A Japan-based owner has bought hull number two of the upcoming Swan 58, with the first hull expected to launch in Finland by the end of June. The model’s world premiere is scheduled for the 52nd Boot Dusseldorf in January 2021.
Nautor’s Swan, which announced a 50 per cent growth in turnover for 2019, revealed details of the yacht in January. Six units had been sold by late February.
The Swan 58 is the first of that name ever produced by the historic Finnish yard, founded in 1966. In contrast, the 48 launched last year was the third model of the same name and the second designed by the legendary German Frers, who designed the 58 and all other models in the current Swan Yachts and Maxi Swan ranges.
Frers, whose former Swan designs include the similarly-sized 56 and 57 (second version), created the 58 as a fast bluewater cruiser that can be comfortably sailed by a couple, with a performance package as an option.
Below deck the interior has a forward owner stateroom with en-suite bathroom and two aft cabins with en-suites. Options include a fourth cabin midships for guests or crew and a crew cabin in the forepeak.
A new cockpit design includes twin tables that can connect to form a 10-seat dining table or separately be converted into sunbeds. The Swan 58 joins the 48, 54, 65 and 78 in the Swan Yachts range, while the builder’s other lines comprise Maxi Swan Yachts (98, 120) and ClubSwan Yachts (36, 50, 125).
Swan staged the world premiere of the ClubSwan 36 at Dusseldorf in January, while last year’s premieres included the Swan 65 at Dusseldorf and the Swan 48 at Cannes.
