Like its sister ship the 52 Xanthos, Windy's 53 Balios achieves a perfect balance of luxurious fit and finish, and sporty performance. The hull design is the same, fast and safe, and the accommodation receives the same obsessive attention to detail and delicate craftsmanship. The difference is in the aft section, where the Balios has a practical dinghy garage covered by a superb sunbed.
Below deck, the genuine quality of the boatbuilder's craft is revealed in high-gloss woodwork in an airy saloon housing a U-shaped sofa, flatscreen TV, and an ultra-modern galley, with stunning downlighting.
The forward stateroom has a kingsize double bed, ensuite bathroom and dressing table. There are also two luxurious guest cabins, one with two single beds, and one with a double which has direct access to a spacious bathroom.
