The Dutch-built Winner range of performance cruising yachts has an excellent pedigree, being created by Cees van Tongeren of the renowned Van de Stadt Design team. They are built by hand in Enkhuizen, on the shore of the Ijsselmeer, by skilled craftsmen using the very latest GRP construction technology.

The design and performance of a Winner yacht makes them as popular for as racing as they are for cruising.  As the builder states, every new winner has:  

  • Hulls that are built with high quality isophthalic resins for effective protection against osmosis, a steel reinforcing grid around the keel area and foam-filled floor beams for maximum stiffness
  • Casing construction with laminated deck-hull connection providing a lifelong dense and rigid hull
  • Structural bulkheads that are laminated and bonded to the hull and deck for maximum integrity
  • Topsides made from a high-density foam sandwich to reduce overall weight, provide insulation, and will not absorb water in the event of leakage will not soften
  • Keel foundations that are always identical so that the keel can be changed if the sailing ambition or the area changes
  • In the area of ??fittings, metal plates are used to absorb the forces and for easy replacement
  • Powerful sailing plans that enable safe and fast sailing
  • Dyneema core running gear and generously dimensioned deck fittings exclusively from premium manufacturers for easy handling
  • A standard forefoot roller system
  • Timelessly elegant interiors in high-quality boat construction quality and genuine veneers
  • A practical and seaworthy interior layout for a comfortable life on board
  • Comfortable, high-quality upholstery and long bunks for a restful sleep

The Winner 8 is a true performance cruiser with all the advantages above: design category B and plenty of sailing ability for optimum sailing fun and safety due to a high ballast content. The Performance edition features the deeper T-keel, Dyform rigging and a retractable bowsprit with associated deck gear. Comfort is guaranteed with no less than five comfortable sleeping spaces, a modular interior design and a well thought-out cockpit. Available in two keel variants,”Mirage” has the longer 1.5m bulb keel and attached rudder system. The rig is lightweight and easy to trim. 

The weight and dimensions of the Winner 8 makes her ideal for trailer transport behind a large car, thereby giving the freedom to discover new cruising areas. A mast laying device can also be purchased from the builder if required. 

Built in 2015 and commissioned in May 2016, “Mirage” comes with her hull having been copper-coated at the factory during build; tiller steering; twin fibreglass rudders; a Yanmar 14HP sail-drive inboard diesel engine that has been annually serviced at approximately 50 hour intervals (total hours 185.2); Holding Tank; Shore Power; two BatteriesSolar Power; and Calorifier.  With Selden Spars, the 2015 Mainsail and Genoa are made by Hagoort and there is a 2002 customised Cruising Chute made by Suffolk Sails.

She has a teak veneered ply interior with grey anthracite upholstery; 6’ headroom; Heating with two outlets; 2 double berths in 2 cabins; separate Heads with Jabsco Sea Toilet (there is a hot/cold deck shower); Galley with 2 burner cooker, portable compressor fridge/freezer and sink.
