Nautor's Swan Crackerjack Overview
The owner of this yacht, an experienced British yachtsman with more than 30 years of sailing experience, is a longtime Nautor customer: suffice it to say that this is his sixth Swan. Consequently the boat has become the epitome of the "ideal Swan" in the customer's mind and differs from his sisterships in many details. Although she is a cruising boat, her owner has participated in dozens of signature Swan regattas with great success, winning several of them, and therefore her sailing rig has been redesigned for racing use. The steel standing rigging was replaced by PBO, sails were made on 3DL technology, air battens - very expensive and extremely rare for yachts, coming from America's Cup. The owner and the yard are especially proud of the noise insulation measures, making the yacht one of the quietest 80-footers in the world. A noteworthy feature of the boat is her "monochrome" interior, made of specially treated oak in a grayish-mustard color - all other details of the interior are subject to the same tone.
