Nautor’s Swan has always offered high performance racing yachts to complement its classic range of cruising Swans. With the ClubSwan 50, Nautor pushed the limits as far as it could, producing a contemporary, fast, competitive One Design that can sail offshore and be converted to a sports cruiser sailed with limited crew.
“Nautor’s Swan has often been ahead of the curve – the Finnish/Italian company has been building lightweight carbon flyers for over a decade now – and for its 50th anniversary it wanted to produce a spectacular yacht. I think I can say it has achieved that rather handsomely.” Toby Hodges, Yachting World
The ClubSwan 50 Class promises great One Design racing. With 21 boats already sold, it is a fast–growing Class populated by passionate owners and committed crews. An ambitious programme will offer racing in some of the most vaunted sailing venues in the world, accompanied by all the expected benefits membership of the Swan family brings.
With a packed agenda for the 2018 season, the fleet will have many chances to see who’s the best! With 3 racing circuits World wide (med, USA East Coast and Asia) The Nations Trophy Leagues will give continuity to The Nations Trophy and Swan One Design racing.
The new ClubSwan 50 is at the cutting edge of contemporary yacht design. The brief was clear and simple: an extremely fast boat that would also be easy to take to the limit. It had to be both competitive in class racing and conceived as a One Design.
