After the success achieved by the smallest in the range, ClubSwan 36, with more than 20 units already sold, the ClubSwan 50 with 27 units sold, and the brand new ClubSwan 80, with the first hull under construction at Persico Marine, the new Super maxi ClubSwan 125 is taking shape.

The yacht will be ready to hit the water for her official launch in June. “ClubSwan 125 makes us very proud at Nautor’s Swan. This boat can be seen as the real representation of innovation through heritage” says Enrico Chieffi, Vice-President. “Seeing our boatbuilders in Pietarsaari, working together with the most talented team in the sailing industry coming from everywhere in the world, it’s something extraordinary, pushing everyone to another level.

Harken’s carbon-top 1235 primary winches have been selected for the ClubSwan 125. These winches are developments of Harken’s 1135 grand prix winches that employ integral winch base and ring gear assemblies machined from a single block of stainless steel to extend load capacity from 9 to 11 tonnes. The two utility pit winches are Harken 990s, which have been proven over thousands of ocean miles and are currently serving in the Volvo Ocean 65 fleet.

The boat’s custom athwartship jib system utilizes Harken titanium TTR2 sheaves for maximum efficiency. The custom mainsheet system is a development of Harken MEGA CRX traveler cars utilizing Harken titanium TTR2 sheaves. All padeyes are in-deck soft-attach titanium loop padeyes. All in-deck sheaves will be titanium TTR2 as well. Harken TRR2 loop blocks and the new generation of Harken new high-load snatch blocks are specified for sheet leads above deck. Nautor’s Swan is breaking new ground with the ClubSwan 125 supermaxi yacht. North Sails’ combination of analytical tools and industry-leading 3Di sails make them the sailmaker of choice for this exciting new project.

The naval architect Juan Kouyoumdjian, who has designed three Volvo Ocean Race champions, has worked together with the shipyard to bring the project into reality.
