Child of Lir is a true performance cruiser delivered by Nautor’s Swan in 2014. Commissioned by an experienced owner, the Swan 105 RS is kitted out with high-performance Harken hydraulic winches, Southern Spars rigging and 3Di sails courtesy of North Sails. Nautor's Swan was chosen to built the yacht and the design is a unique collaboration between Frers Naval Architecture and beiderbeck designs.
A relaxed interior features satin-finished mahogany and accommodates eight guests in four en suite cabins, comprised of a double cabin, two twins and a full-beam master suite. The master suite sits aft with direct access to the swim platform through a sliding glass door, doubling as a private sea terrace at anchor. Further accommodation sleeps a crew of four.
On deck, a fixed carbon bimini provides protection from the elements in the cockpit with a retractable sunshade. Under sail, the yacht can be managed by a small crew and manoeuvres are made a breeze thanks to a self-tacking jib and push-button sail and rigging controls.
Under power, a 330hp Cummins engine gives her a range of up to 2,800 nautical miles. Special attention was paid to the noise levels throughout the yacht, with a “night mode” generator that promises restful sleep.
