina builder.

towers are about that price. I think the owner has a problem with being quoted one thing and then being bait and switched non stop thru out the whole build.

plus if you read the comments the builder was adding a 15% upcharge to the tower price, which they had specifically agreed that he wouldn't do on any third party work.

Boat is a stunner. Absolute shame if this builder is actually a BS artist. I imagine there is another side like with every story. Not hard to under promise and over deliver.

"On behalf of Winter Custom Yachts, we would like to acknowledge that we do not believe in social media as a platform to air private grievances. We are beyond proud of Margot’s Eyes. As a custom builder, we tailor each yacht to our clients specific requests. As with any one of a kind high caliber yacht, perfecting takes time, especially when incorporating the latest Yamaha 425 engine package. While we respect our client’s opinions, we disagree with his analysis of the build experience and final product."

With an end product like that you'd think over-delivering would be much easier especially after 30(?) custom boats .
