Max Carter Yachts
is a renowned yacht builder and designer from Auckland, New Zealand. Since the early 1960s, he worked closely with several international boat building companies. Max Carter is considered a yacht building icon by most boating enthusiasts who have come to recognize his exemplar designs in the industry. Carter’s boats are still sailing the seas today, and can often be found for sale on “yachts for sale” sites. Max Carter, the man, however, is very private and little can be found about him online. Carter’s classic, wooden boats were built to last and able to handle any type of ocean-going conditions. They were fast, sturdy, reliable, and beautiful, as well. Examples include the Max Carter Clinker Craft, 1960, Max Carter 37, 1963 and the Max Carter 59’ Tourism Vessel, also from the 1960s.
