Windy Boats AS was established in 1966 by Mr Hugo Vold. His father was a fisherman and his family had many anxious moments as storms raged in the Skagerrak Channel. All his fathers boats were called "Vindy", and he brought every one of them safely back to port. Mr 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 seaworthyness and high quality. He called his boats "Windy" in honour of his father's trusty fishing boats. Now (2010) 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 25 to 28 feet in our Windy Oceancraft range.
