?Unbelievable ? Spectacular ? True Yacht Quality ? A Must See?, all words horribly overused and abused by listing brokers in our business. However, after over 18 years in the business, this listing broker was more than impressed when first boarding ?Windborne?. Yes, she is a Formosa 51 ketch. Yes, her hull was laid up in 1974. Yes, she is the most expensive Formosa 51 ever to be offered for resale, but YES, you really do need to consider this yacht if you are looking for a world cruiser with character, strength and a will to take care of you at the dock or at anchor half way around the world. The Pride of any Yacht Club or Marina. Passers by can't help but take a second look.
In most ways, ?Windborne? should be called ?RE-BORNE?. As you will see, over the last few years virtually every component, system and surface on this yacht, has been replaced, upgraded or improved. The total verifiable cost of this refit is right at $650,000 meaning that other than provisions, ?Windborne? is much more than just ?ready to go?.
