SW105 is a high-performance cruiser with exceptional sea keeping characteristics that provides all comforts of a modern Superyacht, while also exceling on coastal or transatlantic race courses.
The aim of the yacht designers when conceiving this project was to incorporate a modicum of race boat features into a cruiser/racer while keeping a beautiful aesthetic and a high level of comfort.
SW105’s naval architecture has been conceived to host three different keel configurations (fixed, telescopic, lifting) to satisfy the requirements of different owners. The displacement to yacht length ratio has been optimized for top performance. SW105 features generously wide aft sections and an open transom which ensure an ample deck area and abundant interior volumes, elements that are a real plus for any performance cruiser.
The modern design of SW105 emerges strongly on the single level deck: on top of comfortable and safe passage, this layout creates a continuous line from stern to coachroof that makes the yacht look longer and sleeker.
Thanks to the different deck layout options the yacht can feature either a Raised Saloon or a Deck Saloon configuration. In both cases, the main saloon is a light, bright open space where eight to ten people can relax and converse in comfort on couches or at the dining table. Immediately fore of the living area, a wide studio, TV or Bar area flawlessly separates the main saloon from the owner’s private area. The interior features Southern Wind Shipyard’s most popular owner’s cabin forward layout with three comfortable guest cabins amidships and crew quarters aft. The crew area is an efficient working environment for five and includes a spacious galley that open onto the crew mess, a nav station and three crew cabins.
