NASCAR Driver Jeff Burton Gets Ready to Get Behind the Wheel of his Dream Fishing Boat

When NASCAR driver Jeff Burton is not racing, you will find him behind a different sort of steering wheel: of a fishing boat out on the open water. Burton loves to fish so much he is having a dream yacht custom built.

The Virginian Pilot reports that Burton is having a 46-foot Hatteras-style sport fishing boat built for him by Jarrett Bay Boatworks in Beaufort, N.C., outfitted with powerful Caterpillar marine engines and Zeus Pods outdrive system.
