Vindo 50

I am looking at a Vindo 50 MS and have found some information on sailboatdata.com, but not much else. Is anyone familiar with this boat or Vindos in general? Thank you.

Vindö yachts were built on the island of Orust on the west coast of Sweden. I don't know much other then they are generally of a high quality, as all others from the same area, Malö, Najad and Hallberg-Rassy.

Vindö either got absorbed or disappeared in the '80 ...... I think.

Someone else at have better info.

Ferenc Mate' s book "worlds finest yachts" has a good section on Vindo. Exceptional boat.

Very high quality and beautiful the same. I sailed (long time ago) a 35. Fibreglass hull, mahogany cabintop.
