Take a good look at below pictures on our latest SR52 Blackbird build.

SR52 Blackbird, always with the typical WINDY trademarks; top-notch handling, driving performance and good looks!


SPRING IS COMING…

The first sign of spring was when WINDY launched latest SR52 Blackbird build at their yard in Västervik, Sweden. Cold and grey it was this day, but her looks, finish and driving performance could warm every boat enthusiast’s heart. This was also the first build with an Opacmare transformer. Take a good look above.

BOOT 2015 IN DÜSSELDORF

The world’s second largest boat show is over for this time. This year’s BOOT ended a good step above BOOT 2014, the Awards and Nominations both in London and at BOOT reconfirmed the positions of WINDY & DRACO at the very top of European boat brands.

Our new stand-concept worked out well  – everyone worked hard with a friendly attitude and the WINDY 40 Maestro and the WINDY 39 Camira were the two boat models that attracted the most attention. Not to mention the DRACO 27 RS.


WINDY 39 CAMIRA NAMED ”MOTOR BOAT OF THE YEAR 2015”

The Windy 39 Camira has been named 2015 Motor Boat of the Year in the ‘Sports Cruisers up to 45 ft’ category at the 2015 London Boat Show.

The Windy 39 Camira was singled out by the jury for her superb performance, innovation and high standards of build quality. The award was handed over to Windy CEO & President Knut Heiberg-Andersen and Naval Architect Ed Dubois at the Motor Boat Awards Dinner held at London’s prestigious Landmark Hotel on 12 January.

A bigger sister to the ground-breaking Windy 31 Zonda, the 39 Camira took the boating press by storm after her launch at last year’s Boot Düsseldorf. Combining classic sports cruiser styling with superb handling and a top speed of 45 knots she delivers an exceptional on-water experience. One of Europe’s leading powerboat magazines described her Hans Jørgen Johnsen-designed hull as “the best handling 40ft sports cruiser in production.”

The Camira’s exterior styling is by the Dubois studio with an interior by Design Unlimited. The standard two-cabin interior layout offers a choice of galley arrangements, and the cockpit can be specified with either a sunpad or a sports layout. Power comes courtesy of Volvo sterndrives with electronic controls. A tender garage and Windy’s ingenious canopy system, which offers a bimini for sunnier climates or full cockpit protection during inclement weather, complete the package.

The Mediterranean version of the 39 Camira made its debut at Boot Düsseldorf on 17 January, where the sports cruiser is up for a second major award, having been shortlisted for a European Powerboat of the Year Award in the ‘Powerboats up to 45 ft’ category.

Other boats on show on the Windy stand (Hall 5) at Düsseldorf (17-25 January) included the Windy 26 Karma, 29 Coho, 31 Zonda, 40 Maestro and the Draco 27.
