Built with two decades of superyacht construction experience gained at Cape Town’s renowned Southern Wind Shipyard, the SW82 “Feelin’ Good” is the first of this hull series to recently launch. Designed by Farr Yacht Design and Nauta, and sporting a striking ALEXSEAL® metallic Dolphine Blue finish, “Feelin’ Good” has flawlessly captured the essence of bluewater sailing.
The Southern Wind Shipyard is the dream realizations of a man who has always breathed the sea air – Guglielmo “Willy” Persico. He grew up following his father’s work in Naples shipyards and applied his degree in engineering as the head at Cantieri Navali Rodriguez – famous for the production of hydroplanes and fast ships. But Willy’s true love is sailing, and this passion helped to mold the taste and experience needed to create the best that the market can offer – realized in the SW82 and her sister vessels.
Willy Persico has always managed relations with customers directly, establishing a relationship of complicity. The reason is simple: he is one of them. A picture you will find painted similarly at ALEXSEAL. From the management team of our parent company, Mankiewicz Gebr. & Co. to the technical sales managers assisting applicators in yards the world over, we share a personal passion for boating and have a genuine interest in the success of your finish.
