"Designed by the Frers design team in collaboration with Nautor's Swan, to specifications developed by the NYYC, this new model will be a high performance yacht with racing at its core. Not only will the yacht have the benefits of a strong class association, it will be competitive at international sailing regattas within open divisions including IRC, and will also provide owners with a comfortable cruising experience for which Swans are renowned. Nautor's Swan's commitment to utilise only the highest quality materials in the construction of its yachts will be matched with the technological advancement that prospective owners will expect from a one-design class model. The yacht's composite construction will ensure light displacement and high performance, while light and airy detailing within the interior will create the stylish appearance that one would expect from the latest generation Swan."
