Achieving World-Class Results with Awlcraft SE

Tuesday, January 22, 2019


Since 1966, Norwegian boat builders Windy Boats have been a leading name in sports cruisers and yachts, from the award-winning W31 Zonda to the iconic SR52 Blackbird. With a shared dedication to performance and aesthetics Awlgrip and Windy make for natural partners, combining world-class craftsmanship with the proven quality and outstanding appearance of Awlgrip coatings.


Our signature cruisers are classically beautiful, technically advanced and a joy to drive

Fredrik Delic, Sales & Marketing Manager at Windy

“Drawing on five decades of boat building experience and centuries of Scandinavian seafaring heritage, all our boats bear the hallmark of quality without compromise.” 

“Awlgrip is one of the best boat paints on the market, with excellent characteristics compared to many other brands. The colors that we are most identified with are metallic, which we use to achieve a sleek and elegant look.” The SR52 Blackbird is a prime example of how well Awlgrip and Windy complement one another, pictured below outside Cannes in Côte d'Azur. The boat is lacquered with Awlcraft SE in Crystal Silver Metallic and Super Jet Black, with a clearcoat of Awlcraft 2000 F3029. 


“But it’s not just the performance and appearance of the paint,” Fredrik continued, “being in close contact with Awlgrip and AkzoNobel means that we are certain to fulfil our regulatory obligations for each country we operate in. Our customers expect the very best, not only in terms of craftsmanship and performance, but in business conduct and ethics as well.” 

“It’s in our culture and our DNA to develop good relationships with competitors and neighbors. We are admired throughout the boating industry and many of our fiercest competitors visit us at boat shows to see our latest work. Following the success of the SR52, which has become a benchmark for quality in the industry, we have been developing a full SR category. We will be launching the SR43 in January 2019, as a ‘little sister’ model to the larger SR52.” 

Windy Boats has crafted over 10,000 boats since the company was founded, and their creations will continue to dazzle customers and competitors alike, just as Awlgrip will continue to supply unrivalled coatings such as Awlcraft SE to finest boats in the industry.
