The fifth unit of the successful SW96 project, scheduled for delivery at the beginning 2024, is now under construction.

The yacht has been conceived for a second-time Southern Wind owner looking to alternate comfortable cruising in the company of his family with more performance-oriented experiences. The SW96#05 will be a further evolution of the successful SW96 series with an additional emphasis on racing.


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 62.000 kg and a tall rig size, grant excellent speed in light air. To enhance her performance soul, the yacht has a Hall Spars 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.


Her natural teak deck has a corridor with minimal level changes between the manoeuvring cockpit and the guest area for easy and safe circulation when cruising.

SW96#05 features a three-guest cabin layout with a wide TV area forward of the saloon and a larger owner’s suite with ample closet space forward. The aft crew area includes a large captain’s cabin on portside and a crew cabin on starboard.

Built in accordance with RINA Charter Class regulations.
