The yacht’s hull and deck are built in sandwich with a foam core and infused carbon skins for lighter weight and improved sound insulation. Her lightship displacement of 58.800 kg and a rig size taller than that of her sisterships, grant excellent speed in light air. To enhance her performance soul, the yacht has a high modulus carbon mast and carbon boom as well as EC6+ carbon rigging.
SW96#05’s hull has full waterlines with straight end diagonals, a wide, low transom and full forward sections. These, together with a fixed bowsprit, a lifting keel (3.4-5.5m) and twin rudder configuration, make her easy to sail and control in a wide range of conditions.
SW96#05 has a Raised Saloon layout where a sleek coachroof with panoramic windows floods the high ceilinged interior with light. Additional views and light come through hull portlights.
