The new Windy Zonda 31 takes on the Pagani Zonda R in the ultimate show down race

Renowned Scandinavian boatbuilder, Windy Boats, is going back to the future in 2011 with the all-new 31 Zonda, a stunning fast weekender which harks back to the glory days of the deep-vee hull.

Windy 31 Zonda“I really think it’s one of the most beautiful boats Hans Jørgen Johnsen has ever designed for us,” comments Windy CEO Knut Heiberg-Andersen. “The Zonda is a low-profile weekender concept with no hardtop, no radar arch – just a great hull and plenty of horsepower. She’s sleek, functional and sexy.”

Focused on a deep, secure cockpit and performance-oriented helm position, the Zonda’s simple and elegant accommodation is designed around the needs of an overnighting couple. There is a single sleeping cabin down below, with a big double bed, a generous shower compartment and a small galley.

The cockpit seating is sheltered by a canopy on a folding stainless steel frame which is designed to be as effortless as possible to put up, and unobtrusive when stowed. The 24 degree, deep-vee hull can be powered by single or twin sterndrive installations from Volvo, up to a maximum of 440hp.

Commenting on the choice of name, Heiberg-Andersen says, “like all our boats it’s named after a wind – the warm, dry viente zonda which blows down from the Andes in Argentina. But if this is a boat that puts owners in mind of a certain rare and desirable sports car, then that’s hardly surprising.”
