Swan 98

Heritage

The history of Swan Maxis begins early on, a few years after the establishment of Nautor. An expert client asked for a 17 m Sparkman & Stephens. It was the year 1970 and the magnificent Swan 55 took shape. At that time, it was one of the largest yachts in the world to be produced in series and in fibreglass. Sixteen were built, in both yawl and sloop versions.

Design

The architect

German Frers

The elegance and style of Frers’ design is currently being made real in Nautor’s Swan’s state-of-the-art superyacht facility in Pietarsaari, Finland, and the craftsmanship for which Nautor’s Swan is renowned the world over.

Deck

The deck itself combines the considerable superyacht experience of both Nautor’s Swan and Germán Frers, providing dual-purpose spaces for both efficient sailing and resting in style. The spacious open foredeck provides the perfect sun deck while at anchor and space for sail handling while cruising. Aft of the coachroof there is a ‘grande’ leisure cockpit completely clear of lines that allows owner and guests to relax underway and enjoy the sun, sheltered by a sprayhood that disappears into a coachroof recess when not in use. At anchor this cockpit becomes a social lounge space with versatile deck sofas, the perfect place to relax as the sun sets, and converts again to become an elegant dining area, shaded by an optional bimini. Aft of this is a clear deck space that serves as a sun-lounging area, sheltered by coamings, at anchor, and a line handling space for manouevres when sailing. Further aft is a second companionway, which provides easy deck access from below for the owner or crew, depending on which interior layout is chosen. Then there are the twin helm positions, from which the skipper can manage all the sail handling as the Swan 98 offers genuine pushbutton sailing. The anchor is launched and retrieved by means of a hydraulic retracting and folding arm, a design that has proved its reliability and ease of use over many years. This world-girdling performance cruiser has abundant deck stowage both in terms of a spacious forward sail locker and a full-beam aft lazarette. For those wishing to compete, there is a comprehensive racing package that includes a squaretop mainsail with running backstays. The package also includes a double-length bowsprit for fast reaching with powerful masthead gennakers.

The interior designer

Misa Poggi

The design philosophy is based on the fact that past and future are tradition and innovation that merge together in the idea for the project, without any useless extremism or virtuosity. The fundamental principles are exactitude and method, as well as the unchanging habit of involving craftsmanship, and the use of real, natural and traditional materials.
