Elegance, seaworthiness, quality of build and passion for design secure Southern Wind’s reputation

The Superyacht Report, June 2006

Southern Wind Shipyard founder Guglielmo Persico – known to everyone as Willy – grew up surrounded by sailboats in the idyllic coastal city of Naples. Italian culture and a passion for sailing are the driving forces behind every SWS yacht. These qualities are strengthened by a 20-year partnership with multi-award-winning Italian studio Nauta Design, experts in contemporary yacht design since 1985. Nauta’s heritage and philosophy fits seamlessly with that of Southern Wind Shipyard. Every yacht built from this alliance demonstrates both understated luxury and superlative sporting style, where design is conceived to serve functionality and comfort.
