World renowned Nautor’s Swan line of exclusive high-performance yachts for sale was birthed 50 years ago in Finland. Founder Pekka Koskenkyla pioneered the design and manufacture of the first high-class fibreglass sailing yacht of over 10m. He called her the Swan 36. In 1968, this new innovation took the sailing world by storm enjoying escalating success in regattas around the United Kingdom. The attention she received put Nautor’s Swan on centre stage in the world of yachting and they quickly went on to develop Swan 37 and the hugely successful Swan 43. And so the brand was born as these new yachts enjoyed instant popularity.
Decades later, nothing has changed. The initial vision of Nautor’s Swan to deliver “the very best” stands firm today with a line of luxurious and high-quality yachts for sale.
As agent for Nautor’s Swan in the UAE, Eden Yachting is pleased to bring this iconic brand to the Middle East. With a number of new models, enthusiasts are spoiled for choice. Here is some of what’s on offer:
1. Maxi Yachts
The Swan 115 FD
Taking luxury to a new level, the Swan 115FD (flush deck) is in a league of her own combining extreme comfort, contemporary interior and high performance. This elegant model includes a newly designed hull featuring a wide stern and plumb bow. Twin rudders increase her reactivity and an extended bowsprit improves downwind performance.
The Swan 115S
This is the cruising friendly version of the magnificent 115 and features a semi-raised saloon. The yacht has the owner’s cabin aft, plus three guest cabins, a Captain’s cabin and two crew cabins forward. All guest cabins are ensuite.
2. Medium range Yachts
In the medium range of yachts for sale come three new and innovative designs, maintaining the brand’s progressive and visionary thinking.
Swan 78 (under 24m) – a descendant of the Swan 80 and 82 the new and exciting Swan 78 incorporates all of Nautor´s know-how and experience in racing and cruising yachts. She is powerful, fast, safe and easy to control. This yacht comes with options for the keel which will depend on preference between deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow possibilities. She is neat and efficient and ideal for owners who want to sail with minimal crew.
The Swan 54 for Bluewater Cruising is the smallest cruising yacht to come from Nautor’s Swan in more than a decade. Suited for ocean sailing, she is fitted with a variety of features that will attract those keen on open water cruising. They include a fin keel, V-shaped hull and rake stem as well as a nifty sun-bathing platform that folds out from the transom. Expect tanks of 495 litres for fuel and 684 litres of water.
Clubswan 50 for racing has an exciting and innovative design. Her modern hull, along with twin rudders and steel blade keel allow for top control at high speed. Nautor’s goal was to make her easy to handle for two, but also efficient with a larger crew. She’s been described as refreshing and contemporary and is aimed at being versatile for racing or pleasure.
3. New Yachts
There are two brand new yachts for sale that Nautor’s are proud to have just launched.
The Swan 95S is longer, lighter and faster than her predecessor the Swan 90. Described as having long-range cruising capability, the new owner will also enjoy the luxury on-board comfort that has become synonymous with all of Nautor’s Swan yachts.
Complementing the Swan 78 is the Swan 65, a smaller, more compact, yet a powerful, intelligently designed yacht, with great stability and form in the water. Easy to control, modern, timeless, social, safe, but also speedy, the Swan 65 will be a fun vessel for anyone to own and operate.
