Sail-World.com : Swan announces new 'pure' cruising range of sailing boats
Swan announces new 'pure' cruising range of sailing boats


'One of the new fleet of Nautor’s Swan cruising yachts, the 80RS'    .

Last year the famed Finnish boat builder Nautor's Swan built its 2000th yacht. This week, staying loyal to their naval architect German Frers, they have announced a new range of yachts by Frers, meant just for the cruising sailor.

So far, the world leader in boat-builders has been renowned for their sleek quality performance yachts. The new range of cruising yachts will range from 60 to 115 feet in length.

The new cruising range includes the Swan 60RS, Swan 80RS and Swan 105RS which will hit the water in 2014, plus the flagship Swan 115RS - the first of which will sail in 2015.

Developed with needs of both blue water and long distance cruisers in mind, the models in the cruising range ensure short handed sailing with ease and are suited for long distances, with increased protection from the elements, additional stowage and tankage, with the option for shallow draft and lifting keels.

Nautor’s cruising range is taking advantage of the same hull design and construction techniques and materials of the successful performance range, and maintains the core DNA of a Swan with the utmost attention to quality, detail and style throughout. Nautor’s talented interior architects then work with owners to design and deliver interior layouts and attributes best suited to the client’s lifestyle and ambitions.

Leveraging the expertise gained from close to half a century of building sailing yachts of the highest quality, as with all Swans, the cruising range will be built entirely by Nautor’s experienced craftsmen at the company’s headquarters in Finland.

CEO Oy Nautor AB Enrico Chieffi proudly presented the new cruising range to a group of international media earlier this week at the company’s headquarters in Pietarsaari, Finland.

'The launch of a pure cruising range for Nautor’s Swan is a major step for the company. We recognise that many owners use their boats mainly for cruising so we are very pleased to be able to offer the best design, build techniques, materials and craftsmanship and deliver the ultimate cruising Swan customized for discerning clients.'
