Swan has very proudly announced the arrival of the 128, its second largest yacht ever coming 17 years after the 131. Designed ever by German Frers, this Maxi is very
much a sporty cruiser as capable in major international regattas as on long ocean voyages. A beautifully sculpted yet streamlined deckhouse – a semi-raised saloon configuration – only enhances that sporty feel, delivering all the functionality and protection of its siblings.
A joint effort between the Frers studio, Swan’s in-house interiors team, and Misa Poggi has produced a superbly flexible interior layout too with the owner’s quarters forward and a generous crew area aft. The materials palette spans a wide array of woods, starting with a natural oak base, leathers, and textiles.
Both layout and style can be individually tailored. The first 128 will splash in 2025.
