Windy Scandinavia AB & Berthon International

Windy Scandinavia & Berthon International

Windy Scandinavia AB and Berthon have terminated their longstanding contract with immediate effect. Berthon will no longer distribute Windy boats in the UK and France. 

This mutual decision was agreed because the business models of the two successful businesses have diverged and as such the dealer arrangement is no longer a good fit for either party.

Trevor Fenlon CEO Windy Scandinavia said:

‘Windy wishes Berthon success for the future.  In the interim period any new WINDY model enquiries for the UK and French Markets should be directed to the WINDY offices in Sweden, contact details on our website www.windyboats.com with email address contact@windyboats.com

Sue Grant MD Berthon Sales Group commented:

‘Berthon will continue to support our clients who are Windy owners providing a proactive Windy brokerage service as well as dealing with any aftersales care for Windy Boats that we have sold or in build.  Berthon Boat Company will remain a Windy service centre in the UK.  We are sad to be parting from Windy after 27 years, and wish them much success.  We are excited about the expansion of the Berthon Sales Group now operating in 5 countries, selling high quality new yachts and brokerage yachts internationally.’
