Winninghoff Boat Builders

Post by Winninghoff Boats » Thu Sep 28, 2017 1:08 pm

Want to introduce ourselves to the members of the AAB community! Winninghoff Boats has been in business for over 40 years but has recently gone under some changes. Earlier this year, the founder of Winninghoff Boats, Jack Winninghoff, sadly passed away at the age of 92. Jack was a pioneer in the aluminum boat industry and poured his heart and soul into what he did. Jack left the company to myself, Bill Stone, because I had the pleasure of working with Jack for over 25 years. Not only did I consider Jack a dear friend but also learned a lot from him and will continue to use my knowledge and passion to continue building aluminum boats under the Winninghoff name.

For those who are not familiar with Winninghoff, and the work we do, we are an aluminum boat building company. We approach every boat build differently and cater specifically to our customers exact needs. From custom length, width and deck layouts, we're here to help make the customers ideas come to reality. Beside boat building, we can help with boat modifications, ladders, water tanks, fuel tanks, truck racks, trailer modifications and gangways. If you have an idea the needs to be built with aluminum, we can help.

I will post some pictures of our past projects and will post updated pictures of current projects we have going on. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Our latest project was a 36ft gangway for a marina in Gloucester, MA. The hinge system you see in the picture is not of this actual ramp but what we use on all our gangway systems.

This project came in with some hull issues and a leaking gas tank. We cut in a new access panel in the deck, removed the old gas tank, sandblasted and repaired the hull, painted the inside of the hull, made a gas tank bed and new gas tank with all new fittings and hoses.

This boat build was for a local fisherman who has a pretty interesting job. He catches horseshoe crab for scientific research. Once they're caught, he brings them to a lab where blood is drawn from them, but just enough blood to stay alive. Once the lab is done with the crab, he returns them to the ocean so they can be caught once again. This is an 18ft boat with an open layout and rear seat box. You'll also see 2 large holes in the transom and that's so he can easily clean the deck of the boat and let water and debris run out the back.

Here is our 24ft research vessel we did for Cornell University. There was a bunch of custom touches we did with this boat including multiple davits, pot hauler with mount, gallow system for nets and side sonar mounting.
