Southern Wind Shipyard will be participating in this year’s edition of the highly anticipated Monaco Yacht Show, which will take place in Monaco from September the 25th to the 28th. The yard will attend the event with the world premiere of the SW102 n°02 sailing yacht HEVEA, delivered in May 2013, as well as the SW94 n°02 superyacht WINDFALL, delivered in January 2013.
Southern Wind will be pleased to welcome you onboard or at their stand QC08. Furthermore the yard will be hosting the prize giving ceremony on board the SW 102 luxury yacht Hevea on Wednesday 25th at 5.30 p.m to mark the official recognition of Southern Wind Shipyard as the first yard achieving RINA RIG certification**.
SW 94 N°2 Windfall
Superyacht Windfall is a performance cruiser of 28 mt, designed by Reichel Pugh and Nauta Design and delivered in early 2013. Light displacement and aggressive lines combined with modern but functional interiors, make Windfall one of the most representative projects in Southern Wind Shipyard’s semicustom racer-cruiser line.
Luxury yacht Windfall is the sister ship of the already famous SW 94 yacht Kiboko and she is at her first appearance amongst the “jet set” of international yachting. After a maiden voyage of about 7000 nm from Cape Town to Genoa, where they reached up to 26.7 kts, Windfall has shown her performance potential in the beautiful waters of Sardinia, during the Loro Piana Supeyacht Regatta and the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup.
SW 102 DS n °HEVEA
Less than one year after the launch of Almagores II yacht, superyacht Hevea is the hull number 2 of the fortunate model SW 102 DS. Hevea is designed by the same trusted team that has penned many other SW models: Nauta Yacht Design for the general design, deck and interior design and Farr Yacht Design for the naval architecture, sail plan and appendages.
Compared to her sister Almagores II, Hevea yacht benefits from a “performance package” that makes her almost 2 tons lighter, mostly thanks to her High Modulus carbon mast and carbon EC6+ rigging, that guarantee top sailing performance. Moreover, Hevea’s owner chose to customize his yacht’s interior layout, while respecting Southern Wind Shipyard’s “classical roots: Hevea’s master and VIP cabins are afore, her guest cabin are amidships and the crew quarters are astern.
The style of interiors, one of Hevea superyacht‘s distinguishing features, is at the same time essential and modern: cerusé oak together with carbon details create a special atmosphere on board, both by day and by night. Large volumes and lightness are Hevea’s key qualities and make her absolutely unique in the league of 100 foot yachts.
** The RINA Classification Society has developed a new certification system for Sailing Rigs in line with the requirements of the new MCA LY3 commercial code. This unique classification approach consists in a well balanced combination of testing on critical rig items and direct CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) /FEM (Electromotive force) calculations that keep inert loads acting on masts in account.
Southern Wind Shipyard has been selected by RINA as a special partner in this project for the unique opportunity that its yachts offer in terms of data collection. The SWS fleet is the only fleet on the water that routinely undergoes maiden voyages of 7000 NM from Cape Town to Genova. The yard has offered to record the acceleration acting on the masts of their yachts in the many different weather conditions and sea states that they encounter during these maiden voyages. The yard is proud to be partners in this certification system, a system that underlines the extreme care and attention to safety and reliability that have always characterized Southern Wind Shipyard.
