The Southern Wind shipyard in Cape Town, South Africa has recently launched the first SW 102 DS sailing yacht, christened Almagores II. The yacht was commissioned by an Italian owner, who is a keen sailor, but owned a motor yacht before.
Designed by Nauta Yacht Design and Farr Yacht Design, Almagores II will complete her sea trials in the Table Bay water before she leaves to the Mediterreanen. She will officially be presented at the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show in September.
The SW 102 DS was developed on the experience the shipyard gained in building 13 SW 100, 1 SW 110 and 1 SW 94 sailing yacht in the past 6 years. Hull number 2 of the SW 102 series, S/Y Atalante, is due for launch in December 2012.
