SWEET CAROLINE – a classic Windy 26 Kharma with a modern twist
December 10th, 2018
With this year’s boating season firmly on the aft burner, it is a great time to check out what is on offer for next year, and we have a beautifully presented 2016 Windy 26 Kharma under wraps, cosy and warm – and available to view ashore, at short notice, here at our base in Lymington.
Full specification available here – [OFF MARKET]
Sharing the same hull as the near-legendary 25 Mirage, the 26 features an easier canopy system, re-profiled dashboard, a smartly trimmed cabin and useful extra under-deck fender storage.
With Volvo’s boisterous 220HP new-generation D3 diesel providing the grunt – she will top out effortlessly at close on 40 knots – with a relaxed 24 knot cruise returning sub-20 litre per hour consumption!
Whilst she is fitted out with everything you might need – bow-thruster, holding tank, Raymarine plotter, electric windlass and shore power – she is offered at a great saving over her new price.
The boating press said:
“If you want maximum on-water kudos without the running costs of a far larger vessel, this Norwegian beauty is the perfect buy.”
“And this is a hull designed to be used. You could happily take the Kharma across the Channel, a fact supported by well-protected helm and navigator seats with lots of grab-rails dotted about.”
“The D3 is proving to be a superb engine and here it delivers power exactly where you want it, accelerating to 20 knots from a standing start in under six seconds, rocketing from 20 to 30 knots in three seconds and delivering plenty of torque to push you through turns. As expected the hull is super-smooth upwind and simply breath-taking running with a sea, flying across the waves with absolute poise.”
Please do have a look at what we think here:
This is a very rare opportunity to find a well maintained and super-capable pocket-cruiser at a great price.
