Vindo 45, is a lovely classic in the great shape. Only two owners since new and continuously very well maintained and upgraded. An opportunity to buy one of the best Vindo-models made. A great boat which "has the looks"!

Vindo 45 is really one of the best models to leave the Vindö yard. She is truly a beauty, and in addition to the beauty she has a layout below deck that is surprisingly modern for the day- Everything is sturdy and proper, form that follows function where proper naval esthetics can be taken for granted.

Down below she is beautifully inviting. The layout gives clear and easy passage through the boat. The galley has the space and position to be usable both at anchor and underway at sea.. The toilet compartment in front of the mast is roomy and well positioned in the boat. Add to that two really nice cabins, one forward and and one aft, and we have a proper cruiser with the feel of a smaller ship. The cultural legacy of proper "Orust boat-building" is ever present.

"The very best workmanship with top finish throughout, a layout with three separate cabins yields lovely volume, a galley that is a easy to work in, and a large U-shaped sofa. Long-keeled, but with an optimized hull shape and relatively wide beam, made for a hull with relatively flat hull-sections, which helped with performance",
was the how Curt Gelin summarized his impressions of the Vindö 45 in his book "700 Segelbåtar i Test".
The Vindo 45 is one of the last models to leave the yard and also one of the very best of all the models.

This Vindo 45 was born in 1981, and is now in her second ownership since 1984, when the current owner acquired her.  It is easy to see how she has been loved and sherished throughout her life. She is now looking for new owners to bring joy and pride to!
