SWCAT90: Carbon beauty from Southern Wind
The SWCAT90 is a 27m sailing catamaran, constructed in carbon composite, that combines all the greatest attributes of the SWS monohull yachts into a versatile catamaran design, offering an even higher level of comfort and greater autonomy with the ability to stay longer periods without touching ports. The SWCAT90 concept has been developed in collaboration with the long-term partner Nauta Design, who were responsible for the interior and exterior design and styling. Berret-Racoupeau, the catamaran specialist design firm based in La Rochelle conceived the naval architecture. The space and volume available on a catamaran of this scale is comparable to a 39m monohull. With 171m2 of interior floorspace, the SWCAT90 will feature vast saloon area of 45m2 with 360o panoramic views. The deck space, including the flybridge and two cockpits is an impressive 207m2, an increase of 50% from similarly sized monohull. The interior layout sees four guest cabins plus two or three crew cabins, with the crew quarters separated from the luxury guest areas to allow for maximum privacy. With this exciting new project, SWS has magnified their greatest qualities and will deliver a sailing catamaran that is fast and fun to sail to the furthest corners of the globe in the ultimate comfort and safety.
