The Vindö 65 was introduced in 1980. It was offered in three versions, the sloop rigged 65 S, the ketch rigged 65 Mix and the 65 MS which is ketch rigged with a raised superstructure. The Vindö 65 is a solid construction, built to cross the great seas, the hull is made of fiberglass, it is long keeled with the rudder mounted on the aft edge of the keel. The deck is built in wood and the superstructure has a beautiful classic mahogany finish.
Vindö 65 X-TRA is a Mix version built in 1984 for a German first owner. In 1986 it was bought by a Swedish couple (the current owners) who sailed the X-TRA around the world between 1988 – 1992. It has since been used in Scandinavia, mainly on the Swedish west coast, as a floating summer house. Since 1993 (for 29 years!) the X-TRA has been serviced and stored in a heated hall at Vindö Marin during the winter.
Both masts are roller masts and have been recently updated and painted (white). The main mast is hydraulically operated and the mezzanine mast is manual. An electric furler for the genoa was installed in about 2018. The teak deck and mahogany superstructure are in good condition. The sails have been regularly serviced and are in good condition. The well-protected center cockpit has a fixed windshield with opening center window and a beautiful mahogany steering wheel.
The layout offers an aft cabin with two berths and plenty of storage space. The longitudinal galley is located directly to starboard of the descent stairs and the navigation space directly to port. Aft of the navigation area there is storage space for sailing clothing and an extra cooler box. The lounge has two sofas and a folding table. In front of the bulkhead there is a cabin with v-berth, toilet and even more storage space.
If you are looking for a well-built, beautiful, classic boat in good general condition, you should not miss this well-maintained Vindö 65 X-TRA!
