The Swan Shadow, designed by Jarkko Jämsén, is the first power yacht Nautor’s Swan has built in its 55-year history. The Swan Shadow has a plumb bow, strakes and a twin-stepped, V-shaped hull. Power is triple 225 to 350 hp outboards. A stern platform adjusts vertically to serve as a passerelle or swim platform, and onboard setups can focus on fishing, guests or open stowage.

Owners can spec a T-top or long-top roof; the latter can be ordered with telescoping pillars and movable glass to create a convertible, limousine-style abovedeck space. Top speed is reportedly 55 knots.

Whom It’s For: The Swan Shadow is designed as a tender for sailing yachts or for those seeking a powerboat infused with Nautor’s Swan DNA.

Picture This: You and your crew just won a windward-leeward race at the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup off Sardinia, Italy. Your Swan Shadow arrives with chef-prepared snacks and different headsails before the next race commences.
