This all-new 37 Shamal is the successor to the superb 35 Khamsin and, with this model, Windy and Norwegian designer Espen Øino say they were inspired by Windy sportsboats of the 60s and 70s.
It’s a clean design, more modern and muscular than the Khamsin with an aggressive stance. But with dayboat duties its principal function, those sleek lines disguise a practical, spacious main deck.
It’s an open boat but occupants sit protected in the deep cockpit that can be sheltered by either a new generation canopy system or a bimini top.
The dayboat moniker is a little unfair on the interior, which includes two cabins with double berths and a decent heads compartment with a separate shower cubicle.
With twin sterndrives and nearly 900hp the Windy Shamal 37 is likely to be engaging to drive with a top speed close to 45 knots. We will test one in the spring.
