Nautor's Swan sign order for second Swan 115
By Ellie Brade
2014 is off to an excellent start for Finnish luxury yacht builder, Nautor’s Swan with the sale of Swan 115 FD-002. The new flagship of the SwanLine, the Swan 115 is a high-performance yacht developed for both bluewater and long distance cruising.
“We are thrilled to announce the sale of Swan 115FD - 002. With close to half a century of heritage behind us, the Swan 115 is a thoroughbred that stands true to the original values that inspired our very first yacht, the Swan 36 - passion, tradition and innovation,” said Enrico Chieffi, CEO of Oy Nautor AB.
Two Swan 115s are currently in build at Oy Nautor AB: one Swan 115 S (semi-raised saloon) with lines and features designed predominently for cruising and a Swan 115 FD (flushdeck) with a slightly sportier appearance and configuration.
The Swan 115 has definitive hull lines, with a wide stern, twin rudders and a high grade steel keel blade with a T-bulb. Nautor also offers the option of a lifting keel, ideal for cruising the corners of the globe. Designed by naval architect German Frers, the Swan 115 is built of pure carbon (pre-preg), from a female mould, completely in-house at Nautor’s.
The interior configurations for the Swan 115 are also limitless with the owner’s cabin aft or forward, three or four guest cabins, as well as the option for a separate dining area. The Swan 115 has designated crew quarters for up to six and features systems and capacities for long-range sailing.
The Swan 115, along with the full SwanLine, will be presented this week Boot Dusseldorf, where Nautor’s Swan – Germany & Austria will be exhibiting in Hall 7A through to 26 January.
It has been a busy winter for Nautor’s Swan with the lamination of Swan 115S – 001 underway and the first Swan 105 in its final stages ready to leave Pietarsaari this spring. These three builds represent the yards first foray into the superyacht sector. The SwanLine includes the Swan 53, Swan 60, Swan 66, Swan 80, Swan 90, Swan 105 and Swan 115.
