In October 2008 Windy Boats delivered its first 52 Xanthos with triple Volvo IPS 600 engines, an innovative new configuration of its luxury sports cruiser for the truly performance-minded owner.

Combining a top speed of 41 knots with rapid acceleration (0-30 knots in 13.2 seconds), the new triple installation produced such exceptional results in testing that the company has decided to offer as standard option. Not least because, even with the additional engine, it delivers 20% greater fuel eficiency at a cruising speed of 30 knots than the 52 Xanthos’ best selling 2 x Volvo D12-800 configuration.
