Swan 120

LOA: 36.55m­­­

Builder: Nautor’s Swan

Naval architecture: Germán Frers

Exterior styling: Germán Frers

Interior design: Misa Poggi

The 120 is one of the largest sailing yacht models to be produced by Nautor’s Swan, and her attendance at the Monaco Yacht Show will mark her worldwide premiere. With extra space comes extra amenities, and this is realised in the presence of a sizable transom beach club on which features a large teak-decked swimming platform and a garage for holding a 4.5 metre tender and other toys. Once the tender is in the water, this area can be used for sunbathing and even al fresco dining at the water’s edge. Despite her size, her sailing performance remains exemplary thanks to the modern canoe body of her hull, impressive sail plan and various keel options.

Swan 98

LOA: 31.05m­­­

Builder: Nautor’s Swan

Naval architecture: Germán Frers

Exterior styling: Germán Frers

Interior design: Misa Poggi

No two sailing yachts from the carbon fibre Swan 98 range will be the same, as the models in this series are customisable to the owner’s wishes. At a basic level, the 98 features a flared stern aft with a sheer line sweeping to a clean and open foredeck with a low-profile coach roof. But the similarities end there. Owners can choose from interior colour schemes in the accommodations for eight guests, or can opt for a telescopic keel capable of reducing the draught from 4.9 to 3.2 metres in order to enter shallower harbours and reefs.
