With the announcement of the New Maxi Era of performance Swan Superyachts, the launch of the new Swan 88, the first Swan with a hybrid propulsion and the Swan 108 last Spring, Nautor’s Swan has paved the way for the Swan 120 début.
The 120 project announced at the same show in 2018, has now become reality and represents the infinite possibilities Nautor offers its clients to make their Swan unique.
The Swan 120 brings together the skill and craftsmanship of Nautor’s boatbuilding tradition, the innovation of new technical solutions and in addition, a fully custom interior, which for this first hull has a Mark Whiteley signature.
Together with the Swan 120, her smaller sister, the Swan 98 will be on display, marking a strong signal by Nautor to conquer the sailing superyacht segment, offering a new approach to life onboard, with architectural and stylistic choices that reflect the tastes of the owners – offering extreme comfort, innovative solutions always respecting the pillars of the brand DNA: Performance, Innovation, Quality and Elegance.
ClubSwan 125, launched last July and built to go faster than the wind, marks an important milestone in the history of Nautor.
The yacht, which sees the cooperation of the most brilliant minds in the marine industry hit the water in Pietarsaari, rounding off a complex and challenging project but with the end-result exceeding all expectations.
The great achievement at the Rolex Fastnet Race, with Skorpios winning the title of Monohull line honours made the team behind the project and the crew all very proud.
The ClubSwan 80 is the latest in the ClubSwan family with the aim of creating a new class of one-design yachts in the Maxi yacht segment.
Performance is the pillar of this project. The first unit is under construction at Persico Marine, a strategic partner. The choice of this key player for the build comes from the values of innovation and technology that both companies share.
The hull lamination is now close to completion, with the last structural parts in the keel area being finalised, then the systems’ fit operations will commence from the engine room, while the bulkhead structural lamination will be completed too.
In parallel the deck dry fit will proceed so that by mid-October the ‘deck on’ hull stage will be achieved as planned. The construction schedule is therefore progressing to meet the first hull hitting the water by Spring 2022.
The Swan 88 is based on an evolution of the brand’s previous popular yachts but with the addition of various innovative features never seen before on a Swan.
The yacht is a beauty, with a distinctly feminine elegance to her lines while delivering a superyacht experience on a hull platform that is both efficient and easy to maintain.
The new project features the possibility of a diesel-electric propulsion platform, alternative to the traditional diesel powered shaft-line, with the possibility of adding several packages that are implementing the new “green&blue” Swan sustainability philosophy.
Positioned between the Swan 98 and Swan 120, the Swan 108 is based on the evolution of previous Maxi Swans, particularly in regard to the exterior lines, but with the addition of innovative solutions.
Designed with moderate freeboards like every Swan yacht, this new model offers seaworthiness, great comfort at sea also in very rough conditions, and handles gently in waves.
This model sees the cooperation of a team of international designers, Germàn Frers, Misa Poggi and Lucio Micheletti, with their expertise gained in different fields from automotive to residential architecture, opening the way to solutions never seen on a sailing yacht, while preserving the renowned Swan DNA.
