While she launched in March and is currently en route to the Med for her owner’s first season onboard, Sørvind sailing in Cape Town is a sight to see. Southern Wind Shipyard captures this bluewater cruiser’s spirit gracefully.
The sailing superyacht is the fifth delivery in Southern Wind Shipyard’s SW105 series. Therefore, this means styling by Nauta Design and naval architecture by Farr Yacht Design. A priority is on performance, since the owner had a pretty specific vision. In fact, he wanted “a high-performance bluewater yacht for fast and comfortable sailing that embodies a Nordic Cool spirit.” When he takes Sørvind sailing, the owner should expect especially good performance in lighter winds.
The same is true for charter guests, too. In fact, when the yacht reaches the Med, she’ll begin offering select dates for charter. Ultimately, though, regardless of who’s aboard in the coming months, they will surely spent plenty of time outside on deck. The large cockpit welcomes guests with seating and tables, ideal for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners on the hook, as well as apertivo time. Sunpads are just aft of the cockpit. More sunning space sits forward, which can double as an early-morning yoga studio or quiet hideaway from the rest of the crowd onboard.
Whoever takes Sørvind sailing will further have fun watertoys to take out for thrills. These include sea kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, and windsurfers. Better yet, adventurous spirits can have a blast on land, thanks to road bikes that will sit alongside the watertoys in in the tender garage.
You can get a closer look at Sørvind when she makes her global debut at the Monaco Yacht Show in September.
