All of Nautorīs know-how and experience in racing and cruising yachts have been incorporated
in this new blue-water Swan 78, a direct descendant of the original Swan
80 and 82 models of the past. She is slightly shorter overall - in order to meet the EC
24.00 metre length overall limitation - beamier and more 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
keel options include deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow possibilities yet
maintaining stability, the same rudder configuration and standard sail plan.
The same could be said of the deck with its modern design, uncluttered surfaces and
straightforward, simple solutions to sail handling and life at sea. The appearance is that
of neatness and efficiency. Two options are offered for the interior, Owner Forward and
Owner Aft. Centered around the main saloon and engine room, which maintain the same
position facilitating weight distribution, planning of installations and flotation trim, both layouts
share the same number of cabins: one double berth VIP and two twin berth layouts.
These are slightly favoured in the Owner Forward version which allows for side by side
bunks on the second and third guest rooms. Crew accommodations for two are ample
and functional in both cases. I can say without reservations that this new Swan is, and
will be, the best of her kind for the years to come
