This Windy 27 Solano is an elegant day-cruiser, designed around a single 350hp petrol driven engine and sterndrive. The advanced deep-V hull designed by Hans Jørgen Johnsen delivers superlative performance, matchless seakeeping, and an impressive top speed of around 42 knots.
ARROW is still with her first her owners who have used her as a very enjoyable day boat and have kept her in fantastic condition. She does have ample space to stay on board if you wish and of course, she boasts modern styling and certainly looks the part. She has the camper canopy in stylish light grey if you are planning to spend longer on board and there is a Bimini to shade the sun. Very easily erected with the Windy electric tensioning canopy system.
Her hull offers superb performance while keeping everyone safe as you deep within the cockpit. Her handling is very impressive for a 27ft boat with responsive and fun handling. Her owners have kept her in a dry stack, which means she is incredibly clean below the waterline; there is not a barnacle to be seen!
Many impressive features which are trademarks throughout the Windy range can be found on board, from the sliding sunbed back rest, deck fridge and even fender locker, she has it all!
ARROW has been a joy to own. She is easy to drive and handles superbly even in challenging conditions. We have undertaken passages – long, up to 150 miles, and short, by ourselves, with friends or our children and grandchildren, who love being aboard. To entertain, the layout caters easily for 6 or 7 aboard, and we cook using a small BBQ on the bathing platform, making for a great day-out.
She’s beautiful to look at – a head turner wherever she goes. The finish on the boat is faultless and making it easy to keep her looking like new.
We’ll be sorry to part company with her, but age has caught up with us – so our long association with Windy boats must come to an end.
Windy’s are a product of traditional craftsmanship, enhanced with the aid of modern technology. The latest technological innovation is the Wintec hull concept, which gives improved performance, greater strength and reduced noise throughout the vessel. The hull is reinforced with advanced multi axial glass fibre matting and Divinycell core. This allows a reduction in the boats weight of up to 20% whilst offering noticeably improved stability.
All the Windy models are CE-labelled. This means that Windy meets all the requirements laid down for quality control documentation and product liability within the EU. In the process of obtaining approval, the company has also introduced new methodologies construction principals and more advanced construction production equipment, resulting in more cost-effective and quality oriented processes in-house. But above all, Windy is a “Boat Builder” and not a manufacturer of boats, a philosophy which characterizes their production staff and all those within their distribution network.
