New Model: Windy 45 Chinook

Involving an investment in design, tooling and customer research, the new 45 Chinook is a natural development of the 44 launched in 2008, and boasts an enlarged hardtop that offers more shelter to the cockpit and main deck seating areas.  It also features a larger opening sunroof, transforming the three cabin sports cruiser at the touch of a button from an enclosed into a more open-cockpit layout. The new model is also some one foot longer than its predecessor, thanks to an extended swimming platform. Windy's designers where inspired by the 40 Maestro for this new model who also took the opportunity to redesign and enlarge the topsides windows to match the right-angles of the new Windy look. Also in common with the Maestro, the 45 Chinook has a fresh new interior design by Peder Eidsgaard, who created a modern warmth hardwood finish. The new 45 retains the Chinook's excellent, family-friendly three double cabins with owners room to fore layout, with a lower saloon and galley. Two engine options and a superb Hans-Jorgen Johnsen hull complete an unbeatable cruising package.
