New Model: Windy 29 Coho

Presented in the early part of 2013, the new Windy 29 Coho is a natural evolution and replacement of the long standing 28 Ghibli model, and incorporates the Norwegian builder latest design stints.  Designer Hans-Jorgen Johnsen was quick to put Windy's freshest looks as shown in other previous latest models as the 31 Zonda, or 26 Kharma; case in point is the similar outside lines, windshield profile, and electric canopy function.  Still the new 29 Coho adds new stuff of its own as the three view hull windows in the cabin, which add a yacht feature to the sports aggressive lines of the outside.  The 29 Coho is a sports boat still it offers adequate accommodation for a couple down below for a short trip or a weekend cruise thanks to a double berth, separate shower head, and small galley.  Power is a Volvo a single engine from 260 up to 370hp units.  Twin power options should be available at a later stage.
