Nautor’s Swan of Finland has unveiled the latest addition to its SwanLine of bluewater cruisers, the Swan 54.
The German Frers-designed yacht has a moderate displacement hull and high-performance lead keel, and is also available with variable draught (1.4m), an efficient daggerboard and twin rudders. The sail plan is designed for maximum performance, yet easy handling, with a generous foretriangle.
The deck layout has been developed to ensure comfortable sailing with limited crew and provide areas designed to best enjoy life onboard. The transom opens fully into a wide swim platform allowing direct access to the water.
Similar to the deck layout, the interior has been designed to ensure maximum comfort for long periods, both under sail and at anchor.
The original configuration offers three double cabins, with the owner’s cabin forward and two guest cabins, one central and the other aft. There is also a fourth cabin dedicated to systems and storage, including the generator and washing machine, with the possibility to add a worktable so as to convert it into a crew cabin.
The galley, said to be one of the largest in this class of yacht, is located in the most stable part of the boat and close to the companionway, enabling to cook comfortably even while underway.
The hull of the Swan 54 is built with single skin construction using glassfibre reinforced vinylester laminate, with multiaxial or unidirectional fibres in selected areas. The deck is in sandwich with closed cell foam core, which reduces weight and insulates.
Nautor’s Swan range is said to be one of the broadest of any yacht builder, stretching from 54ft-115ft. All Swans are built exclusively in-house at Nautor’s facilities in northern Finland.
