The Swan Overshadow uses Nautor’s proven Shadow hull design while letting owners choose among multiple deck and belowdecks configurations. The Overshadow has inboard propulsion, and the twin-stepped, V-shaped hull is built to Category B offshore standards. With dual 440 hp Volvo Penta Aquamatic D6-DPI engines, the boat has a reported 52-knot maximum speed.

Whom It’s For: Performance-minded boaters who want to entertain, cruise and have sea legs to keep pace with the main ride.

Picture This: It’s a moody late September morning in Newport, Rhode Island. You and your partner decide to blast over to Block Island for lunch at The Landing at Champlin’s Marina, but you hedge your bets and take your Swan Overshadow. It’s raining for the final miles, but the Overshadow’s long top and high windscreen keep things comfortable.
