Construction underway on third SW96 superyacht Ammonite

Construction has begun on the third hull in Southern Wind’s SW96 series named Ammonite.

The 31.41 metre superyacht has been described by the yard as “the perfect blend” of the first two hulls in the series, Sorceress and Seatius.

Commissioned by a repeat customer of the South African shipyard, Ammonite is due for a spring 2020 delivery.

The yacht will feature exterior lines designed by Farr Yacht Design and a deck and interior design penned by Nauta Design.

Key features include a lifting keel, twin rudders and a fixed bowsprit, carbon boom and carbon mast.

The corridor between the cockpit and guest area has also been designed to feature “minimal level changes”, resulting in “easy and safe circulation when cruising.”

Unlike Seatius and Sorceress, Ammonite will feature a tender garage big enough to store a 3.95 metre tender while the coach, forward and aft cockpits will be clad in teak.

Ammonite will also feature a raised saloon configuration, which places the engine room beneath the saloon and opens up the spacious TV area aft of the saloon.

Accommodation will be for a total of six guests in three cabins’ a large owner’s suite forward and a double and twin guest cabin. The aft crew area meanwhile includes a double bunk and pullman bunk crew cabin. The area also includes a crew mess, navigation station and spacious galley.
