• About Windy



    Windy Boats AS is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Periscopus AS, Oslo, Norway - a privately owned holding company with interests which include publishing, media, hotels and property. The renowned WINDY boats are built at our modern and well equipped production facilities at Skarpnes, just outside Arendal on the southern coast of Norway. The Company employs 160 people producing models ranging from 25 to 58 feet in our WINDY range; and from 26 to 28 feet in our Windy Oceancraft range.

    Maritime Tradition

    All our models are hand-built by skilled craftsmen. The fine woodwork and exclusive textiles are important distinguishing features of a Windy in just the same way as the modern technology involved in the construction materials, and the control and propulsion systems. Pride in craftsmanship is something that has been handed down through centuries of Norwegian boat building. Windy boats are built in an area which is at the very heart of the Norwegian boat building tradition, in Arendal on the south coast of Norway. It was in this same town that the first wooden pleasure boats were built for the country's prosperous sailing-ship masters and owners. In these waters, kings and princes competed in yacht races in their beautiful metre boats. This is where fibreglass boats first appeared in 1953. All of this tradition is embodied in a Windy.

    The Founder

    Windy Boats AS 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. All his father's boats were called 'Vindy', and he brought every one of them safely back to port. Hugo Vold, with his deep respect for the sea and the weather, became a boat builder who wanted his vessels to be known for their seaworthiness and high quality. He called his boats 'Windy' in honour of his father's trusty fishing boats.

    Development

    When Windy Boats AS was established in 1966, a fine leisure boat was created first and foremost thanks to the skilled craftsmanship that had been handed down through the generations. It is still the case today that the craftsman has the greatest influence on the finished product, however, dialogue with the market inspires our creativity in different directions, involving new ideas and an alternative way of thinking. During this development process, our architects are assisted by extremely precise IT tools. Simulation software enables us to optimise the characteristics on which we intend to focus in a new Windy. Three-dimensional imaging simplifies the choices we have to make during the process that leads to the final product.
