The latest arrival of the Swan Line, the 58, is a true Bluewater yacht, with all the typical features for this purpose, but without any compromise in terms of performance and pleasure in steering the boat. Welcome to the new Swan Bluewater Concept.
Swan 58 interprets bluewater cruising at its best. This is a concept that immediately brings the dream of traveling the world, visiting remote paradises and meeting welcoming native people. When it’s time to realize this dream and choose the proper boat, however, only then do you start focusing on priorities: safety first, comfort second, autonomy third. Of course, all these at a cost – potential performance and the pleasure of sailing.
Well, that is until now… The new Swan 58 has been designed right around this concept: a proper Bluewater yacht, with all the typical features for this purpose, but without any compromise in terms of performance and pleasure while steering your boat. Welcome to the new Swan Bluewater Concept with the Swan 58.
Swan 58: architect German Frers
“The next Swan model was designed contemporarily with the smaller sister, the Swan 48 presented to the public last year. It follows the same well proven and successful canoe body design concept; powerful, well balanced and sea kindly shape that would be safe and a pleasure to sail. On the Swan 58, a true Blue Water yacht intended to sail comfortably anywhere in the world, the bow sections have been softened with the idea of allowing a smoother upwind ride than the sea normally encountered in force 4/5 wind conditions.
The final length was settled after a thorough study of the interior volume, this new model, as required to fit three full-size en suite cabins plus a possible four, a comfortable saloon, ample galley, together with the space necessary to fit all the complements and machinery required by today high standards of living, and the necessity to accommodate an eventual temporary crew member. Thanks to the relatively long coach roof, large window areas, numerous hatches, the hull ports, and full headroom throughout there is a feeling inside the 58 of being in a much larger luminous, well-ventilated yacht. On the other hand, the freeboard is lower than the norm. She is elegant and sleek.
The anchor on Nautor’s Swan 58 is stowed on the integral bowsprit and the windlass on a special watertight compartment below deck. On the deck of the Swan 58 is the typical set of winches near the cockpit and dual steering positions. The cockpit sports twin tables surrounded by more than 2 meters long L shaped settees. At the forward end of the uncluttered coach roof, there is a dedicated sun-bed. Regarding appendages, with the standard twin rudders, the new model offers four keel options, standard, shallow, telescopic, and racing. The Swan 58’s racing keel comes with a performance package to match. This may include a square top mainsail, a racing bowsprit, upgrades in rigging and deck equipment. I expect this new model would become a classic that will remain young and active for many years to come”.
Starting with an aft cockpit and following the evolution of the Swan 48 deck layout, the Swan 58’s deck features some new features never seen on a Nautor’s Swan of this size. The concept is simple: give maximum comfort and livability at rest. Added to this is also maximum efficiency for sailing with a small crew, without losing the ability to race with a full crew.
As always, the nerve center of the Swan 58 is the cockpit, which has been developed following Swan’s signature distribution of spaces: the aft area dedicated to sunbathing and access to the sea through a wide platform that gives access to the large tender garage, the central part where all navigational maneuvers and helm stations are concentrated, and the bow area, dedicated to guests, protected by the integrated splash guard and easy-to-store bimini. This is a zone where the main novelties are concentrated.
The width of the Swan 58’s hull in the cockpit allows for an L-shaped bench design served by two separate cockpit tables. These feature additional folding doors to double their size to become a very large single table. This area can accommodate up to 10 guests in dining mode. The tables can also fold down to convert the seats into a sunbathing area. With all these different positions, the cockpit can be adjusted to any possible situation, making this area a fantastic platform to enjoy life onboard in any condition.
The rest of the Swan 58’s deck is a combination of areas of comfort, such as the large sundecks at the front of the deckhouse, and practicality, such as the position of the jib trolleys, which give the best trim angle while leaving clear passage in the side passages, or the spacious forepeak, plenty of room to store sails and bulky gear. All this designed with elegant and discrete lines, in the typical Swan style.
Designed for proper bluewater cruising, the 58 interiors have been conceived as a combination between luxury and comfortable living spaces, storage and volumes for systems and safety features. The standard layout offers three guest cabins and three bathrooms, with the option of adding a guest/equipment cabin amidships. It is also possible to have an additional crew cabin with a toilet and sink in the forepeak. The hall, more than 5 meters long, has plenty of natural light and ventilation. It has an overall height of more than 2 meters and a beautiful view through the hull’s large windows.
The dinette crosses the whole beam, offering a dining area which can seat up to 10 people and a table that can vary its size according to use, facilitating access to the whole seating area. On the starboard side, an array of possible combinations allows the owner to personalize this area to suit his needs. The Swan 58’s galley is designed to be practical both at anchor and under sail, with an all-around design. It offers support during skidding and numerous work surfaces accessible both inside and outside the kitchen. A special cabinet is dedicated to tableware, complete with a removable tray to facilitate the storage of delicate china on board.
The navigation station is offered in five different layouts, from the traditional facing forward chart table to the office-like desk complete with seat and drawers. The forward cabin provides owners with a proper suite where they can enjoy private time without compromise. The bed is oversized (205×165 m) and complete with 3 integrated removable leeboards that allow its use while sailing; it is fully accessible on three sides. Guests have available two en-suite cabins, offered with two possible layouts: two separate beds or one generous queen size. Throughout the boat, storage volumes are available in different shapes, from drawers to lockers to below-seat volumes, to allow the better organization of provisions and personal belongings and make your cruises problem-free.
