Question Need help Identifying this Gulet-Style Vessel

Looks kinda like a Turkish Double-Masted Gulet style ship.
Found in Miami Florida, called 'Windborne.'

Would love to find any more information on this beauty. Make, model, anything!

That's one of the variants of the Formosa 51 - the "Captain Ron" boat.

Re: Need help Identifying this Gulet-Style Vessel

Definitely not a Greek boat, nor a "Goelette" which means schooner. I agree with SloopJonB, a variant of the Taiwanese built Formosas. Pretty much a motor sailor. Many had problems with the teak; at the peak of production, they weren't able to find enough aged teak to keep up with production. Some had amazingly beautiful interiors, which made up for their lack of sailing performance.

There's one for sale in Comox right now. Aluminium spars and no teak deck - both big, expensive upgrades. Looks good from the pics. Asking $185K.

Re: Need help Identifying this Gulet-Style Vessel

Leave a note at the marina office and/or on the boat with your contact info so that the owner, if so inclined, may get in touch with you?

Speaking of "Captain Ron": Wanderer, 2nd boat down
