Wind Wizard is Hull #3 of this series. She is Ex: Robin / Ex: Phoenix / Ex: Yes


The 75' (22.86m) sailing yacht WIND WIZARD is the champion of sailing luxury and gorgeous, southern Florida aesthetics. Built-in 1982, WIND WIZARD wears her history with pride, receiving continual refits since construction to ensure that she is equipped with the latest navigational technologies and luxurious attributes. Her latest refit was in 2016, featuring breathtaking decks newly glassed and awl gripped with moon dust contrasting non-skid, rebuilt windows, custom generator sound shields, and more.

WIND WIZARD's interior is immaculate, cozy, and welcoming - able to accommodate up to six guests in her gorgeous staterooms onboard. Decorated in polished wood paneling, of both teak and holly, the main salon offers guests the opportunity to enjoy the gorgeous ocean views either at the convertible formal dining table for eight or on the plush L-shaped settee in the warmest ambiance.

Her two beautiful staterooms are next aft. Both host twin berths with a bureau between them, locker storage, and their own en-suite bathrooms. WIND WIZARD also features a gorgeous, full-beam master stateroom with a queen-sized bed to starboard and to port a three-quarter bed and settee. She also provides guests of the master cabin with a beautiful desk and master bath.

Focused on maximizing accessibility and intimate travel, WIND WIZARD additionally offers two points of steering: the first lies in the center steering cockpit, the second rests aft of the table in the main salon for guest-crew interactions. Her galley spotlights a beautiful, quaint breakfast nook, wine cooler, ice maker, and grill.

Her exterior is cutter rigged with Hood hydraulic furling and rod rigged by Navtec. Amidst the gorgeous design of the deck, guests can enjoy alfresco seating and dining thanks to the convertible open-air table, and plush sunpads to layout and enjoy the journey at sea. With an array of tenders and toys, WIND WIZARD can never fail to provide the ultimate sailing experience at sea.


Headroom is 77-78" in most areas with a 74" minimum. Raised salon amidships, with owner and guest staterooms aft, and crew quarters, sail locker, galley, and dinette forward of the main saloon. Accommodations for six owners and guests in the three aft staterooms, and for three crew forward in two cabins.

There are two cockpits on deck: a center steering cockpit with centerline helm station aft and a second protected helm forward port, and an aft owner's cockpit with access to the owner's stateroom. Interior soles throughout are teak and holly, joiner work is teak, and the headliner is Ultrasuede.

The wall coverings are in light, neutral colors with teak trim. Natural light and ventilation are excellent from dorades, opening ports, and hatches. 24-volt fans and air conditioning throughout.


From the forepeak aft, a stand-up sail locker/utility room. The washer/dryer unit is installed to starboard, across from the crew head. The crew head has a stall shower, sink, and electric toilet.

The port crew cabin has a double lower berth and a single upper berth. The starboard crew cabin has a large single berth. Both cabins have ample storage space. Aft of the crew cabins is the galley with a crew dinette to starboard seating four.


Next aft is the raised saloon, with six large windows providing plenty of light and great visibility. Two windows port and starboard are opening, providing cross ventilation. An L-shaped settee is to port.

The large varnished hi-lo table can seat eight for dinner, or, when lowered, serves as an attractive cocktail table. Drawer storage in the saloon has been redesigned and reconfigured for custom china and cutlery storage. The entertainment center is aft to port, and equipment is described below. A lounge area is starboard and has a settee and full wet bar with sink, refrigerator, and custom glass and bottle storage. Next aft to starboard is the navigation station.

Aft and down four steps from the saloon are the owner and guest staterooms, and the entrance to the engine room.



The two guest staterooms are next aft. Both have twin berths with a bureau between them, and drawer and hanging locker storage. Each also has an ensuite bathroom with a stall shower, vanity, and electric head.

The port head also has access from the central passageway and serves as the day head.


All the way aft is the full-width master stateroom, with a queen-sized bed to starboard, and to port a three-quarter bed and settee. The forward-facing desk is at the bulkhead. Very good storage space is provided by drawers, shelves, and hanging lockers.

At the aft end of this cabin is the master bath port and starboard, with a passageway leading to the aft cockpit. The port side has a large shower compartment with a seat and a basin, and the starboard side has another basin and an electric toilet. The large cockpit hatch provides excellent ventilation.


The center steering cockpit is large and very comfortable and is accessed from deck both port and starboard. The canvas dodger and bimini provide protection for the entire area. To starboard is a refrigerator/freezer for drinks; to port is the protected helm. The large centerline drop-leaf table can seat up to eight for dining. Settees port and starboard in this cockpit have been widened for more comfortable seating, and also to accommodate outdoor sleeping.

The second steering wheel is aft of the table, so the helmsman can have contact with guests. Recessed into the aft deck, the aft owner's cockpit is very private, and has settees port and starboard, with a filler to allow a double bed for outdoor sleeping or sunbathing.


The galley is full-width with excellent storage and counter space, equipped as follows:




Cutter rigged, with Hood hydraulic furling: in-mast on the main, and roller furling on the headsail. Rod rigging and the hydraulic backstay are by Navtec, and most deck gear is by Harken. In 2009 the mast, boom, spreaders, and spinnaker pole underwent a complete refit.

The entire rig was painted with Awlgrip "Fleet White", all electrical wiring was replaced along with the two aluminum conduits being re-fastened to the mast. The sheaves were turned on a lathe and then hard-coat anodized. The stainless chafe plates on the entrance and exit slots in the mast were replaced. The seven light fixtures were installed new. All of the -48 and -60 Navtec Nitronic 50-rod riggings were replaced including new 150 K-150 mast tangs.

The bronze bottle screws in the turnbuckles were replaced. All of the running rigging was replaced. The 20- Navtec Nitronic 50 rod in the mainsail furling foil was replaced. New doublers in the base of the mast were installed. A new lightning rod was installed. Bronze lightning grounding plates were installed 12" below the waterline midships. Spreader lights illuminate both deck and rig.

The Hood Seafurl hydraulic headstay Furler and Hood Stoway hydraulic in the mast furler were rebuilt. The Harken outhaul car was replaced in 2011.




All deck hardware including pulpits, stanchions, chocks, Dorade guards, cleats, tracks, bimini, and dodger frames were replaced and upgraded to 316 stainless. In 1996 & 2013, the vessel underwent an epoxy coating on the bottom to prevent blisters.

The deck is fiberglass with a Balsa and marine ply core and is finished in moondust Awlgrip (2016). The solid glass rub rail is integrally molded. The main centerboard is fiberglass with a bronze shoe. The trimming centerboard aft is solid bronze.

The spring refit in 2014 included rebuilding the main centerboard tackle. This included the fabrication of a new S/S centerboard trunk cap, pennant, and S/S compression tube. All of the sheaves were removed and serviced. Before going back into the water, the bottom was sandblasted, barrier coated, and painted (2014).
