Nauta Design made the exterior and interior design of SORVIND, while Farr Yacht Design is responsible for the naval architecture.

Nauta has refined the deck geometry of SORVIND, enhancing the lines and shapes to create a more aesthetically pleasing and contemporary appearance. For instance, the coachroof lines have been altered to be less rigid and more visually appealing. Additionally, Jeroen Machielsen of Studio Hermanides has incorporated a “Nordic” touch into the interior décor, meeting the Owner’s desires.

SORVIND is the fifth vessel in the SW 105 mini-series, produced quickly. This achievement serves as a testament to the success of the design and construction team in accomplishing their mission with the SW 105 project.

SORVIND features the proven RS (raised saloon) configuration, allowing guests in the saloon to enjoy unobstructed views of the surrounding scenery. This is made possible by the generous hull windows that allow natural light to illuminate the interiors.

The deck design of SORVIND closely resembles that of previous SW105s, although certain aspects of the coachroof design and geometry have been modified. These modifications include the incorporation of softened chamfers and radiuses, resulting in a sporty yet elegant appearance. A dodger, bimini with removable side panels, and a boom extended awning have been installed in the guest cockpit and sunbathing area to provide protection and shade.

The hull shape of the SW105 series, designed by Farr Yacht Design, is characterized by a narrow bow, a refined waterline entry, and an optimized transom shape. These features contribute to a sleek and aggressive look, further emphasized by SORVIND’s jet-black hull.

Interior of Sailing Yacht SORVIND

The vessel’s interior design is based on the well-established layout of the esteemed Nauta-designed Southern Wind yachts ranging from 100 to 110 feet. To ensure maximum privacy, the owner’s suite is situated ahead of the saloon, with a VIP cabin nearby and two guest cabins outside the saloon. The starboard cabin’s twin beds can be converted into a double bed, accommodating eight guests.

The amidship saloon is a spacious and luminous area where guests can unwind comfortably on sofas or gather around the dining table. Adjacent to the living space is a bespoke bar that separates the main saloon from the owner’s private quarters.

The interior color scheme has been meticulously curated by Jeroen Machielsen of the esteemed Dutch studio Hermanides, who has overseen the decor. The color palette is inspired by the northern landscape, reflecting the owner’s Nordic heritage, with a combination of nights and bright white snow, creating a warm and inviting ambiance that is both cozy and refreshing.

“Distinctive, refined, and essential: these were the pillars of my vision, reflected in my lifestyle and instilled in every detail of my yacht,” says the owner. “I wanted a sailing yacht that could still be in touch with the ocean, a sensation that sometimes gets lost with bigger boats. I think we really hit a nice size of boat and a great style. Everything is uncluttered, smooth and clean.”
