The Swan 90 will grace the upcoming Monaco Yacht Show with its presence. Made for both competitive racing and extended cruising, the Swan 90 is the latest in a long line of racing yachts designed by Nautor’s Swan’s designer, German Frers. With hydraulic winches, hydraulic head furling sail and handling controlled via push buttons, the yacht can easily be managed by two or three people in cruising mode. For competitive racing, it can be crewed by a team of twenty.
The Swan 90 is available in two versions: Flush Deck (FD) and Semi-raised saloon (S). Swan 90 FD consists of a forward cockpit, providing a social space area and a main entrance to the saloon. A bridge deck links the forward cockpit to the steering cockpit providing access to the crew area and navigation station. The Swan 90 S differs with one cockpit which extends from the saloon entrance back to the helm, with no bridge deck offering a more spacious deck area.
