Two of four Swan 78s have just been launched in Pietarsaari
The Swan 78-001 Haromi and Swan 78-002 Kinina, the two of four Swan 78s already sold, designed by German Frers, have just been launched in Pietarsaari.
Haromi will attend the Rolex Swan Cup 2018 in Porto Cervo (9-16 September) and the Genova Boat Show, Kinina, will be on display at the Cannes Yacht Show (11-16 September).
The latest version of the Swan 115, hull n. 004 will be exhibited in a worldwide preview at the Monaco Yacht Show. In the US, Nautor’s Swan will take part at the Annapolis Boat Show.
All of Nautor´s know-how and experience in racing and cruising yachts have been incorporated into this new blue-water Swan 78. Her length has been deliberately contained in order to meet the EC 24.00 meters length overall limitation, and her hull form is beamy and very powerful. Modern hull lines, with a flared stern above the waterline, twin rudders and a telescopic keel make Haromi a performance yacht capable of fast long-distance cruising, or an ideal home-from-home for relaxing onboard in privacy with friends and family.
Haromi is fitted out with a bespoke performance package to upgrade her racing ability, reflecting her owner’s competitive success. This includes a longer bowsprit, ECsix carbon rigging, halyard locks, a square-top mainsail with running backstays, a mainsheet traveller and additional powered winches on the coachroof.
Otherwise, keel options include deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow possibilities yet always maintaining stability. The twin rudder configuration and standard sail plan remain constants. Swan 78-002 Kinina has a standard keel with a 4m draft.
Hull and bulkheads are in prepreg glass/carbon, deck and structures in full carbon epoxy sandwich with Corecell foam core, vacuum and oven cured.
