The 37 Grand Mistral is a sublime piece of design and craftsmanship from Windy Boats AS. The Hans J. Johnsen hull is forgiving in a seaway, yet precise, easily driven and immensely strong – giving the driver great control and confidence in the ability of this beautiful sports-cruiser. This Open version gives exhilarating wind-in-the-hair performance, and is in her original ownership from new. She has the classic Windy blue hull livery and blue Sunbrella cockpit upholstery to set off the teak cockpit sole and side decks.
This 37 has been wintered ashore following winterization, and professionally maintained regardless of cost (invoices available). We note that the sterndrive seals, shafts, prop hubs, trim pipes, actuators and steering rams have been replaced by the local Volvo Penta agent. The aft cabin, oven, hob and microwave have never been used, with the original forward double berth mattress having been replaced with a new latex mattress. Her teak has been wholly replaced with yacht specification new teak for the 2016 season, with her Sunbrella upholstery having been replaced for the prior season.
The 37 Open was rated as the Best UK Drivers Boat by Motor Boats Monthly – amongst stiff competition, and is every inch a modern thoroughbred.
“We have owned this boat for some 8 years and she has given us hours of enjoyment. Windy make a fantastic boat and her handling is absolutely superb. She has given us the confidence to take her on long journeys across open sea and even when we have been caught out with the weather, she just cuts through the waves and gets us to the destination without getting wet!!! The only reason for selling is that Berthon took us on a test drive of the 39 Camira and we fancy a change. We will be very sorry to see her go but we are looking forward to our next Windy boat.”
