The Vindo 32 is a traditional long keel cruising sloop built in Sweden in sufficient numbers to get the details right - being the smallest model in the fleet, she benefits from slightly oversized gear and is an extremely able and safe cruiser only limited by fuel and water capacity. The interior is entirely original. This boat has sadly been neglected due to other commitments and is offered as a project to some one wishing to bring a 'grand old lady' back to her glory days. CLASSIC QUALITY IN NEED OF RESTORATION. Where is Gryff Rees Jones when you want him?
