[dropcap]D[/dropcap]uring the course of the last year, Nautor’s Swan has managed to deliver 24 yachts and produce 6 new models at the same time, three of which belonging to the Maxi Swan division, confirming itself as a leader in the Sailing Yachts industry. As a matter of fact, ClubSwan 36, the sailboat launched in last May during the Nations Trophy Med League, was awarded with the Innovation Award for her category at Boot Düsseldorf 2020.
The foil-assisted ClubSwan 36, designed by Juan Kouyoumdjian, brings the fun and excitement of dinghy and keelboat racing while offering a direct entry into one of the most desirable clubs in the yachting world and top level racing environment. Her innovative features are transverse sliding C-foil, a very low drag keel, 2 rudders for easy control and a power full rig since easy to trim for all conditions. Nautor’s Swan has partnered with BMW and Torqeedo to deliver a new high-performance and fossil fuel-free sailing experience.
Another recent piece of news coming from Nautor’s Swan is Swan 58, the latest and longest addition to the fleet. 58 is the result of a long and accurate process of evolution and development and was meant to be a proper Bluewater yacht, with all the typical features for this purpose but without any compromise in terms of performance and pleasure while steering your boat.
Starting from an aft cockpit layout and following the evolution of the Swan 48 deck layout, the 58 deck presents some new features never seen on a Swan of this size. The concept is easy: to give the maximum comfort and liveability at rest, together with maximum efficiency for short-handed sailing, without losing the capability to race with a full crew. The nerve centre is the cockpit, which has been developed following the Swan hallmark distribution of spaces: aft area dedicated to sun bathing and access to the sea, through a wide platform which gives access to the spacious tender garage, the mid-section where all the sailing handling and helm stations are concentrated, and the forward zone, dedicated to guests, protected by the integrated sprayhood and the easy to store bimini.
The 58 interiors have been conceived as a combination between luxury and comfortable living spaces, storage and volumes for systems and safety features. The standard layout offers three guest cabins and three heads, with the possibility to add a guest/crew cabin amidships and an extra crew cabin. The 5 + meters long saloon has plenty of natural light and ventilation, with overall headroom above 2 meters plus great views through the large hull windows. The dinette crosses the whole beam, offering a dining area which can seat up to 10 people and a table that can vary its size according to use, facilitating access to the whole seating area. On the starboard side, an array of possible combinations allows the owner to personalize this area to suit his needs. The galley is designed to be practical at anchor as well as under sail, with a 360° design that gives support while heeling and plenty of work surfaces accessible both inside and outside the galley. The forward cabin provides owners with a proper suite where they can enjoy private time without compromise. Guests have available two en-suite cabins, offered with two possible layouts: two separate beds or one generous queen size.
