Broker Comments

'Your Fault' is a VERY special boat! With only 145 Engine Hrs and presented in superb condition she represents a rare opportunity to purchase one of the best 50ft Sport boats ever made.When the Xanthos was launched in 2006, the nautical press were invited on board – and here is what they thought:-Dag Pike (Mr Branson’s excellent navigator on Virgin Atlantic Challenger’s record-breaking Atlantic crossing) wrote “Testing this Windy 52 was like finding the Holy Grail. In my search for perfection in boat design this boat comes as close as I am likely to get. It shows it can be done. You can get a boat that makes sense to a seaman and also offers sophisticated living – sea and harbour requirements do not have to conflict.”Dave Marsh (one of the most knowledgeable, focused and capable journalists we have been lucky enough to work with) simply commented: “No need to even slip the mooring to feel the fervour of Windy’s obsession. Just sit down at the helm. Without doubt, this is the finest sports-cruiser helm position I have driven from.”If this all sounds good, it is simply because the 52 is one of the best sports-cruisers ever conceived, and the proof of the design and build is the way that these boats have lasted. There are very few (if any in fact) modern production craft which will offer the same combination of ride, speed and quality.Windy Boats have never been cheap, as their old advertising strapline reads – “In life, you get what you pay for..” – and the 52’s full teak decks, immaculately polished timber interiors and floors, and fully trimmed accommodation, bear this out.
