Southern Wind Presents 39 Metre Sailing Yacht Flagship SW120

South African sailing yacht yard Southern Wind has revealed its new 39.39 metre flagship sailing yacht model named the SW120.

Complete with a Gran Turismo version, the semi-custom sailing yacht has been designed by Nauta Yacht Design and Farr Yacht Design in collaboration with Southern Wind. Constructed in carbon composite sandwich, the SW120 will have a “lightweight but stiff” construction.

Owners can opt for one of three different deck configurations – raised saloon, deck saloon and the new Gran Turismo version.

The SW120GT was inspired by the fourth SW105 yacht currently under construction and will include a carbon fibre coachroof with an inbuilt skylight above the saloon.

The semi-custom multipurpose design can be altered to each individual owner’s desires while offering “all the benefits of series build,” the yard said. Owners can also opt for a fixed or telescopic keel.

Vice president of Farr Yacht Design Jim Schmicker explained: “The Southern Wind 120 is propelled to impressive light wind performance by the combination of a lifting keel, with a draft range of 3.8 to 6m, and a very manageable amount of sail area.”

While owners traditionally opt for the four-cabin arrangement with the master cabin forward and crew aft, the interior provides a number of arrangements for the owners to choose from. This includes the option to have a full beam master cabin aft with access to the stern cockpit.

Nauta Design’s Massimo Gino explained: “In each of these configurations, the central cockpit is the living heart of the yacht, fitted with convertible tables for comfortable al fresco dining, well separated from the manoeuvring area by large sunbeds making for a welcoming open-air lounging area.”
