First photos of Southern Wind new launch Seawave under sail

First photos of Southern Wind new launch Seawave under sail

Southern Wind Shipyard has shared the first photos of its new launch, the 31.78 metre SW102 Seawave, under sail. The new sailing photos of Seawave are set against the stunning backdrop of Cape Town, South Africa, where she was launched at the end of June.

In the photos, sailing yacht Seawave passes by the city’s iconic coastline with Table Mountain in the background and shows off her elegant lines, penned Nauta Yacht Design.

Seawave is the fourth hull in the successful Southern Wind 102 semi-custom series. She is the second hull in the series to have the Raised Saloon configuration, which offers an open saloon with a light pouring in down below. The first two Southern Wind 102s ordered were Deck Saloon configurations.

Nauta Yacht Design created the concept and interiors of this series, in addition to the exterior styling, while Farr Yacht Design is responsible for the naval architecture. The interior features horizontal open grain teak and ivory linens to give it a warm, classic motif.

Seawave follows in the wake of SW102 hull No 3, Farfalla, which recently received the World Superyacht Award for Quality & Value. Like Farfalla, Seawave features a master stateroom forward, leaving the aft area for crew accommodations and galley. Unlike her sister, Seawave forgoes the walk-in closet off the master and instead has an open "studio" area that separates the saloon from the master accommodations forward

Desiring an even more airy and open saloon than Farfalla, and to have a dedicated area to conduct business on board, the owner of of Seawave stipulated this studio area.

“Placed immediately after the living area, the studio creates a very smooth passage from the saloon to the owner’s private quarter and it is composed of a small sofa and a desk where a computer and printer can be installed,” said Southern Wind.

Seawave has a main sail area of 292 sqm, a carbon fibre mast and boom and a draught of four metres. She is RINA Charter Class certified.

Seawave will now make her way to the Mediterranean and make her public debuts at the Cannes and Monaco boat shows this September.
