After departing for a more than 7,000 nautical mile maiden voyage from South Africa, Morgana, the 30-metre sailing yacht has been delivered to her owner in La Spezia, Italy.Photo: Southern WindThe custom-project was commissioned in 2017 and was built by Southern Wind in South Africa. Three aspects of the project were essential to the owner while conceptualising the yacht, according to Mario Pedrol, president of Nauta Design: “functionality for safe and comfortable navigation, performance to enjoy racing in the most famous superyacht regattas and sexy, appealing design to give the yacht a modern, aggressive and sporty look.”
She features naval architecture by Reichel / Pugh Yacht Design and both an interior and exterior design by Nauta Yachts. More than 3,000 hours were spent on her design process alone.Photo: Rob KamhootPhoto: Southern Wind ShipyardPhoto: Rob KamhootHer exterior appears to be minimalist as it features a flush, uncluttered deck but Morgana hosts a tender garage, spacious foredeck locker, hidden mooring arrangement, and an underwater anchor system.Photo: Southern Wind ShipyardPhoto: Southern Wind ShipyardConstructed with various types of carbon and equipped with a lifting keel, Morgana is lightweight and optimised for racing performance and cruising comfort. The vision for Morgana was tediously conceived by her owner who wanted to combine a refined design aesthetic with “a fast bluewater cruiser that could also compete in superyacht regattas” according to Massimo Gino, co-founder and partner at Nauta.Photo: Rob KamhootInside, Morgana can accommodate her guests across three staterooms including a spacious owner’s suite.Photo: Rob Kamhoot
