“Windy Boats www.windy.no and Hans Jørgen Johnsen have joined forces with world renowned yacht designer Ed Dubois in Dubois Naval Architects to produce a stunning new 16.10 metre Super Tender:
– The “Windy Dubois SR 52 Blackbird”.
Combining the exceptional design flair of Dubois with the superb build-quality, production capability and performance of the Windy brand, the elegant yet uncompromising SR 52 is guaranteed to turn heads as it delivers guests ashore in unprecedented style, speed and comfort.
Sporting triple IPS 600 Volvo Penta diesel engines, the SR 52 shall boast a top speed of 46 knots, and cruising speed of 40 knots. It is also told to deliver effortless maneuverability and stability at low speeds, thanks to Volvo’s joystick control.
With a 4.5m beam, the cockpit offers generous seating including three separate racing chairs at the helm and three standing sports chairs with bimini shade.
The open, walk-around teak deck also features a raised foredeck, and additional seating, sun lounger and hydraulic bathing ladder aft – perfect for race spectating, swimming or picnicking at anchorage. A head with shower is located below decks, along with a double berth.
One of the new generation of leaner, greener Windy models, the SR 52 employs vacuum injected moulding to produce a lighter, more fuel-efficient hull with a range of 450-480 miles. The sleek lines and rakish sheer of the SR 52’s distinctive hull will deliver an exhilarating but stable and dry ride”.
It is a clear tendency that end users want sustainable materials and green solutions. Windy boats have decided to make Kebony one of their decking options and have installed it on several models.
