The new Swan 108 has been recently hitting the waters of the Gulf of Ostrobothnia in Finland. The results of her first seatrials where extremely positive, and she is ready to sail the Mediterranean waters in the upcoming weeks.
The 33 meters Maxi Swan, which will be débuting at Monaco Yacht Show, from the 27th to 30th September, is the result of the amazing research of talents, skillfully orchestrated by Giovanni Pomati, our CEO, able to put on the table their combined know-how, to create a beautiful and unique yacht. The team at Nautor worked closely with Maestro Germàn Frers for naval architecture, Misa Poggi for interiors, and Micheletti + Partners for the exteriors.
Positioned between the Swan 98 and Swan 120, the Swan 108 is based on the evolution of the previous Maxi Swan, particularly in regard to the exterior lines, but with the addition of innovative solutions never applied before by the Finnish yard.
Designed with moderate freeboards like every Swan yacht, this new model offers seaworthiness, great comfort at sea also in very rough conditions, and handles gently in waves. She is a proper bluewater yacht with great performance and able to compete at top level when required.
The innovative deck layout comes in two solutions for the cockpit. The owner can choose a step in the aft deck area or a completely flush deck. Both solutions mean that the area is suitable for sunbathing or just as a lounge area to sit and relax.
The innovative coachroof is beautiful yet functional with an extra-large companionway leading to the saloon to give an idea of continuity with the cockpit. Innovation isn’t only in style but also functionality, for example helm stations have been moved forward and in a higher position to enhance visibility and control of the yacht bringing the aft part of the cockpit completely available for sunbathing, relaxation and the beach club area.
The sail plan takes advantage of the brand’s experience in building performance cruiser yachts for efficiency and easily managed sailing. For the mainsail any possibility, from the cruising oriented in-boom furling to racing square top mainsail, is available, while the long base of the fore triangle allows having up to four stays to divide the forward sail area.
The interiors, designed by Nautor’s interior team and Misa Poggi, offer great livability and comfort for both the owner and guests. The yacht has an owner’s suite forward plus three guest cabins complete with private heads.
