Southern Star SW78 is an elegant 78ft (23.95m) sailing yacht built in 2004 by Southern Wind. The Reichel Pugh design gives her a fast-cruising character and the Nauta Interior design makes her comfortable yet sophisticated.
Southern Star is a real cruiser-racer, ideal for blue-water cruises. The deck layout provides a large central cockpit amidship and a maneuvering cockpit aft. The access below deck is either through the aft and the guest cockpit companionways.
From the central cockpit, a ladder leads to the full-beam saloon, a welcoming living area with a dining table for 8/10 seats plus an opposite lounging area, fully equipped to offer livability, relaxation and convivial enjoyment.
Southern Star sleeps up to 6 guests in 3 en-suite cabins, including a large master cabin forward and two comfortable double guest cabins amidship, one with two separate beds while the other with bunk beds.
The aft companionway leads to the crew area where the galley, machinery spaces and the crew accommodations are located.
To protect the central cockpit from the hot Mediterranean sun, a bimini is permanently installed and a bigger sun-owning could be rigged on the boom while at anchor.
A full set of cushions and settees keep the guests comfy and relaxed while sunbathing and
a large dodger keeps them dry while sailing.
For the entertainment on the water, Southern Star is equipped with a semirigid tender with a 25hp outboard able to pull you on a wakeboard. Snorkelling and fishing gears come along. Access to the sea is provided by an openable swimming platform on the transom.
Air conditioning, ice maker and a beverages fridge are at disposal while watching satellite tv and Netflix on a 50” smart TV or while listening to music out from a very powerful HIFI system that provides sound inside and outside the yacht.
Sails wardrobe includes a full batten mainsail, jib and staysail. For light and downwind conditions, a Code 0 or a gennaker will come out from the sail locker.
