About this Sailboat:

WINDALIER is a rare combination of new and old blended together to make a modern yacht with all the beauty and benefits of a classic wooden boat. She was extensively rebuilt in 1995.

Numerous planks and frames were replaced to make her hull as sound as the day she was launched. New teak decks and cabin sole both from sarasota teak decking systems, replaced the original in 1995. This added greatly to the integrity of the vessel.

A new Yanmar was installed in 1995 and an espar diesel heater added for the comfort of the crew.

On deck hydraulic winches, roller furling, Vang and backstay adjuster were positioned to control the new rig. A track was added to the foredeck to make the staysail self-tacking. These enhancements combined with the weight reduction offered by an all carbon rig(boom,masts and spinnaker pole) have greatly contributed to ease of handling, performance and safety.

These improvements have been proven in her racing record. With many 1st,2nd and 3rd trophy placements (including Corinthian ocean race,joel white trophy,eggemoggin reach regatta, camden classic yacht regatta, Olin stephens trophy race and the s&s cup).

Windalier shows incredible value in todays market, don’t miss the chance to own a truly beautiful classic yacht with excellent performance thanks to her modern sail handling.
