Renowned yachting industry corporate manager and marketing professional Ed Roberts is the new director of sales at Boston Boatworks. Central to Roberts’s role is oversight of the company’s new branded series, the 52 Offshore Express Cruiser (BB52) designed in collaboration with award-winning naval architect Doug Zurn and Lon- don-based Winch Design. The BB52 line was launched in April 2023.

Twenty-seven years after Boston Boatworks launched its first high-performance, technology-forward racing sailboat, the company announces the development of the Boston Boatworks 52 Offshore Express Cruiser (BB52). As exciting as this new model is for the entire team, the genesis of the yacht stays true to the company’s original objectives of integrating composite engineering, high-strength construction, and artisanal workmanship, scaled to limited-production efficiencies. For the BB52, the builder partnered with venerable yacht designer Doug Zurn and renowned interior design firm Winch Design
