Broker's Comments

I always knew Vindo yachts were a bit special but this one is gorgeous. She has had three meticulous owners and clearly a lot of money has been spent on her in recent years.

I know traditionalists scoff at fibreglass hulls but this yacht is a brilliant mix of a classic yacht and a great functional sailing yacht. Add in her lovely lines and plenty of brightwork and you have a real winner.

I see a lot of boats and rarely do I come across one in such good order. If you are after a Vindo, then this one must be on your list - in fact you may as well only look at this one.

By the way, this is a Vindo 40 which refers to the sail area and not the length.

To discuss this boat further, please call Steven of Boatshed Falmouth.
