Sailing yacht I Amsterdam launched by Nautor's Swan

4 June 2012By Raphael Montigneaux

News arrives from the Finnish yard Nautor's Swan, with the launch at the end of May of the first Swan 80S named I Amsterdam.

Previously known for her FD (flush deck) version, the 80 series is now available in the S version. Also designed by German Frers, the 80S features the addition of a sleek roof on the deck providing more natural light in the living area. Built in composite to Germanischer Lloyd classification, the Swan 80S has a length of 25.08 metres.

The interior is light and classic with the use of teak for the joinery. The layout is entirely customizable, with the possibility of a master cabin aft or forward, three or four guest cabins, etc. In the standard version, the Swan 80S accommodates six guests in a full-beam master aft, a double and a twin cabin, plus a crew cabin forward.

Like every Swan, the Swan 80S is a performance cruiser, perfectly conceived for both regattas or long comfortable cruises. Her mast exceeds 30 metres and she is powered by a single 140kW Steyr engine.

I Amsterdam will be delivered this summer.
