Sailing BoatsSouthern WindPerformance SloopItalyThe appropriately named “Mrs Seven” is the seventh hull in the Southern Wind100 mini series, and the first in its class with a Raised Saloon. She was launched in Cape Town in July 2008.The new SW 100 Raised Saloon is aimed at owners who enjoy the aggressive, sporty lines of a low coach roof profile and open transom without compromising the generous interior spaces of a Deck Saloon version.
The successful SW 100 RS was designed by the winning collaboration between Farr Yacht Design for the naval architecture and Nauta Design for the general concept, interior design and exterior styling. “Mrs Seven” was laminated up through a process of Vacuum infusion with advanced composite materials (carbon fiber, Kevlar, Corecell and epoxy resins).
The SW 100 RS boasts more than a ton in weight loss through the absence of the deckhouse, the use of a high-modulus carbon mast and Park Avenue boom, produced by Nordic Mast, PBO rigging from Future Fibers and lightweight Harken race winches.
The interior layout follows the classic SWS configuration with the crew area aft consisting of two double cabins, two heads and a galley with separate navigation station. The guest accommodation comprises of two en suite twin single cabins and a double VIP cabin further forward.
The master suite is forward of the mast and is accessible through the study and includes a vanity desk and spacious en suite bathroom with shower box.
The interior styling reflects the sporting vocation of this yacht with the use of light color fabrics and contrasting horizontal grain teak furniture, the combination of which achieves the visual result of an increased interior space.
The engine room of the SW 100 RS is located amidships under the saloon so as to maximize stability. A control cabin, from which equipment and systems can be monitored, allows minimal access to the engine room.Main dimensionsL.O.A. : 30.200 m.L.W.L.: 26.200 m.Beam max.: 6.700 m.Draft: 3.950 m.Displacement: 63,648 kg.Ballast: 22,900 kg.Water tanks: 2,000 l.Fuel tanks: 4,000 l.Rig dimensionsI: 36.300 m.P: 35.470 m.J: 10.700 m.E: 12.230 m.Sail area (with 106% genoa) 463 sqm.Main engineCummins QSB 5.9 MCD 305 hp @2.600 rpmMaterialsAdvanced composite sandwich construction:Composite (Carbon fiber, Kevlar, Epoxy resin and Corecell)CertificationsRINA Class Certificate C HULL MAC, Ych.
