In memoriam: ED DUBOIS (1952-2016)

On March 24th 2016, we received the devastating news that our close business partner and personal friend , Ed Dubois (64), had passed away.
I met Ed Dubois for the first time in 2006 when WINDY was in the process of engaging a new designer for our new generation of powerboats.
I loved his styling and elegant design language as much as his visions and work ethics.
By coincident we were asked to build the now famous T52 tender to M/Y AGLAIA and this project became the beginning of a new area for WINDY within the yacht industry.
The WINDY SR52 Blackbird is today an icon admired by everybody in the marine industry; – concept – styling – quality of build – performance and strength. A true thoroughbred.

DUBOIS and WINDY connected extremely well and we have since then launched the price winning WINDY 39 Camira – the price winning DRACO 27RS and the DRACO 22RS.

WINDY and Ed had so much unfinished work, but life is fragile and unpredictable.
Our good friend Ed Dubois contributed directly to the changes WINDY made in 2012 and the SR52 opened door to new markets for us.

Ed will be remembered as a true gentleman with extraordinary visions and skills for modern yacht & boat design.
Our thoughts goes to his family and bereaved.

WINDY would like to thank our visitors, clients, and distributors for all efforts and enthusiasm during the full BOOT 2016.

It was without no doubt the best show in years for WINDY, with brand new models like Windy 46 Chinook and Draco 22RS attracting a lot of attention.
