The new Swan 80 has been designed thanks to the renowned naval architect Germán Frers creating the overall concept and naval architecture, Lucio Micheletti the exterior style and Misa Poggi the interior style.
A fresh new look on deck features wood covered cockpit coamings — which have been extended further aft for crew comfort — that add a new perspective to the yacht. With its modern, uncluttered look the design speaks of neatness and efficiency.
Below deck the Swan 80 has the space and capacity to offer a wide variety of cabin configurations and open areas to meet all requirements.
The Swan 80’s near flush wooden deck serves to highlight the discreet and streamlined coachroof running aft from the mast.
As the whole aft cockpit section of the yacht is flat, it allows any configuration of seating, ondeck storage or other furnishings that might be desired. It is also possible, of course, to remove all deck furniture when in racing mode.
Similarly the open aft deck can be set up for swimming and sunbathing when in cruising configuration, with easy access to the beach area and swimming platform, which in turn are adjacent to the full beam lazarette which can easily accommodate a rigid inflatable boat.
The Swan 80 features twin rudders for directional stability, a tapered hull entrance and powerful aft section, with design allowing optimal balance between performance and stability at different angles of heel.
The hull’s construction of foam cored glass fibre reinforced epoxy with carbon fibre unidirectional reinforcements ensures solidity and durability.
Versatility and flexibility are the order of the day when heading below decks on the Swan 80.
A variety of optional configurations are available for the location of cabins, sitting and dining areas. One possibility sees the spacious owners cabin located forward, with another four guest and VIP cabins all with en suite facilities.
The crew quarters are organised in an area aft, with independent access to the cockpit, engine room and other technical areas to avoid disturbing guests. Another possibility allows for the temporary conversion of a guest cabin for crew use, so increasing crew from 2 to 5.
The already spacious saloon area can be further increased by utilising the space of one guest cabin for an additional TV or dining area — another nod to the maxi philosophy.
