Nautor’s Swan has sold two hulls of its Swan 78, whose preliminary design was first presented in early 2016. Both owners will be first-time clients for the builder, with the yachts expected to be delivered in spring 2018.
“The second Swan 78 sold just from the drawings,” Enrico Chieffi, vice president of Nautor’s Swan, stated in a press release. “2016 has been a very busy year for us, having delivered the models ClubSwan 60, Swan 54 and Swan 115. The Swan 95 S is also nearing completion and is scheduled to be delivered next spring, together with the fourth Swan 115.”
The Swan 78 is a bluewater yacht with twin rudders and a racing-oriented keel design. Keel options include deep telescopic lifting, fixed deep and fixed shallow, all with the same twin rudders and standard sail plan. Five electric winches are intended to allow for shorthanded sailing.
Water-level feature: The Swan 78 will have an opening transom with a swim platform more than 13 feet wide.
Interior options: Owners can have their staterooms forward or aft, with two additional twin-berth staterooms. There also are quarters for two crew.
