Swan, a name, a myth, an icon. For Swan’s 50th anniversary, Nautor decided to celebrate in style and over the last few months, has announced a series of new projects.

The 50th anniversary boat will be the Swan Club 50, a One Design dedicated to performance, a true regatta pureblood, which was put in the hands of Argentinian designer Juan Kouyoumdjian, who truly knows competition vessels, as his design won the Volvo Ocean Race. The aggressive look of the Swan 50 does not lie, speed will be this vessel’s daily bread.

This is not the only news for 2016, increasing slightly in length there is the Swan 60S, by German Frers, recently presented at the Dusseldorf Boot. A model which is in line with Swan’s recent cruising vessels, dedicated to long-term navigation or offshore racing.

The most recent news, released over the last few days, is the Swan 78. Once again designed by Frers, it is a model that develops from its larger sister vessels, the Swan 80 and Swan 82. A tidy vessel, with slightly larger space than its older siblings, and with double tillers, which seem to be the current trend in modern yachts.
