Swan 78

Tech Specs

The hull is a foam cored glass fibre reinforced epoxy construction with carbon fibre unidirectional reinforcements built in a female mould.

The lay-up is vacuum assisted epoxy resin infusion, giving a stiff laminate with excellent strength and fatigue properties. The hull laminate is cured in an oven at a temperature specified by the material manufacturer.

All the stiffeners are moulded by vacuum assisted epoxy resin infusion in glass fabrics with carbon fibre reinforcements and foam cores. Special care is taken to assure rigid foundation and proper adhesion to hull.

The structural bulkheads are moulded by vacuum assisted epoxy resin infusion in glass fabrics with carbon fibre reinforcements and foam cores. The bulkheads are bonded using high strength structural adhesives.

The composite chain plates are built using pre-preg unidirectional carbon fibre straps laid over stainless steel bushings. The chain plates are attached to the hull using high strength structural adhesives.

The rudders have composite skins on a foam core, attached to the rudder stock. The rudders are designed with a sacrificial tip. A weed deflector is located in front of the rudder and is surface mounted

The main deck is of a carbon fibre pre-preg construction with a foam core. Coach roof and coamings are of a carbon fibre pre-preg construction with a foam core. High density core is located in way of loaded areas. The deck is bonded to the hull using high strength structural adhesives.

The teak deck consists of 55 x 9 mm teak battens with black 5 mm caulking. The side decks, fore deck, cockpit sole and seats are teak covered. The teak deck is bonded under vacuum using epoxy.

Jib sheets are lead on deck to the primary winches. The 2:1 mainsheet system is lead to a drum winch, mounted on an island.
