The 42 Grand Bora is no ordinary sports cruiser, but sets herself apart from the competition as a technically advanced “performance yacht” with serious sea-going potential and great performance.
Her twin Volvo Penta D6 – 350 horse power with Duo Propeller outdrives provide stunning acceleration, very short time to go into planning.
Her deep-v hull design is truly confidence inspiring, with a soft, dry and comfortable ride even in more challenging conditions, giving those on board the confidence to use the boat more often and to venture further afield.
The 42 Grand Bora also has a lot to offer below decks, and is one of the only boats in her class to offer three cabins with six sleeping accommodation in total and a head with separate round shower compartments.
Quality of building material, attention to details, superb high gloss light wood joinery, cherry wood floor… are some examples of what make a Windy an exclusive and exceptional boat.
GILPY is well equipped, looks really nice and has been well maintained. Kept under warehouse protection a minimum of 6 months per year every winter by her current owner. She is a very rare brokerage opportunity and waiting for her new owner for great times on board.
When compiling our “bucket list” of essential qualities for our first sports cruiser, we set some challenging criteria; a boat that would inspire confidence through great sea-keeping; a boat that would see us safely home whatever the weather; a boat that would cruise at high speed, yet return excellent fuel economy; a boat that would flatter us when maneuvering around a marina. On top of these essentials, we also wanted a vessel that would allow us to spend some memorable days at sea with family and friends on board.
She has been maintained regardless of cost on a regular basis and full servicing to her engines, outdrives and operating systems.
GILPY has fulfilled our criteria admirably. That she is also a beautifully designed, thoughtfully detailed and exactingly crafted vessel are bonuses that we were confident we were going to benefit from when we narrowed our choice of brand down to the Windy Design Team. Our next motor boat will certainly be another Windy.
