Project: Windy Twenty Two

The Windy Twenty Two concept project is designed by the Dubois studio to emphasize the outdoors, with lots of cockpit seating, open deck spaces, fold–down bulwarks aft, a drop-down transom for swimmers, and extra seating and sunbathing space on the fore-deck.  The hull is of a deep Vee mono-hedron construction for good offshore performance and the fixtures and fittings on the boat are all of superior quality.  Sliding cockpit doors and a hardtop with a large opening sunroof shelter a small deck saloon, from which a curved companionway leads down into a private lower saloon which has skylights, a large TV and daybed, and a small dinette.  There is also a galley aft alongside a twin-berth cabin, and a spacious VIP suite forward. The interior is by the British studio Design Unlimited. With three powerful engine options available, and a choice of jet drives, surface drive or Volvo IPS pod drives, the Twenty Two promises high performance, while a 24-degree deep vee hull by Hans Jørgen Johnsen guarantees the exemplary handling and sea keeping for which Windy is renowned.
