Windy Boats are a Norwegian based boat builder whos success has been built on producing robust, well manufactured, luxury craft with exceptional sea keeping qualities. The Typhoon 43 is an excellent example of this ethos and provides a craft that not only looks good but performs and handles far beyond your expectations. Bearing in mind that this is a shaft driven boat, she will cruise happily all day at 29 knots and has a top speed of 39 knots.
The yacht is in excellent condition with many owner improvements and a thorough maintenance schedule. There is nothing on this boat that isn't working and the additions made will only enhance your enjoyment and comfort when on board. Not one inch of this boat hasn't been studied and where required rectified or made better. From the new canopies, mood lighting, heating and new "Perma" teak to side decks and bathing platform, you and your new neighbours will be impressed by this real "head turner" of a craft.
Below decks is beautifully appointed with satin finished pear wood flooring and cabinet work, complimented by luxurious cream leather and alcantara clad bulkheads. The ambience is heightened by the use of mood lighting throughout making your stay relaxing and memorable.

This area will convert to a very spacious occassional double or act as a decent single berth.

This is one of the few Typhoon 43 models with the elongated bathing platform. The teak here and on the side decks has been replaced with the "Perma-Teak" composite alternative eliminating time-consuming maintenance and future problems.
The teak in the interior cockpit is the original and in excellent condition.

The upper cockpit has the helm position to starboard with individual pilot and co-pilot heating. These are electrically controlled and will rise and fall to your desired position. Opposite on port side is an additional L-shaped bench making for companionable cruising.
