The Windy 31 Zonda has proven to a real benchmark in sports boat design and was reviewed by Motor Boats Monthly as the “best hull we’ve ever tested” and awarded the accolade of 2012 Motor Boat of the Year.
The Windy 31 Zonda – WINDY TIM was delivered in 2016 and has benefited from one owner since new, who has taken notable care of her. She has been used for day trips in Mallorca with the occasional adventure further afield. She has been carefully stored ashore in a heated shed each winter and covered.
She was specified with the Volvo D6-400 diesel engine, which offers the best possible balance of performance, economy, service cost and reliability. When compared to twin engine installations, the D6-400 offers improvements in noise, vibration and substantially better acceleration. The engine also benefits from the balance of the extended 5-year engine warranty, which was specified at additional cost by the vendor at new.
The 31 Zonda enjoys an RCD CAT B rating (offshore) and she has always been designed for use on the sea unlike cheaper alternatives. This notable ability combines with an impressive cruising range.
Her inventory includes a bow thruster, electric windlass, decent chart plotter, VHF radio and teak decking in both the cockpit and on the bathing platform. Additional features also include the hot water system (heated from the engine and shore power) and rudder indicator, which make handling in the marina even easier.
The hull was specified in white GRP from build and was professionally wrapped. There are a few minor marks which can be attributed to normal wear and tear, but they are not substantial. If preferred, it would not be difficult for the new owner to remove or replace the vinyl wrap.
Her specification also includes the new generation canopy system, which can be quickly used to enclose the cockpit and converts the area into a “cockpit saloon”. WINDY TIM was also specified with the bimini upgrade, which uses separate canvas and reinforced poles for sunshade.
In summary, this is an impressive example of the Windy 31 Zonda, which has been well cared for since new and will present extremely well on any inspection.
