The Swan 78-001 Haromi and Swan 78-002 Kinina, the two of four Swan 78s already sold, designed by Germán Frers, have just been launched in Pietarsaari.
Haromi will attend the Rolex Swan Cup 2018 in Porto Cervo (9-16 September) and the Genova Boat Show together with Swan 54. Her sistership, Kinina, will be on display at the Cannes Yacht Show (11-16 September).
The latest version of the Swan 115, hull n. 004 will be exhibited in a worldwide preview at the Monaco Yacht Show.
In the US, Nautor’s Swan will take part at the Annapolis Boat Show with the Swan 54.
Nautor’s Swan is also pleased to announce a new partnership with the Italian leader in outdoor furniture, Talenti. Founded in 2004 by Fabrizio Cameli, Talenti combines elegance, functionality and quality, offering products for both dining and living areas. With a distinctive reference to the indoor world, these products are able to meet and satisfy not only the needs of any outdoor setting, both private and contract, but also offer an array of styles, from classic to contemporary. Talenti’s beautiful collections will give a special touch to Nautor’s Swan boat show stands.
All of Nautor´s know-how and experience in racing and cruising yachts have been incorporated into this new blue-water Swan 78. Her length has been deliberately contained in order to meet the EC 24.00 meters length overall limitation, and her hull form is beamy and very powerful. Modern hull lines, with a flared stern above the waterline, twin rudders and a telescopic keel make Haromi a performance yacht capable of fast long-distance cruising, or an ideal home-from-home for relaxing onboard in privacy with friends and family.
Haromi is fitted out with a bespoke performance package to upgrade her racing ability, reflecting her owner’s competitive success. This includes a longer bowsprit, ECsix carbon rigging, halyard locks, a square-top mainsail with running backstays, a mainsheet traveller and additional powered winches on the coachroof.
Otherwise, keel options include deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow possibilities yet always maintaining stability. The twin rudder configuration and standard sail plan remain constants. Swan 78-002 Kinina has a standard keel with a 4m draft.
Hull and bulkheads are in prepreg glass/carbon, deck and structures in full carbon epoxy sandwich with Corecell foam core, vacuum and oven cured.
On the Swan 78 Frers signature lines have given their very best, with sleek curves that create a volume capable of protecting the cockpit and creating more space below. The design is a masterly mix of curved lines and multifaceted surfaces, with 360 degrees windows and a generous coachroof that doubles up as a sunbathing area. The recessed sprayhood and the large bimini keep guests always well protected in a cockpit/lounge
The contemporary deck design features clean spaces and simple but effective solutions for sail handling and life at sea. The impression is one of neatness and efficiency. The layout has been optimised for shorthanded sailing with five standard powered winches close to the twin helm stations, and all lines lead aft below deck from the mast. The cockpit has been designed with maxi-style C-shaped settees, two separate tables and a wide sprayhood with recessed stowage. A large opening transom with a huge swim platform creates a perfect teak-decked ‘beach’ over four meters wide.
To provide the most flexibility and satisfy any possible owners’ requirement, the interiors of the Swan 78 are offered in two exclusive and different layouts: Owner Forward (OF) and Owner Aft (OA). With the OF configuration, the Owner has a large suite forward, cooler and quieter. It is 4.5m long, with an island bed that is completely accessible on three sides. A desk and dedicated bathroom, with large separate shower compartment, complete this luxurious apartment. The Owners Aft version is dedicated to owners who wish to sail long distances and in any weather. The large suite, in this case, is placed to the stern, in the area where there is less movement and less noise under sail. The cabin provides an impressive 6m width, thanks to the generous volumes of the modern hull shape.
Whichever the version, the accommodation also features three guest cabins with different layouts, all en-suite with separate shower compartments.
The light and fresh interiors of Swan 78-001 Haromi are the result of combining white treated teak with a contrasting dark wengé floor. White horizontal panelling in the guest cabins and diluted aquatic colors of soft furnishings are featured in all living areas. Taupe leather detailing can be found on tabletops, fittings and the Owner´s cabin headboard featuring integrated leather pockets.
Life onboard is centered around the spacious main saloon, over 6 m wide, with panoramic 360° views, with both layouts sharing the same number of cabins: one double berth VIP and two twin berth layouts.
Crew accommodations for two are ample and functional in both cases. The below-floor engine room, which keeps the same position regardless of layout choice, facilitates weight distribution, the planning of installations and flotation trim.
The galley is in the same area, with large cooking areas and refrigerated stowage.
The celebrated Nautor finish guarantees top quality both in the technical details and in the finishing, with a wide choice of veneers and accessories.
Haromi and her sisteship Swan 78-002 Kinina features the Owner Forward layout.
Forward of the mast the deck is completely uncluttered, an expanse of pure teak that ends at the forepeak with the large locker for the anchoring system.
