Well-maintained single Volvo Penta KAD44 260HP Windy 28 Ghibli from 2001. PACO 2 has bowthruster, bimini, holding tank and windlass options - with cockpit upholstery renewed in 2014. Superb handling, seriously good sea-keeping and beautiful to look at.
Possible place in a dry stack at Port de la Rague.
The 28 Ghibli’s raked bow, sculpted spray rails and fine entry make her a dynamic, thoroughbred sea-boat with exceptionally kind handling.
Her crew is protected by the wrap-round windscreen with a full fixed inner grab-rail, and the foredeck is accessed through the walk-through centre section. The ergonomic driving position encourages fast use of this fine hull, with complete security for driver and crew. Two forward-facing bolstered driving seats sit either side of the smoked companionway, and the cockpit is split into two zones by the large aft pad and its adjustable backrest. The cockpit has a refrigerator, stowable table and masses of seating for entertaining and lounging alike.
Her cabin is fully fitted out in the highest quality materials to create a cosy, classy feel. The forward sofa converts simply into a full double berth, and she has a fully-fitted galley and heads compartment. So – for useful accommodation with razor-sharp handling and exceptional quality, all in a 28’ hull – look no further.
Windy 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 principles 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.
‘PACO 2’ sleeps two people in one forward sofa/double berth conversion, with infill table and cushions. A separate heads compartment aft to starboard faces the cherry-trimmed galley to port.
