The fifth unit of the successful SW96 project, scheduled for delivery at the end of 2023, 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 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.


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 aft 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, she will be delivered at the end of 2023. We are looking forward to welcoming her to the Southern Wind fleet.
