Windy Boats is a wholly owned subsidiary of Periscopus, a privately owned holding company with interests which include publishing, media, hotels and property. Windy boats was built in Skarpnes, just outside Arendal on the southern coast of Norway. The renowned WINDY boats are built at our modern and well equipped production facilities in Västervik at the east coast of Sweden and in Ostroda, Poland. We engage about 100 skilled people producing models ranging from 26 to 53 feet in our WINDY range; and from 20 to 26 feet in our DRACO range.

WINDY was established in 1966 by Hugo Vold. His father was a fisherman, and his family had many anxious moments as storms raged in the Skagerrak Channel. Today WINDY is also working closely with the most recognized and awarded yacht designers and naval architects in the world.

In addition to the more classical "white" range of boats WINDY have also delivered "customized" production boats as tenders to the yacht industry, but only when we were contracted to develop, build and deliver the WINDY Dubois SR52 Blackbird, did we realize how perfect our skills and state of mind matched the demands of Yacht Owners. With the success of our SR 52 Blackbird, we have established a separate Business Unit; - WINDY Yacht Projects.

It has been incredibly encouraging how the yacht industry has embraced our new presence in this arena. Our objective is to offer the unique WINDY Qualities to the yachting industry in cooperation with some of the very best yacht designers and naval architects in the world. Custom tenders, tender limousines, chase boats in sizes from 7 meters to 24 meters can efficiently and competitively be developed and built at our first class production facilities in Västervik, Sweden.

Over the years Windy Boats have also developed a well deserved reputation for offering class leading handling, and an ability to cope with even the most challenging weather conditions. This ability sets Windy aside from the competition, and gives our owners the confidence to use their boats more often, venture further afield and get the most from their boating experience.
