SW96 “SORCERESS” is the first unit in the new miniseries of high performance cruiser racers launched by Southern Wind in May 2016. She was commissioned by a yachtsman who previously owned an 80′ custom carbon yacht and is a keen racer. This owner was looking for a larger performance yacht to use in both coastal and transoceanic races and for bluewater cruises.

SW96 Sorceress has lightship displacement of 56,7 t for excellent speed in light winds and a manageable rig size.

The owner’s cabin forward and three guest cabins amidships offer privacy for all on board.
