Southern Wind SW96 SEATIUS luxury performance sailing yacht launched

South African shipyard Southern Wind announced the launch of their second SW96 high-performance cruiser racers and christened this beauty SEATIUS

Sailing yacht SEATIUS is a 31,41m winning formula thanks to the best Southern Wind designers teaming up with Nauta Design for general concept, deck and interior design as well as Farr Yacht Design responsible for naval architecture and general concept. Different to SW96 SORCERESS hull number 1 being a true high performance racer, the focus for SEATIUS was more on bluewater performance cruising. For example, the sound insulation thanks to a weight-optimized sandwich of foam core and infused carbon skin has been enhanced. The racing-DNA, however, is still there which can be seen in light wind speeds moving her light displacement of 58.5 tons with a manageable rig size. 

The hull of SW96 SEATIUS performance yacht is easy to handle and features a lifting keel with twin rudder configuration. The deck hardware comprises longitudinal jib tracks and hydraulic cars paired with other easy-sailing features. A corridor with minimal level changes connects the maneuvering cockpit to the guest area for easy and safe circulation when cruising.

Southern Wind SEATIUS SW96 sailing yacht has a classic 3-cabin layout with her luxurious master cabin located forward. The crew quarters with galley and crew mess are all located aft.

The proud new owners of Southern Wind SEATIUS luxury performance yacht will cruise the world and leave Cape Town for her first 7.000 miles maiden voyage in April after the extensive sea trials are going to be completed.
