First Southern Wind 105 yacht launched and named Satisfaction

The first hull in the Southern Wind 105 series of 32.27 metre sailing yachts has been launched in Cape Town and named Satisfaction.

Styled inside and out by Nauta Design, her naval architecture comes courtesy of Farr Yacht Design. An unbroken sheerline, running from bow to stern, gives her a sleek and purposeful profile in keeping with her considerable regatta racing potential.

The brief for the Southern Wind 105 series was to combine exceptional sailing performance with outstanding stability and on-board comfort. Sloop-rigged, Satisfaction was built from a carbon fibre hull and superstructure to comply with RINA classification standards. Accommodation is for up to eight guests split between four staterooms, including an owner’s cabin situated in the bow, two twin rooms and a double cabin.

Other key features include a raised coachroof, a 7.32 metre beam and a notable broad aft section, which allows Satisfaction to carry both a 4.2 metre jet tender and a Jet Ski in her superyacht garage. Meanwhile, her telescopic keel means the draught can be reduced from 5.6 metres to 3.65 metres when cruising in shallow waters.

Auxiliary power comes from a single 305hp Cummins QSB 6.7 MCD engine, although Southern Wind has not yet released any estimated performance figures. The yard adds that the mast stepping and sea trials will be completed in time for Satisfaction’s scheduled December delivery date.

Two further hulls in the Southern Wind 105 series are already under construction, with June 2018 and November 2018 launch dates planned.
