Luxury sailing yacht SØRVIND, which was launched earlier this year in Cape Town, South Africa, has completed her sea trials and is now cruising to the Mediterranean where she will be available for summer luxury yacht charters.
SØRVIND, the Norwegian word for ‘Southern Wind‘, is the fifth hull in the successful SW105 model measuring 32m/105ft. The Owner wanted S/Y SØRVIND to be ‘distinctive, refined and essential’. Her design brief specified a vessel capable of high-performance blue water cruising that was fun to sail and ‘optimised for success on the charter market’. As such, special attention has been given to hospitality features, offering comfort and cutting-edge entertainment for all guests onboard.
The outdoor spaces provide a large cockpit fitted with seating and drinks tables on both sides for dining alfresco. Two double sunbeds are immediately behind, and space forward and aft can be used for exercise, observation or additional sunbathing and lounging while at anchor.
The sultry interiors have a monochrome colour scheme perfect for entertaining and celebrating a special event: The raised main salon is flooded with natural light through the skylights, and as evening descends carefully placed lighting throughout the space creates a comfortable and homely ambience for lounging and dining. A forward bar separates this main guest area from the Owner’s private area forward.
The accommodation sleeps up to 8 guests across 4 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite, 1 VIP stateroom and 2 double cabins. Throughout the cruise, a professional crew of 6 will be on-hand to provide first-class service.
Superyacht SØRVIND will make her public debut at the Monaco Yacht Show 2022, taking place from 28th September to 1st October.

Satin-finish metal and Arabescato Carrara marble add refined touches to complete the interior.
The accommodation sleeps up to 10 guests over 5 en-suite cabins: 1 Master suite on the main deck forward and 4 guests cabins on the lower deck.
