35m yacht Power of 2 delivered and embarks on her maiden voyage

Written by Laura Nicholls

South African shipyard Southern Wind has delivered the 34.59-metre yacht Power of 2, the third unit of the SW105 miniseries, to her new owner after weeks of intense sea trials. The new owner, a keen sailor who was looking to upgrade, is taking Power of 2 to the Mediterranean for technical reasons before sailing to Norway.SW105#03 Power of 2 yacht sailingPhoto: Giuliano SargentiniSW105#03 Power of 2 yacht sailingPhoto: Giuliano SargentiniDesigned by Farr Yacht Design and Nauta Design, the new sloop features fixed bowsprit, integrated anchor arm, twin rudder system and lifting keel for smooth sailing in most sea and wind conditions and access to shallow ports and anchorages. Considerations have been made to maintain a sleek design such as jib sheets and runner retrievers situated below the side decks and two captive winches to control the mainsail and halyard, all controlled via a remote.  SW105#03 Power of 2 yacht deckPhoto: Giuliano Sargentini

For the superyacht’s interior, Nauta Design created a unique ‘deck saloon’ design in collaboration with the shipyard to feature large panoramic windows. Massimo Gino from Nauta Design commented: “When an owner decides to reduce the width of the saloon to get a 360’ view, it is down to the designers to provide the maximum effect while maintaining a sporty exterior look and feel, that is pleasing and yet, at the same time, slightly aggressive.” SW105#03 Power of 2 yacht living spacePhoto: Giuliano SargentiniSW105#03 Power of 2 yacht master's cabinPhoto: Giuliano SargentiniThe eco-friendly brief for the yacht included “a number of challenges not only in the design of this yacht but in our greater build process”, as Marco Alberti, SWS General Manager, explains: “The result has been a number of efficiencies and improvements that will be carried over in future builds. As an example, water and fuel treatment systems on board this SW105 were more complex than normal, incorporating fuel polishers and water softeners. Added to that, fridges are stocked with carefully stowed glass bottles filled with drinking water that is desalinated, re-mineralised and sterilised on board.”
