The Windy SR52 Blackbird is the flagship superyacht tender and chase boat from Windy Scandinavia, who are known for building some of the finest quality and most capable performance yachts on the market.
Windy launched their special projects division with the Windy SR52 Blackbird, which was developed in collaboration with Dubois Naval Architects and legendary Norwegian Naval Architect Hans Jørgen Johnsen. The result was one of the most capable and versatile chase boats on the market, boasting top speeds in excess of 42kts and a cruising range of circa 480nm. She is a true driver’s yacht and lots of fun on the water, whilst reliably comfortable for guests.
The iconic Blackbird takes her sleek and aggressive lines from the 66m Dubois sloop – AGLAIA with a robust fender list and expansive walk around deck layout. There is a notable lazarette forward for storage of equipment and a custom anchor system, which seamlessly folds away.
The “deck boat” layout of the yacht includes a spacious cockpit with table, aft sun pad and plenty of storage for toys and chilled provisions. The well-appointed wet-bar has everything one could need to days at anchor.
The accommodation is limited, but ideal for occasional weekends away or crew. The layout includes a double cabin forward with converting v-berth and separate shower compartment.
The Blackbird is powered by Volvo Penta IPS system, which offers improvements in manoeuvrability, acceleration, vibration and economy. She can be easily managed shorthanded and helmed precisely in the marina or when manoeuvring in close quarters to the mother ship.
The Volvo IPS system also allows for the Volvo Dynamic Positioning system to be specified, which automatically holds the yachts position and heading – ideal when standing off for long periods.
The Windy SR52-127 is the latest example of the SR52 Blackbird to complete production and is ready for delivery with a comprehensive specification and full new boat warranties. Her key features include full teak, fully lacquered hull and deck, additional cold storage, ice maker and sound system upgrade. She is also fitted with air con, 7kw generator in a dedicated “tech room”, bow rider seat forwards and additional chart plotter.
She is powered with the 2 x Volvo IPS 800 engines, complemented with the Humphree interceptors. The interceptors automatically control the yachts, trim, list, heel angle in the corners. The Volvo IPS 800 is an in-line 6-cylinder D11 common rail diesel with twin entry turbo and super charger, which deliver incredibly low RPM response.
