Builder’s/Manufacturer’s Comments:

For Nautor’s Swan, 48 is a magic number. One of the most iconic Swans ever was born in 1971 under this number: the mythical Swan 48. Designed by the best yacht designer of that time, indeed one of the best of all times, Sparkman & Stephens of New York, this iconic yacht won some of the most prestigious offshore races, like the Bermuda Race and Transatlantic Race and achieving selection for the Admiral’s Cup – the “Formula One” race series of that time.


However, racing was not the main purpose of the boat: like any Swan, she was born to be a perfect family cruiser, capable of sailing around the world in total safety and comfort. Quoting from the original brochure: “With many international races behind her – the Swan 48 is keeping up an irresistible challenge as top class ocean racer. With the speed of a bird of prey she combines the luxury and grace which make her the swift, smooth-going Swan of tomorrow. The Swan 48 is equipped to the highest professional standards and the woodwork has the class given it by the Nautor specialists, men who have learnt their crafts around the Gulf of Bothnia, where woodwork and shipbuilding skills are traditional. The unique design and professional skills behind the Swan 48 make her the complete ocean cruising racer.” To prove this, 46 units were sold during five years of production.


Following the same principles, in 1995 Germán Frers designed a new Swan 48 with the same level of grace and performance as the original one: another shining success, with 57 yachts built, now becoming beloved and highly regarded yachts on the brokerage market.


Today, almost forty years after the original one, it’s time for another mythical Swan 48.

Designer’s Comments:

German Frers, Architect:

Like every design coming off our drawing board, the new Swan 48 has been designed with heart and passion, but rather than acting only on the flash of a moment of inspiration, this new Nautor model is the result of a rational brief, based on a market analysis and the experience of the builder, agents and designers, coordinated by the Nautor Project Line Leader. One can safely say the Swan 48 is a new model created by the work of a team of experts, and she offers the best equipment and material specifications and solutions available in the market. The equipment and tanks are low in the bottom of the hull and close to the longitudinal centre of buoyancy. The angle of positive stability is in the order of 120 degrees.


The displacement reflects the quality of the construction and the equipment dedicated to provide best comfort onboard. A yacht that will be safe, a pleasure to sail, will have an easy motion at sea due to the form stability and moderate ballast of the three keel options available, standard, shallow and racing. Following the latest larger models, the new design shows no distortion in the stern sections, the deck beam has been carried all the way back to the transom in combination with a twin rudder arrangement. Positive control shallow rudder draft and extra sailing length are some of the advantages of this design. A well illuminated, massive interior volume where every one of the three cabins and two toilets that include separate showers has been carefully developed in detail by the interior designer.


On deck there are separate areas for relaxing and sail handling. All halyards and sails are controlled from the cockpit and the tails stowed in dedicated bins. Protection from the elements is given by the spray hood mounted in combination with the bimini. The lazarette is large enough to accommodate and stow a fully inflated 2.80 metre tender. For sailors interested in racing at the Corinthian level there is a performance package offer available from Nautor, including a racing keel, a square top mainsail, carbon fibre mast and rigging, long bowsprit, upgraded deck gear together with recommendations to remove some of the cruising oriented equipment like the gen set.

Interior Designer’s Comments:

Misa Poggi:

Working on the interior of a Swan yacht means creating a special atmosphere for onboard comfort and contentment and a reciprocal enrichment beyond the practicalities of place, function and space, always involving Finnish passion for excellence.


The process for producing a sense of intimacy combined with the necessary seamanlike features is a multi-faceted one that enriches itself thanks to the collaboration of the great expertise of the Nautor’s Swan team, our technicians and, of course, evaluating the dreams of Swan enthusiasts.


The atmosphere onboard and its energy are determined by the relationship between spacial elements and materials.


Nautor’s Swan materials are chosen carefully and tested by the whole team to guarantee their best performance in all the challenging areas of the sailing context.

Deck Equipment

Deck Layout:

The deck plan has been designed for maximum efficiency, safety and comfort. The deck design, particularly the coach roof, is the most relevant part of a yacht in terms of aesthetics and character. Nautor has always paid close attention to this aspect and the ‘wedge’ coach roof design has been a brand hallmark since its introduction in 1971 with the original S&S-designed Swan 48. The design of the new Swan 48 represents the latest generation of wedge coach roof to evolve from that original design. It is designed with a combination of soft curves and faceted surfaces, presenting a new style but still in the family feeling of her bigger sisters, the Swan 65 and 78. It also introduces the ‘Eagle’s Eye’ feature, a long brow that gives the whole coach roof the appearance of a raptor’s intense gaze.



The cockpit, well protected by deep coamings along its length, has Swan’s typically functional layout with a forward area dedicated to guests, that is fully protected by spray hood and bimini, a central section where all sailing gear is concentrated with winches within easy reach of the helmsman, and an aft area dedicated to sunbathing and direct access to the sea via the opening platform. Safety is always a priority on a Swan. To this end, a special solution for the main sheet has been developed to prevent the sheet crossing the whole cockpit and reduce the danger from an accidental jibe. As an option, the platform can also provide access to the tender garage. Other areas, like the forward sunbathing area with cushions well integrated into a recessed part of the coach roof, are dedicated to comfort at sea.
