THE WINDY SR52 BLACKBIRD DELIVERS AN EXPERIENCE WITH EVERY RIDE

If the definition of a superyacht starts with being the pinnacle of creativity and craftsmanship, then it makes sense that it should have a tender boat to match. Enter the Windy SR52 Blackbird, an ultra-adaptable pleasure-boat delivering best-in-class performance and the ultimate in refined style.

The SR52 concept has been infused into the Windy brand which for over 50 years culminates half a century’s worth of Scandinavian design excellence into this phenomenal superyacht tender. With it follows a garnering of multiple industry accolades in the process.

When first appearing, it was stunning crowds at the Cannes Yachting Festival, and the Windy SR52 Chase Boat set the benchmark for luxury yacht tenders thanks to its head-turning silhouette and fierce 46-knot speeds. It is a boat built for the James Bond in us all; effortlessly cool and a perennial classic that emphasizes form as much as sensational handling no-matter the conditions.

TIMELESS DESIGN

The cockpit with its three pilot seats nestled at a helm boasts the latest high-tech instrumentation and is truly impressing. However – it is the commitment to small details whether it is the streamlined detailing for enhanced aerodynamics, or the fully-hydraulic bathing ladder in the aft this shows the true dedication to pure enjoyment and excellent finishing. Add to that in-built fishing racks or the powerful deck speakers. If you’ve ever wondered if Windy emphasizes pleasure above all - the SR52 Blackbird is the proof. In fact, at just a glance, you realize that this is a boat for those who believe true power whispers rather than shouts, and prefers to reveal itself in performance instead of relying entirely on presentation.

 

UNCOMPROMISING POWER

The SR52 streamlined look makes a commanding first impression, but the throttle's first thrust is when it truly awes. Surging with IPS propulsion while backed by advanced interceptors you are ensured a smooth experience maintaining total balance at top speeds, even when navigating tight turns.

When it comes to the Windy SR52 there is always more than meets the eye with its uncompromisingly understated exterior hiding a commanding Triple IPS 650 or Twin IPS 800 Volvo Penta Diesel Engines beneath the surface. At this point, you might expect a deafening engine noise to match but the Windy SR52 defies expectations once again, keeping the decibels low and allowing pleasant conversation to continue even while moving at high speed to your destination. If you have not already noticed, the Windy SR52 doesn’t beg for attention, it beguiles

WHEN THE GREATEST DESIGNERS COME TOGETHER

Working with the world’s greatest designers and craftsmen Windy is able to draw on their passion and skill. This collaboration has led Windy to build a name and a product that is envied by many. The commission of the Windy SR52 Blackbird provided the first opportunity for Windy to partner with designers and naval architects external to the company.

"Windy is a strong international brand and Malcolm McKeon Yacht Design are proud to be associated with them.” The claim comes from non-other than Malcom McKeon, who have worked with Windy to create the quality and innovation that has come to be expected from the brand name.

The SR52 also speaks volumes without saying a word thanks to Ed Dubois. Those already in-the-know will instantly recognize the iconic yacht designer’s architectural touch.

This marvel is the embodiment of Dubois’ obsession with sleek engineering. From the wood-lined interior lobby through to the convertible single-to-double bed berth, complete with hidden storage, the SR52 Blackbird offers a remarkable sense of space that outclasses all.

The hull designed by Hans-Jørgen Johnsen delivers superlative performance and matchless seakeeping as well. The SR52 is a masterpiece result influenced by a number of leading innovators within design.

INSPIRED BY TRADITION

The unruffled stability of the SR52 Blackbird may seem far from Windy founder Hugo Vold’s humble beginnings on the stormy shores of Skagerrak. However, it is precisely these roots that inspired the genius behind the craftsmanship of this groundbreaking Chase Boat. The SR52 leads the industry not only because it aims to be the fastest or the most beautiful superyacht tender on the market, but because it delivers the luxury of choice, from breathtaking weekend cruises to exhilarating joy rides, through to stable tenders. Vold’s legacy lives on in Windy’s obsession with sturdiness, peerless quality and deep respect for the sea.
