In recent years, the superyacht market has been characterized by growing interest in large high performance yachts featuring a higher level of customization, a demand that cannot not be overlooked by Southern Wind Shipyard.

Though specialized in the semicustom production, Southern Wind occasionally consider the construction of  custom yachts, upon a careful evaluation of a specific project proposed by the owner and his naval architect.

SW-RP 90

A custom yacht penned by Reichel/Pugh, this 90 footer is a modern, high performance blue water racer cruiser that combines the comforts of a modern superyacht with exceptional sailing performance for both the Mediterranean and the Caribbean regatta circuits.
The hull and appendages design are the result of multiple performance studies on yachts of this size. The RP90 features a lifting keel that varies from a 5.8m draft down for excellent stability and sail carrying capability considering the lightship displacement of 47,7 tons, to 3,8m up for shallow harbour entry. The ergonomic deck layout is designed for quality lifestyle at anchor and long distance ocean crossings with minimal crew.
The interior design and construction focus on weight optimization without compromising renowned SWS quality. The layout features the master cabin, including a studio and a convertible settee, forward and two en suite guest cabins. Crew quarters aft provide easy access to the yacht’s systems and deck without disturbing guests.
