Delivered in December 2020, the Custom RP-NAUTA 100 MORGANA completed her maiden voyage from Cape Town to the Mediterranean Sea 30 days after her departure: a 6900-mile sea trial, confirming the great sailing potential of this yacht, delivered by semi-custom and custom sailing yacht builders Southern Wind.
“Morgana really ticks all the boxes: style, performance, comfort and cutting edge technology. It is such an experience to helm Morgana, sailing at 16 or 18 knots and feeling completely in control. She is powerful and balanced.” Marco Alberti, SWS General Manager.

DISCOVER THE STORY, CHAPTER BY CHAPTER
Chapter 1: Project Philosophy
“We like to believe that with Morgana we didn’t just build a custom, we built an efficient custom sailing yacht. We rate the word ‘efficient’ highly. The process is very important for efficiency and so is the technology we use on board.”
Andrea Micheli, SWS Commercial Director
Chapter 2: General Concept
“This is my ideal boat because I love racing and I like performance, which also means efficiency and safety when you’re out in tough weather. Designing her was a nice and interesting process and I’m very happy with the results.“
Mario Pedol, Nauta Design
Chapter 4: The Shipyard
“Morgana really ticks all the boxes: style, performance, comfort and cutting edge technology. It is such an experience to helm Morgana, sailing at 16 or 18 knots and feeling completely in control. She is powerful and balanced.”
Marco Alberti, SWS General Manager
Chapter 5: The Exterior
“The brief from the owner was to have a light performance boat that can go sailing around the world but also perform in the best regattas around the world. To make sure the boat is the most efficient while sailing, we saved weight high up on the boat and on the extremities.”
Yann Dabbadie, SWS Technical Manager
Chapter 6: The Interior
“The clean lines and choice of finishes and details has really resulted in a bold and unique interior which I think is appropriate for this custom 100′. The construction draws from Southern Wind’s years of experience delivering lightweight paper and foam core interiors.”
Niki Jennings, SWS Technical Coordinator – Interior
Chapter 7: Project Management
“Southern Wind showed good flexibility in terms of design and approach, we proposed some different solutions compared to the standards of the yard and they embraced the proposals and actually developed them further to a very good standard.”
Carlo Torre, Project Manager, MYT.
