Broker's Comments

This 52 Xanthos is presented in stunning condition – enjoying two particularly fastidious Owners from new, who have tended diligently to her maintenance as required, and it shows in her glistening exterior, and interior, appearance. As good as it gets for performance motor-cruising in an absolutely top-drawer environment.


Never in the sun, her paint is pristine and her interior is simply spotless. A truly lovely boat. The photos in this brochure were taken on the 3rd October 2016, and display her effortless performance under way in some testing weather. We also have a high quality aerial video, which can be sent upon request. Combining the highest standards of production build with elegance, luxury and capability, this 52 is a very special performance sports-cruiser.

Owner's Comments

Intuition is the fourth Windy that we have owned. All have been great boats and lovingly cared for.


The first owners of Intuition now own another Windy 52. They sold Intuition (then Motivation) to the Windy factory at the time they purchased their new one in around 2010/2011. Having bought a previous boat from the same owners we knew that Intuition would have been meticulously looked after. Intuition underwent a complete review and health check and also was completely painted in the Windy factory in Sweden in 2011/2012. When we saw her at Windy in Sweden in Dec 2012 she looked like a brand new boat. The reason for the paint was only due to some minor discoloration on the original gel coat but as Windy is a high grade boat builder they felt it necessary to complete.


Everything that needed doing had been attended to. The inside of the boat was and still is in its original form, really showing how well looked after she has been. Both the original owners and we have maintained her meticulously and whilst under our ownership she has been regularly maintained by both Berthon and SAL Maine, the Lymington based Volvo Agents. Many people that we meet on our travels have commented on her, how fabulous she looks and they simply cannot believe she isn't a brand new boat. 


As we have a home in Lymington, she has been used mainly as a day boat. Our busy lives has meant that she has only been used to live aboard on the odd occasion that we ventured further afield. The rear cabins have only ever been used on 1 or 2 occasions in her whole life. 


We can vouch for the fact that she is not only a beautiful looking boat but she is very capable at sea. She is very safe and extremely comfortable underway, also in tough conditions. She is much faster than her competitors and her build quality is truly remarkable, second to none.


We have loved every minute of owning her and we are extremely proud of her. 


Needless to say will be very sad to see her go. She is by far the best and most complete boat we have owned over many years.


Windy are a product of traditional craftsmanship, enhanced with the aid of modern technology.  The latest technological innovation is the Wintec hull concept, which gives improved performance, greater strength and reduced noise throughout the vessel. 


All the Windy models are CE-labelled.  This means that Windy meets all the requirements laid down for quality control documentation and product liability within the EU.  In the process of obtaining approval, the company has also introduced new methodologies, construction principals and more advanced construction production equipment, resulting in more cost-effective and quality oriented processes in-house.   But above all, Windy is a “Boat Builder” and not a manufacturer of boats, a philosophy which characterises their production staff and all those within their distribution network. 


  • Modified deep-v hull with mono-hedron hull construction.
  • Lightweight PVC foam girder stiffening system.
  • PVC foam sandwich construction in hull, superstructure and deck.
  • GRP laminate with advanced multi-axial fibreglass mats.
