Windy Boats 40 Maestro

We test the most important Windy ever launched

Windy’s new 40ft hardtop cruiser has the lot. It looks every bit as gorgeous as its big sister the 44. It is the biggest, most luxurious 40ft Windy to date and yet it still powers past 40 knots in about the same time it takes most boats to engage drive.

However, just the one porthole and limited stowage might make you turn to the forward cabin. Here there is plentiful stowage and light, although the overhead hatch looks a bit basic in such luxurious surroundings.
