Setting the standard

Stemming from the DNA of Southern Wind, the new SW100X will combine all the knowledge and experience gained from the construction of nearly 40 performance sailing yachts in the 90- to 110-foot range.

16 March 2023


This exciting new project will complement the Southern Wind range of yachts that includes the successful SW96, SW108 and SW120.

Farr Yacht Design was the naval architect, and the general design is the product of Southern Wind and Nauta Design with Farr Yacht Design.

The new SW100X represents an evolution of the acclaimed SW100 and SW102 miniseries that marked Southern Wind’s success and leadership in the creation of 30-metre performance sailing superyachts.

The SW100X project has been in the conceptual stage for several years. With the original SW100 setting the bar so high, there was no room for compromises, and this new project and the longer design spiral have allowed a deeper level of fine-tuning and a higher level of efficiency.


Building process

The mandatory high standards of quality and reliability are achieved while remaining cost conscious. Designers ensured optimised usage of sustainable materials in the construction of tooling and yacht.

This brand new design incorporates the very latest technology in naval architecture, aerofoil and hydrodynamic design, with a modern coachroof design creating a 270-degree panoramic view from the saloon, and a new deck arrangement with minimal steps, freedom of movement and clear visibility from the helms.

For the crew, space, comfort and privacy were priorities for up to four crew. The transverse tender garage provides storage space for a Williams 435 without comprising aft accommodation. And finally, the aft deck converts into a seaside lounge area with a spacious swim platform.

Fast and versatile cruiser

Southern Wind Owners are real sailors, and the sailing experience must be dynamic and satisfying. The yacht must be safe and reliable from the day she sails from Cape Town and throughout her lifetime of worldwide cruising and racing.

The SW100X is a go-anywhere yacht that is equally at home in the North Atlantic, St Helena, Sardinia or Bora Bora.


Greener and quieter

As a next-generation sailing superyacht, the SW100X is offered with both traditional and Hybrid Propulsion System. Sustainability is top-priority at Southern Wind.

As a builder of yachts designed for long-range performance cruising with a high level of autonomy and comfort, it has been important for SW to develop a solution that is both environmentally friendly, dependable and enjoyable for the guests on board.
