DEBORAH V is an excellent example of the very well known, recognized and extremely appreciated Windy 29 Coho. She has had only one owner and has been handled very carefully. They have nearly never opened full throttles. Berthon France delivered this beautiful Windy in May 2018 at Mandelieu La Napoule from where she sailed to her new homeport at Presqu’Iles de Giens, close to Hyeres – Var. She has wintered ashore inside a secured area under shrink wrap and has been fully serviced as per Volvo Penta guidelines. Running on the V8 -380 horse power Petrol engine, this Coho sparkles – and will run up to 42 knots when conditions allow. She compares very well with new, has a smart neutral colour scheme and is brand new to the market.
“DEBORAH V” has been lightly used, mostly for day trips in Saint Tropez, around Porquerolles and Port Cros Island.
She is very easy to manoeuvre with her bow thruster, is comfortable at the anchor, smooth and powerful when cruising – we always feel secure on board. We have also had a few overnights stays and it is extremely comfortable. She feels very safe and sure-footed even in poor conditions and the engine is quiet, smooth and very responsive. She handles fantastically and is a joy to helm. We have done everything we could to keep her in “as new” condition.
DEBORAH V has fulfilled our criteria admirably. She is also a beautifully designed, thoughtfully detailed and exactingly crafted vessel which were bonuses that we were confident we were going to benefit from when we narrowed our choice of brand down to the Windy Design Team. We will miss her, but our boating plans have changed!
