Broker’s Comments

BALOO is a highly-specified, extremely well maintained example of the superb Windy 31 Tornado from Windy Boats of Norway. The fine entry and true deep-V hull profile make her a true driver’s dream; handling perfectly whether you are in the marina or out in the rough stuff. The steering is absolutely beautiful, with strong performance at higher speeds and the very planted, neutral trim, will give you great confidence.

BALOO is powered by a pair of the popular KAD 44 diesels, offering fantastic balance, performance and economy from Volvo Penta, with top end performance reaching an impressive 45 knots! The KAD 44 is a 6-cylinder compressor, after-cooled and turbo-charged block, unleashing 260hp and driving a duo prop stern-drive leg for great performance.

With a full-beam aft cabin and heads with shower off the main saloon, galley, convertible forward berth, the Tornado’s accommodation is surprisingly versatile and offers real weekend potential, in a 31ft hull. The cockpit is laid in teak and reassuringly fitted deep inside the hull, making it safe for the whole family, which is one the secrets to Windy’s success.

BALOO has been in her current ownership for 2 years and in that time no expense has been spared, including invoices for Volvo annual servicing on both the engines and outdrives. Winterizing, anodes and antifouling has taken place ashore annually and the owner and previous owners have done a great job keeping her updated through the years. BALOO is listed for sale due to the family growing and reluctantly having to buy a bigger boat.

BALOO is turnkey ready and is in great condition for her age, must be viewed to be appreciated.

Owner’s Comments

BALOO has been fantastic for my family and I. Comfortably sleeping my three kids, wife and I for weekends. She gives huge confidence when in a rough sea for a 31ft boat handling anything the Solent has thrown at her. Windys have a different class of quality and we’ve enjoyed that in the time we’ve had her. Cruises perfectly at 26knots but with the big KAD44’s will sprint up to 40knots with ease. Only reason we regrettably are parting company is my ever growing kids needing something slightly bigger for extended weekends and holidays away. She’ll be a real gem for anyone that owns her.
