Officially introduced in March 2023, the SW100X Allseas represents a ground-breaking addition to Southern Wind’s exceptional lineup of high-performance superyachts. (Here all our posts about Southern Wind)
SW100X; naval architecture by Farr and interiors by Nauta
Stemming from the DNA of Southern Wind, the new SW100X, designed in collaboration with the accomplished team of Farr Yacht Design for the Naval Architecture and Nauta Design for the exterior and interior design, combines the knowledge and experience gained from the construction of nearly 40 performance sailing yachts in the 90-110 feet range.
An extraordinary seaview
With the SW100X, Southern Wind and the design team have redefined the connection between the guests and the sea to an unparalleled level, previously unseen on a sailing yacht of this size. This transformation extends not only to the exterior spaces, where a sprawling 20-square-meter seaside lounge provides an authentic terrace on the sea, but also permeates the interior spaces. The glass windows and surfaces surpass those found on any comparable sailing yacht, allowing for extraordinary views of the surrounding seascape and bathing the interior with natural light.
SW100X: a four cabins layout
In shaping the layout of the SW100X, Southern Wind drew inspiration from their rich heritage, starting from the historic SW100 series, and continuing with the SW102, SW96, and SW105 semi-custom projects. Thanks to the transversal orientation of the tender garage, the internal volumes have been optimized to achieve interior spaces typically associated with a 105-foot vessel within a 100-foot hull.
SW100X features the well-proven Southern Wind four en-suite cabin layout, complemented by a versatile multi-purpose area for a TV lounge, workspace, or bar.vThe full-beam owner’s cabin forward features a centerline double berth with bedside tables and reading lights on either side. On the starboard side, an ergonomic and elegant chaise-lounge can be replaced with a vanity desk.
An ample midship VIP cabin offers a 1.60m wide by 2.05m long berth. Two en-suite twin cabins are located aft and forward of the saloon and can be converted into double cabins for maximum versatility.
Elegance and spaciousness define SW100X‘s full-beam saloon making it the brightest area of the interior. Natural light flows into the saloon through the 270° panoramic windows in the newly designed coach-roof, extra-large hull windows on either side, and a transparent double wide companionway. For those seeking even more light, an optional central skylight is available. With an 8-person square dining table and an adjacent L-shaped seating area, conviviality onboard is assured.
The spacious and comfortable crew area aft can accommodate up to four crew members. It comprises two en-suite cabins, a generous galley, crew mess, and the navigation station. An optional door separates the crew mess and crew cabins from the galley, allowing guests to enjoy the galley themselves when no support by the crew is required. This layout has proven to be ideal for long-distance cruising and is the preferred arrangement for charter yachts.
Interiors in the sign of Nauta
The interior is meticulously crafted with top-quality materials and furniture built to the highest marine standards, utilizing sandwich construction with honeycomb core to reduce weight while maintaining a superyacht finish.
Nauta Yacht Design have drawn on their extensive experience to create an interior design that seamlessly blends an unmistakable style with the practical purposes of onboard living and oceangoing navigation.
The interior spaces and style offer the possibility to mix built-in and loose furniture, choosing different finishings for bed frames, side tables and various accessories, thus giving the perception of wider spaces and the pleasant feeling of “being at home”.
The female mould for the SW100X hull has recently been completed in Cape Town and is ready to accommodate the carbon lamination of the hull. The first available launch slot is scheduled for the beginning of 2025.
