Southern Wind sailing yacht Zefiro for sale
by Malcolm Maclean
The 30.2 metre sailing yacht Zefiro has been listed for sale by Marc Haendle at Ocean Independence.
Built in GRP by South African yard Southern Wind to a design by Farr Yacht Design with styling and interiors by Nauta Design, Zefiro was delivered in 2009 as a high performance cruising sloop. She went on to establish an enviable record on the racing and regatta circuit, including a stunning win at the 2013 New Zealand Millennium Cup.
Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, double and twins to port and starboard, all with entertainment centres, flatscreen television sets and en-suite shower facilities. There is also accommodation for four crew in two cabins aboard this yacht for sale.
The saloon offers comfortable seating, a dining area and an entertainment centre featuring a large flatscreen television set and a Bose stereo surround sound system, while on deck is a covered dining/lounging area with cushions, teak lounge seats and a table for the foredeck.
Zefiro was built to a very high specification, including a High Modulus carbon mast and carbon rigging, 10 Harken winches and a full wardrobe of Doyle sails. Under power, a 305hp Cummins diesel engine gives her a maximum range of 2,000 nautical miles at eight knots.
Available to view at the upcoming Palma boat show, Zefiro is asking €4,950,000 with VAT paid.
