Southern Wind Shipyard recently launched the first hull from their already successful SW 82-project: the sleek, fresh and sportive sailing yacht Feelin’ Good. Launched in Cape Town, Feelin’ Good is a perfectly modern superyacht, with a length of 24.72 metres. Her contemporary, sharp and strong looks were designed by a team from Farr Yacht Design for naval architecture, and Nauta Design for general, deck and interior designs. And her name truly reflects how guests will feel when they are onboard.
Her spacious, open and panoramic deck spaces perfectly accentuate what sailing truly is all about: really feeling like one with the waves, enjoying the elements and taking in the unmatchable sense of freedom. In short, sailing is about feeling good and that's what this superyacht is all about.
Her refreshing blue hull colour and contemporary exterior look give her a friendly and elegant character, while also maintaining an undeniably confident posture. It's very easy to imagine Feelin’ Good slicing through the waves, with her her guests enjoying the open plan deck, and her wonderfully panoramic, spacious cockpit.
Feelin’ Good perfectly combines the luxurious space of a superyacht with a compact yet voluminous layout, undeniably being of the perfect size for many owners. She allows for easy handling, being close to the wind and water, enjoying life at sea firsthand and not having to deal with the constraints of a large crew.
Just fore of the two helm stations, the large and open cockpit, with bimini shades, is a perfectly secluded, yet open and impressively spacious area for guests to enjoy Feelin’ Good. Comfortable and modern in style, the cockpit is one of three exterior guest areas and an undoubtable favourite. From lounging to dining, this cockpit is a true joy to experience. Just aft, inviting lounge pads extend the cockpit with an area perfect for sitting back and taking in the wonderful surroundings, at anchor or during a sail.
The foredeck can be transformed into a large sun deck with sun pads, bimini shades and magnificent vista views as key ingredients. This deck has a modern design, with light teak and stainless steel setting the contemporary tone.
Inside, Feelin’ Good's amazingly light, elegant and inviting interiors welcome guests into a modern, almost minimalistic, yet warm ambiance of light wood, ample natural light and grey upholstery. The overall atmosphere is gentle and sleek, with a great sense of silent elegance that is truly becoming. The saloon, located in the raised deckhouse, consists of two L-shaped areas, one for lounging and one for dining.
Wide panoramic windows assure large amounts of daylight flowing in and frame the modern interior design with dynamic vista views. A few steps below fore, the main saloon is extended with a comfortable office area.
Located in the bow, the master suite is situated in the most quiet part of the vessel. Light, modern, luxurious and inviting, this master has ample storage space and combines an inviting ambiance with a sizeable stateroom and spacious en suite, with large shower area. As with all areas onboard, the atmosphere is wonderful, light and easygoing. In fact, it isn't hard to see why this charming sailing yacht has been named Feelin’ Good.
Aside from the great master suite, there are two additional guest suites to be found onboard. One double suite and one twin, the latter located just aft of the saloon. Both suites are equally well appointed with comfortable and light en suites in Feelin’ Good's signature soft, modern design.
Feelin’ Good is sure to make all of her guests do just that: make them feel good. With a light ambiance, soft modern style and subtle luxury, she is all about friendliness and elegance.
The SW 82-project being semi-custom, extensive options for layouts and design are obviously possible. As for this successful premiere launch, Feelin’ Good is obviously ready to go out and pamper her guests.
