At the end of last month the Cape Town based shipyard Southern Wind launched their new flagship, the SW 110 RS Thalima. The superyacht is built for an experienced owner who for the third time has entrusted the same team, Southern Wind, Farr Yacht Design and Nauta Design, to build his latest superyacht.
Farr Yacht Design was responsible for the hull lines and sail plan, while the interior and exterior were styled by the team of Nauta Design.
Thalima features a traditional lay-out, as found on the smaller Southern Wind sailing yachts. The crew quarters, galley and two twin guest cabins are situated in the stern, amidships there is the saloon, dining area and VIP cabin, and the owner’s cabin with private study, walk-in wardrobe and bathroom is situated forward. The saloon features a seating area to port, dining area to starboard and moving forward, taking the stairs down there is second seating area with a large TV.
The interior styling is typical of Nauta Design’s flair for innovative solutions that provide clean lines and luminous spaces that are also warm and welcoming. The final result was well received by both the client, although he came from a more traditional background, and the shipyard.
Thalima will be exhibited in September at the 2010 Monaco Yacht Show.
