Two of the latest new models from Nautor’s Swan, the pure bluewater Swan 54 and the cutting-edge One Design ClubSwan 50 will be exhibited for the first time in US at the Annapolis Boat Show (5-9 October 2017 – Dock D).
Open spaces, distant horizons, unspoiled islands: the Swan 54 is a thoroughbred bluewater cruiser. Designed by Germán Frers, the moderate free board and deep V hull, also available with daggerboard and twin rudders, ensure smooth sailing in rough conditions. The deck plan has been carefully designed with all sail controls next to the twin helms, allowing the Swan 54 to be easily sailed short-handed. Below the spacious accommodation has been handcrafted by Nautor Finnish craftsmen – perfect for extended stays aboard.
She has been refined in all departments and stands out in the crowd because of her design and the inherent quality of her construction. This is a sailing yacht, large enough for a group of six to cruise in comfort but small enough to be able to be sailed and maintained by her owners.
Germàn Frers comments: “This is the boat anybody like me with a wealth of offshore racing experience and a taste for blue water cruising with family and friends, or young people looking to have the adventure of their lives, would dream to own and enjoy in all places of the world without limitations of any sort. She is graceful, elegant and nice looking, the freeboards and overhangs are well proportioned and will have timeless appeal. Form and function are in complete harmony. The Swan 54 is a joy to sail”.
With 20 ClubSwan 50s sold to date, 2017 is an exciting first season of sailing for Nautor’s newest One Design Class.
Designed by Juan Kouyoumidjian to mark the Finnish brand’s 50th anniversary in 2016, the ClubSwan 50 has had great reviews from the customers since its debut at the Rolex Swan Cup in September 2016 and interest in the ClubSwan 50 continues to grow.
The new ClubSwan 50 is at the cutting edge of contemporary yacht design, she is an extremely fast boat that would also be easy to take to the limit, convertible into a sports cruiser with limited crew, with captivating looks and the natural elegance of a Swan. The yacht is both competitive in class racing but conceived as a strict One Design, with a professionally managed Class and an exciting racing program for Owners. Manufactured from extremely lightweight structures, mainly in carbon fibre, the interiors of the ClubSwan 50 are finished with premium materials also thanks to the collaboration with Poltrona Frau.
The pinnacle event of the season will be the Nations Trophy that will be held in Palma de Mallorca from October 10th to the 14th.
