SWAN 42 SPECIFICATIONS
Maintaining the same hull and similar high tech construction materials and methods of the high performance Swan 60 FD, a new deck, cockpit and interior have been created for this model. The main idea behind this new version is to offer the experienced yachts- man with years of racing on his shoulders and to the regular cruising family man, a real thoroughbred with whom recreate past experiences or establish new ones. She is a real wolf in sheep’s clothing.
The Original high power rig and deep keel design combination as well as a more moder- ate sail plan and shallower tee keel are offered with this model. The smaller sail plan will require less ballast which will yield as soon as the breeze picks up similar performances to those of its more powerful counterpart. Thanks to the larger deckhouse and large win- dows, the interior offers an ample and airy semi-raised saloon which includes the galley opposite to a large chart table and storage place or a potential fourth cabin.
Two en-suite guest cabins aft are standard. These cabins will also be the ideal sleep- ing place for the crew during offshore passages. There are a couple of options in the Owner’s cabin layout including a side double berth possibility. On deck there is a large cockpit, better protected, best suited to the northern waters than the racing version, with a dinghy garage beneath.
All in all I think the new Swan 60 S, created by experts and wrapped in a good looking elegant envelope, offers a very attractive and special combination of high performance, top Nautor quality comfort unique in the market.
Compared to her FD sister the S version (S stands for Semiraised Saloon) was specifically conceived for all the requirements of long navigations without losing the exceptional abili- ties of this fine hull: a true Gran Turismo. The well tested three zone cockpit has been rede- signed to suit the yacht’s bluewater vocation. The coachroof is clearly visible but flaunts a profile that reveals its pure Swan DNA and offers generous protection to the large cockpit. The sleek and elegant lines of the ample coamings extend all the way aft to protect the cockpit in its entirety: the guest area forward, with its two meter long seats served by a removable central dining table, is further protected by the large integrated sprayhood; the central area is dedicated to the yacht’s manoeuvres that are all collected around the helm stations with a large single winch for the mainsail; finally, the coamings even protect the raised aft section of the cockpit dedicated to lounging and sunbathing.
This raised section of the deck leaves plenty of room for the large lazarette than can double up as a tender garage accessible either from the cockpit or directly from the opening transom.
The rounded profile of the coachroof offers good standing room below while maintaining its sleek looks and leaves room for wide sidedecks that allow safe and comfortable passage forward even when the yacht is heeled.
The flush hatches follow the profile of the coachroof and blend seamlessly with the design. Further forward the recessed furler leaves the bow clean and unhindered with its tapered and aggressive lines: a feature of this cruising thoroughbred.
The interior layout takes advantage of the generous volumes of the hull through various alternative solutions designed to satisfy different needs and any specific request. The layout is organised around the raised saloon, under which large tanks ensure ample range for cruising.
In the standard version, the raised area is dedicated to entertainment, whilst further for- ward, in a lower, protected area are the C shaped galley and the large navigation station with space for a full array of electronics. Both are designed to provide maximum comfort at sea. The en suite Owners cabin is forward and, in the standard version, displays a large island double bed.
Alternatively, the double bed can be placed to the side – a more comfortable option when the yacht is heeled. In this case the en suite head is moved forward. Aft of the main saloon are two generous guest cabins, both en suite with direct access to the heads. As an option, the starboard cabin can become a crew cabin with space for a generator and other equipment.
All the furnishings are in traditional Nautor style, a clever mix of design and know-how, with details provided by the yard’s culture of bluewater yachts, such as the rounded an- gles and the large number of handholds.
