Article published by Vela e Motore: The Swan 108 has been launched at the Nautor Swan base in Pietarsaari, Finland.
Swan 108 is the first model of the new Maxi Swan era and is the result of a collaboration between Germán Frers for naval architecture, Misa Poggi for interior design, and Lucio Micheletti for exterior styling.
The hull and deck are made of carbon fiber with Sprint technology and epoxy resin. Among the notable innovations is the new aft area with a dual effect.
What does this mean?
The stern opens up along with part of the deck to provide a large beach club. This solution allows for doubling the available space in this area and simplifying the management of tenders. The beach area does not compromise the interior volumes.
The new Maxi Swan will make its debut at the Monaco Yacht Show from September 27th to 30th.
Lo Swan 108 è stato varato nella base Nautor Swan a Pietarsaari, in Finlandia. È il primo modello della nuova era Maxi Swan e nasce dalla collaborazione di Germán Frers per l’architettura navale, Misa Poggi per l’interior design e Lucio Micheletti per lo stile esterno. Scafo e coperta sono in carbonio con tecnologia Sprint e resina epossidica. Tra le innovazioni da segnalare la nuova zona di poppa con doppio effetto: la poppa si apre insieme a parte del ponte per offrire un beach club di grandi dimensioni. Una soluzione che consente di raddoppiare lo spazio disponibile in questa zona e a rendere più semplice la gestione dei tender. L’area spiaggia non compromette i volumi interni. Il nuovo Maxi Swan debutterà al Monaco Yacht Show dal 27 al 30 settembre.
Nautor’s Swan launched the Swan 108, the first yacht in their new Maxi Swan generation. The yacht features a full carbon hull and deck using epoxy Sprint technology, along with a dual-acting transom door that creates an expanded beach club area. The coamings on deck widen, allowing for outboard steering positions while maintaining helm protection, and an extra-large companionway provides ample interior light. The Swan 108 stays true to Nautor’s Swan philosophy, blending heritage with contemporary style. Other yachts, including the Swan 88, Swan 108 hull number two, and Swan 128, are also under construction. The debut will take place at the Monaco Yacht Show.

Unveiled at last year’s Monaco Yacht Show, the Swan 128 is the second largest yacht ever for the Finnish yard and the largest in its current Maxi range. Construction is at an early stage, with the mould still being built around the finished plug.
