SW96 RAISED SALOON

SW96 RAISED SALOON

SW96 “SORCERESS” is the first unit in the new miniseries of high performance cruiser 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.
