Nautor Swan is positioning itself in the superyacht segment with a complete range, including the new Swan 128 as revealed at the 2022 Monaco Yacht Show.

05 October 2022


With the launch of the new ClubSwan 80, the impressive progress of the Swan 88 and the Swan 108 announced last Spring, Nautor Swan is conquering the superyacht segment with a new project: the Swan 128.

The new Swan 128 project was announced at the Monaco Yacht Show and is taking shape at the BTC yard in Pietarsaari, where the hull plug is already completed.

Information on the new Swan 128 was revealed at a conference hosted by Justin Ratcliffe with a panel comprised of the resident Swan designer, Germàn Frers, Lucio Micheletti and Misa Poggi, representing the 128, with Juan K and Mario Pedol for the ClubSwan 80.

The Swan Maxi division brings together the skills and craftsmanship founded from Nautor’s boatbuilding tradition, the innovation of new technical solutions and the ability to create custom solutions meeting customer needs.

This approach signals an ambition to conquer the superyacht segment, offering a new approach to life onboard with architectural and stylistic choices that meet the needs of owners.


ClubSwan 80

There’s a new player in the world of high-performance one-design racing and the ClubSwan 80 is set to make an immediate and profound impression on planet sailing.

Intended to be competitive at the top level of professional regatta racing, the ClubSwan 80 possesses the Swan racing DNA, complete with twin rudders, canting keel, rotating canard and retractable bowsprit.

The interior offers the prospect of a second life as a fast sports cruising yacht.

The ClubSwan 80 completes the ClubSwan Yachts one-design category, alongside the ClubSwan 36, ClubSwan 50, and ClubSwan 125.

The ClubSwan 80 was made by the combined effort and talent of Giovanni Pomati and Enrico Chieffi, Nautor Group’s CEO and Senior Advisor respectively, yacht designer Juan Kouyoumdjian, yacht builder Marcello Persico, the CEO of Persico Marine and interior designer Mario Pedol of Nauta Design.

ClubSwan has always been associated with racing, specifically One-Design racing. The owners enjoy the competition and the coherent, cost-effective package, both from a race program and original investment perspective.

With strict owner-driver rules and One-Design boats, the winning formula is maintaining friendly competition with a chivalrous spirit.

The ClubSwan 80 will take full advantage of this well-established, global circuit of events, with the ClubSwan Racing team also developing a tailormade circuit for the new Maxi yacht.

ClubSwan 80 aims to be the simple answer to those who love racing at top level under strict OD rules and with a controlled budget.

ClubSwan’s goal is to bring the ClubSwan 80 class to the top international events and manage it independently throughout the year.

The Class will benefit from a relevant position at major events thanks to the quality of its performance, unprecedented customer support and innovative format.

Swan 88 and Swan 108

The Swan 88 and Swan 108 are based on an evolution of the brand’s previous popular yachts but with the addition of various features never seen before on a Swan, like the beach area.

These new models, in an advanced state of construction, see the cooperation of a team of international designers, Germàn Frers, Misa Poggi and Lucio Micheletti.

The first Swan 88 hull under construction at the boatbuilding centre in Pietarsaari features a diesel-electric propulsion platform, alternative to the traditional diesel-powered shaft-line, with the possibility of adding several packages.

The yacht embodies the new sustainable philosophy developed by Nautor and presented at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival of the green and blue approach.

The second hull is also in production, with a traditional propulsion and high-performance package.

The first Swan 108 hull will be launched next spring and conceived to cruise around the world with a customised interior by Misa Poggi.

Swan 128

The aims of the new design do not differ from those already envisaged for the 108, the smaller sister yacht, with extra care and attention given to certain key qualities.

Firstly, performance and handling: Germàn Frers has enriched its endless know-how with a specific CFD analysis commissioned to Cape Horn Engineering, to test and optimise the shape of the canoe body in all dynamic sailing conditions.

Secondly, aesthetics: the design was carefully studied and enhanced thanks to a stimulating exchange with all parties involved, especially in terms of the relationship between the hull and superstructure, the latter being particularly agile despite the semi-raised saloon layout.

The owner’s quarters in the interior layout, with a large area of the foreship dedicated to the owner with no design constraints in terms of shape or structure, allow the space to be customised.
