Swan 120 gets her finishing touches

Written by Francesca Webster

This morning, Nautor’s Swan shared a preview of the first hull of their newest maxi, the Swan 120, on her way into assembly, following a fresh paint job. This latest model of the Swan maxi line was designed by German Frers, who commented; “The new Swan 120 superyacht encompasses Nautor's philosophy and DNA on its largest expression. Her sailing performance is exhilarating, thanks to the modern canoe body of the hull and the sail plan matched by an efficient twin rudder lateral plan which includes various keel options. A pioneering clean and efficient push button control deck arrangement offering ample access to the sea and sunbathing it is another of the key ingredients. All in all, the 120 is a very attractive proposition, created by a team of experts, and built according to Nautor's best practice.”Swan 120/01 yacht hull in outfitting phase The sailing yacht Swan 120 features a clean foredeck with a raised coach roof aft, just to the fore of her protected cockpit, which can be covered by an electrically controlled bimini and sprayhood. These sophisticated design features blend flush into the coach roof when not in use. When at anchor her cockpit is transformed into a lounge and dining space.

When not at sea, the transom folds down to reveal a teak swim platform, and a garage housing a 4.5-metre tender, and other toys of the owner’s choice. This area can also be transformed into a dining or lounge space, incorporating a beach club.Nautor's Swan 120 Maxi Swan Exterior RenderingPhoto: Nautor's SwanNautor's Swan 120 Maxi Swan Exterior RenderingPhoto: Nautor's SwanThe hull of the high-performance sailing yacht will be full carbon fibre construction, using epoxy SPRINT® pre-preg carbon fibre interior and exterior skins on a core of M-grade Corecell foam. This will ensure the vessel's ultimate structural integrity, at the lightest possible weight.
