The Windy SLR 60 has been designed to be the ultimate superyacht chaseboat for long distance excursions. However, it will also serve as a very nimble sports boat for diving and fishing, as well as support shoreside exploration. This contemporary and elegant design is fitted with a large swim platform aft of the luxurious guest area and bar, making it a very attractive vessel for socialising and enjoying relaxing times on the water.
The first vessel has been commissioned by an experienced superyacht owner and client of MMYD, and has been designed to meet their stringent requirements. The SLR 60 features detailed design accents that mirror those of her superyacht mothership, MM597 - currently in build at Royal Huisman. Studio Liaigre, interior architect of MM597, was entrusted to realise the interior design of the SLR 60.
Following delivery of this first SLR 60, Windy Scandinavia AB will put the design into production at the Windy yard in Sweden, making it the largest Windy available and establishing the 60-footer as the company’s flagship.
A rigorous testing procedure to assess the boat’s performance in varying sea states has been conducted. The sea trials confirmed that the SLR 60 is extremely capable in all conditions, with a generous flare to the bow and multiple chines on the hull keeping the boat as dry as possible.
As you would expect of a high-performance chaseboat from Windy, the SLR 60 will be able to traverse unprotected and open passages of water with ease, with a range of 850 nautical miles at 25 knots. The full-height windscreen provides protection at high speed for those in the forward-facing seats and an increased fuel capacity equips this luxury tender with an exceptionally long range and a top speed of 44 knots. Exhilarating to drive, this incredibly responsive vessel offers impressive acceleration and handling at speed. There’s also a gyro-stabiliser to enhance comfort when at anchor.
