South African shipyard, Southern Wind, has announced that the 31.7m sailing yacht Crossbow has been delivered. She is the fifth hull in the SW102 mini-series and third in the Raised Saloon version.

Renowned superyacht designer Nauta Design, famed for the design of the largest superyacht in the fleet, 180m Azzam, are responsible for the creation of the conceptual, interior and exterior design of the project. Thanks to the time-tested collaboration with Farr Yacht Design for the naval architecture, the project was swiftly brought to life in just under two years.

A spacious flush deck shapes Crossbow’s simplistic profile, which includes a hidden tender garage for a 4.2m dinghy and a mainsail captive winch. The configuration of the raised saloon yacht’s design also facilitates higher ceilings throughout. A spacious Scandinavian style design forms the interior of Crossbow, which is bright as a result of the light oak panelling, in addition to the off white and coral colour scheme.

In terms of the layout, the main saloon and spacious studio are one single space, which has been subtly segregated from the owner’s area. The aft crew quarters also feature a crew mess and working galley.

Crossbow is the 20th yacht delivered by the South African superyacht builder, she is certified under RINA Charter Class C+.
