Nautor’s Swan have just completed the hull of the first Swan 78

Nautor’s Swan has revealed the first in-build photos of its new Swan 78 sailing yacht series.

The new Swan 78 represents, for Nautor today, a medium size, between the entry level 15 m yachts and the large 115-130 ft range. On the 78 Frers signature lines have given their very best, with sleek curves that create a volume capable of protecting the cockpit and creating more space below. The design is a mix of curved lines and multifaceted surfaces, with 360 degree windows and a generous roof that doubles up as a sunbathing area.

To provide the most flexibility and satisfy any possible owners’ requirement, the interiors of the Swan 78 are offered in two different layouts: Owner Forward and Owner Aft. In the first configuration, the Owner has a large suite forward, cooler and quieter. It is 4.5m long, with an island bed that is completely accessible on three sides. A desk and dedicated bathroom, with large separate shower compartment, complete this luxurious apartment.


The Owners Aft version is dedicated to owners who wish to sail long distances and in any weather. The large suite, in this case, is placed to the stern, in the area where there is less movement and less noise under sail. The cabin provides an impressive 6m width, thanks to the generous volumes of the innovative hull.

The saloon remains the same in both versions, and it is also over 6 m wide. It is raised to provide better panoramic views. Below, ample bilge volumes allow for a full beam engine room, totally soundproofed and large enough to accommodate a variety of systems and equipment.
