Nautor’s Swan unveils the ClubSwan 50: designed by Juan Kouyoumdjian, the ClubSwan 50 is a high-tech, aesthetically captivating one-design yacht.
“It is an honor for me to design a boat for Swan. The tradition, craftsmanship and sailing ability of Swan boats is second to none and they have been a reference for me since I was young and dreaming of designing sail boats. This boat represents a balanced compilation of everything we have learned from the past. From performance, seaworthiness and the capacity to sail easily with a reduced number of crew. It is a tremendous challenge that Swan has presented us which I believe we have together managed to accomplish,” said Juan Kouyoumidjian.
About the deck
Efficiency with a large crew and ease of use for a couple: the deck layout has been planned to be ideal in both cases, another revolution offered by the ClubSwan 50. The transverse jib tracks on the coachroof allow pure performance upwind angles and the six powerful racing winches make sail handling during racing fluid and efficient. In an instant the same layout can be adapted for solitary handling: the four winches around the helm can be used to control every function on board and, with the furling headsail configuration, it is easy to achieve top performance with a reduced crew, gybing without adjusting running backstays.
The optional cushions with rigid back supports convert the cockpit into a comfortable lounging area. The generous storage space with large lazarette aft and sail locker forward, together with options such as bow roller and windlass, transform the ClubSwan 50 into a contemporary sport cruising yacht.
