A very seaworthy Swedish cruiser with outstanding woodwork, nowadays only found on much more expensive yachts!

In Ferenc Máté’s book 'The Worlds Best Sailboats', he writes that Vindö Yachts “combine the strength and longevity of fiberglass hulls and cockpits with the beauty of magnificently crafted Mahogany house and Teak housetops with Teak decks to create some of the prettiest yachts in the world today".

A perfect boat for the person who wants traditional style and beautiful hull lines without a lot of the work associated with classic boats.

Currently Lying ashore at Lincombe Boatyard, Salcombe. 2014 survey available!
Bought from original Owner in 1990 by my Father, who passed the boat onto me in 2007. She has been kept in Salcombe; maintained by Lincombe Boatyard and stored undercover every winter. Only cruised around English Channel.
