10 March 2021

Described as a “no-compromise cruiser with a racer soul,” the newly introduced Swan 88 is the entry-level model in Nautor’s Swan’s popular Maxi sailing range.

First revealed in 2020, the Swan 88 is penned by veteran Swan designer Germàn Frers, who describes the model as “an evolution of previous models”. As a result, the 26.5 metre model was designed with ease in mind and offers efficient, uncomplicated and easily managed sailing.

Key features include a deck split into four distinctive areas, with the first three located aft and fourth sitting forward. Aft, the guest cockpit features a new coachroof design with an integrated sprayhood and bimini, and modular benches that can be arranged in flexible configurations, from lounging to formal dining

The manoeuvring area is centrally positioned, while a new beach club area sits at the stern with access to the water and a large tender garage. The fourth area, described as a “sunset lounge”, sits forward of the mast.
