Boat Details

Thoroughly well-presented, maintained and updated Windy 31 Tornado. Her twin KAD32 170HP diesels were rebuilt by Volvo Penta in 2013 - with 90 hours run since, her hull is glossy and smooth, and she is meticulously presented. With recent Garmin touch-screen plotter, canvas hood, microwave and serviced ready for the 2017 season - she is very much turn-key. With mid-twenties cruise, good economy, sharp lines and stunning handling - the Tornado is quite simply a fab sports boat.


Windys 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.
