Southern Wind’s new superyacht Kiboko, the first SW 94 was launched in Cape Town, on October 31st, 2010.
Reichel Pugh Yacht Design was responsible for sailing yacht Kiboko’s Naval Architecture (hull lines, sail plan and appendages design) and the general concept, interior design and exterior styling of the S/Y Kiboko was designed by Nauta Design.
Built as a cruiser / racer, the new SW 94 Kiboko is the sportiest and most aggressive yacht launched by the Southern Wind Shipyard to date. She also features a luxurious and bright interior and clean deck spaces making sailing yacht Kiboko ideal for chartering or for private use as well as racing.
Southern Wind sailing yacht Kiboko was built using advanced composite sandwich construction, renowned for lightness and stiffness, she is RINA classed with structural engineering by High Modulus.
Following the success achieved with the SW 78 footer mini-series, Southern Wind decided to implement its production with another and yet faster cruiser-racer: the Southern Wind 94 (SW 94).
The great racing results gained by the 78 footers were good reasons to once again appoint Reichel Pugh Design and Nauta Design to the new challenging project, the Southern Wind 94 (SW 94). (Sailing yacht WHISPER won the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2009 in the Mini Maxi R/C class and finished in the prestigious Rolex Fastnet Regatta 5th overall on IRC class out of almost 300 boats, S/Y ALLSMOKE was first in the Mini Maxi IRC class in Maxi Rolex Cup 2007, and Sail yacht SOUTHERN STAR won the Boat International Superyacht Regatta in 2008 in the cruising division).
