~According to Greek mythology Balios was one of two immortal horses born of Zephros that drew Achilles chariot with the speed of the winds during the Trojan War.

The 53 Balios is a new model launch for 2007 and is the sister ship to the 52 Xanthos.

Manufactured in the same spirit of all Windy models, the 53 Balios shares the same hull as the 52 and is fitted with a fully equipped main salon, large master stateroom with an en-suite shower/head and two private enclosed mid cabin sleeping quarters, one complete with an en-suite shower/head.

The main galley and seating area below is nothing short of breathtaking, featuring the highest quality of hand finished woods and a genuine soft leather circular dining area.

The single level cockpit features a deluxe hardtop with a power sliding sunroof which offers excellent 360 degree visibility in any type of sea conditions. Designed for the Mediterranean, the 53 Balios has a large aft sun bed area which is on top of the power garage; ideal for additional storage or for storing a dinghy.

The aft deck is large and open and provides easy foredeck walkway access from either the port or starboard sides. If you prefer, the 53 Balios is available with an optional fully enclosed aft area.
