Over the last 20 years, the combined work of Southern Wind, Farr Yacht Design, and Nauta Design have brought to market the design and construction of many semi-custom series of high-performance ocean cruising sailing yachts in the 100’/110 length range.
Continuing this successful business combination, a new Southern Wind 105 continues the series, using a unique assembly process into her entire carbon fiber hull, deck, and bulkheads. Also, her environmentally friendly synthetic teak decks were combined with titanium struts to drastically reduce the boat’s weight to an impressive total of 69,500 kg, allowing it to sail even in lighter wind conditions.
The SORVIND features the RS (Raised Saloon) configuration, which allows guests seated in the saloon to have the surrounding landscape in full view thanks to the expansive hull windows that allow natural light to fill and illuminate the interiors.
The deck design is similar to previous SW105s, although some design details have been modified. The roof geometry features softened angles and contours for a sporty yet elegant appearance. A dodger and bimini with removable side panels and an extended boom awning protect and shade the guest cabin and sunbathing area.
The SW105 series hull shape is characterized by a narrow bow, delicate waterline entry, and streamlined transom shape for a slightly aggressive appearance accentuated by the jet-black hull.
The interior is based on the time-honored design of Southern Wind yachts. The owner’s suite is situated forward of the saloon for maximum privacy, with a VIP stateroom close by and two guest cabins aft of the saloon (the twin beds in the starboard stateroom can be converted to a double bed) to accommodate a total of eight guests.
The salon, located amidship, is a light and bright open space where guests can comfortably relax on the sofas or around the dining table. Immediately leaving the living room is a fully equipped custom bar separating the main salon from the private owner’s area.
The Nordic landscapes of Northern Europe inspire the color palette: long nights combined with bright white snow for a cozy look.
