A 1:1 mock-up interiors of the new Swan 78 has been built by Nautor’s carpenters in BTC, Finland. Created to showcase the incredible volume of the yacht, it is available for visits.
Nautor’s Swan has announced the sale of two new Swan 78. The preliminary design was first presented at the beginning of 2016. Following further model development, these two yachts were sold to first-time Swan owners and will be delivered in Spring 2018.
“The second Swan 78 sold from just the drawings, endorses the path that Nautor’s Swan is taking to develop its line,” comments Enrico Chieffi, Nautor’s Swan VP.
He adds: “2016 has been a very busy year for us, having delivered the models ClubSwan 50, Swan 54 and Swan 115. The Swan 95S is also nearing completion and is scheduled to be delivered next spring, together with the fourth Swan 115.
“If you add to this the recent Swan78 sales and the brand new Swan 65 design, which is going to be presented during the next Düsseldorf Boat Show, we can strongly affirm that more than ever, we are investing in developing new, innovative, beautiful, seaworthy yachts and the market is increasing quickly for us,” he concludes.
Blue water cruiser
Her length has been deliberately contained in order to meet the EC 24m length overall limitation, and her hull form is beamy and very powerful.
The modern hull lines, including a wide stern above the waterline, twin rudders and racing oriented keel design, are a reflection of the rapid evolution of yacht design during the past years, propelled by the experiences made on round-the-world races and other offshore events.
The new boat will be faster, safer, easier to control and, as a result, more comfortable at sea, the builder claims.
The keel options include deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow possibilities yet maintaining stability, the same twin rudder configuration and standard sail plan.
Two options are offered for the interior, owner forward and owner aft. Life onboard is centred on the spacious main saloon, with panoramic 360° view, 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.
