New Genoa made with highest quality materials just installed by Mack Sails out of Stuart, Florida.

This gorgeous yacht has been fully refit, restored and loved with no expense spared.

From a distance and close up, WINDBORNE is spectacular and an attention getter. The impeccable wood and brightwork finish shows true craftsmanship that anyone would appreciate.  The pictures and video tells the story. 

The beautiful helm and wheel invite you to navigate WINDBORNE to faraway places. The decks are wide and easy to negotiate.

The interior is stunning and very inviting. The salon is wide and comfortable for entertaining friends or family with a galley that a pro chef would appreciate.

The forward salon is an entertainment center with a comfortable couch, large flatscreen TV, extra fridge. This salon is surrounded in beautiful carved woodwork.

Forward is another stateroom and large head. There is also very large storage area and workshop.

The master stateroom is amazing with it's large king size berth with the classic windows in the stern.

Think of this yacht as a work of art that is a very capable, safe blue water cruiser.
