Sailing yacht Ammonite, the third unit of the 31.41-metre Southern Wind SW96 miniseries, is currently under construction at the Cape Town-based Southern Wind shipyard and is due for delivery during 2020. Built for an owner eager to experience the performance capabilities of the SW96 miniseries, Ammonite is the perfect blend of her two predecessors, Sorceress and Seatius.

Detailings and electrical systems will be done in-house by the Southern Wind shipyard. Unlike the first two units from the SW96 miniseries, Ammonite will have a tender garage able to accommodate a 3.95-metre tender and two side lazarettes.
