SWS launches fourth SW102 yacht “Seawave” in Cape Town

Southern Wind Shipyard is proud to announce the launch of SW102 “Seawave”, the fourth hull of this fortunate semi-custom project

Cape Town, South Africa

In the wake of her sister ship Farfalla’ s great success (she has just received an award at the 2015 edition of the World Superyacht Awards for the “Quality & Value” of the project), Southern Wind Shipyard is proud to announce the launch of Seawave – the fourth hull in the successful SW 102 mini-series and the second in a Raised Saloon configuration.

Southern_Wind_Seawave-01-Yacht_AgentsSeawave measures 104ft and flaunts an airy open-space saloon with bright panoramic windows on the coach roof.

The interior layout features the owner’s cabin afore and crew area to the aft, and is fitted out in horizontal Open Grain Teak, with ivory linen on the bulkheads to give all spaces a warm, classical feel.


In contrast to the layout of Farfalla, Seawave also features a spacious studio amidships, which separates the main saloon from the owner’s private quarters.

Thanks to the unfailing brilliance of Farr Yacht Design (Naval architecture) and Nauta Design (Concept, Interior and Exterior Italian design), this SW102 is a perfect expression of the yard’s ability to build high performance, luxury and comfortable yachts.

Southern_Wind_Seawave-03-Yacht_AgentsSeawave will leave Cape Town by the end of July for her 7000 mile maiden voyage to the Med, where she will officially be presented as a world première at the forthcoming Cannes Yachting Festival (8th -13th September) and the Monaco Yacht Show (23rd -26th September).
