Windy 24 (sim to Coronet 24). Twin Volvo Penta 130’s on 280 drives. Project for sale

Scandinavian built quality cabin cruiser, very similar but probably more spacious than the Scandinavian Coronet 24 Cab cruisers which are more common in the UK. Pretty and now.a classic boat across Europe. Well designed and built with an advanced for her time,  deep shape with turn down chines for soft dry ride, strength and good seakeeping. She is on production trailer now, the framework of the trailer seems fine but think it needs new bearings and tyres.  This trailer is not included but would consider selling the boat with the trailer if required providing we can agree price. Will get new pics including her on the trailer, pics shown are year old now. She is located on farm near Bideford, North Devon.
She has nice spacious, light layout in the main cab.  There is separate loo compartment with loo and sink. Also sink and designed for cooker in cockpit under fly hood or wheel house. She had fly hood and full standing height hood till recently as seen in pics but these were finished off by strong winds. Hoops and bits remain which might help to make another hood.
She has been left for many year think. bought her for my own but am finding it hard to make the time sort her at the moment. Top deck is in good structural order but has been painted poorly meaning now it is an awfull peeling mess. Hull is good and still has the original gel which does polish up nicely. Windows in good nick, they seem to be glass so are not crazed as is typical of older Perspex.
She also came with spare engines in bits and lots of parts. Her fitted engines are mess and will need rebuilding or she needs the engine/s inboard or outboard to replace to suit the intended use. Outdrives are there, one suspect is siezed, the other seems ok but both will need some work and possibly an overhaul. Steering, dash, throttles all there. Fuel and water tank there but not sure on condition, likely to be aluminium. Electrics there but again, condition not known.
All in all, clearly Project needing major overhaul/refit/replace but she is broadly as original. rare early Windy which is more suited to holidays and pastimes than modern designs as she has light cab with good all round vis inside and straight forward cockpit space good for fishing, cruising and other activities with option of full cover and/or wheel house.
