Broker's Comments

FLOW is hull No. 005 of eight Swan 601s built by Nautor - a true racer/cruiser with an impeccable pedigree. Designed by German Frers (of course), with the first seven hulls launched in rapid succession. She is built from carbon fibre for performance, yet features the beautiful teak interior one would associate with a Swan, with accommodations for six or eight, if saloon berths were used. Her deck construction is also of carbon fibre Sprint sandwich with a foam core/vacuum bagged and over cured with Esthec synthetic teak decks, Harken winch package, and racing keel with narrow steel fin and lead bulb, dual carbon wheels and pedestals as well.     


New sails in 2018 and 2019 including light/med/heavy jibs, code zero and 3 spinnakers to start, along with new racing main. Her Hall carbon rig, black, is clearcoated for protection and rod rigging was replaced with Carbolink. Running rigging is Dyneema.


She has a 72HP Volvo with sail drive 150S.


Teak veneer interior is totally Swan, with two cabins aft and owner’s cabin forward. Lightweight sandwich construction floorboards in addition to the racing floorboards, removable ceiling panels, and watertight bulkhead aft of forepeak with removable double in owner’s cabin. All heavy weight items were removed and discarded when this owner purchased FLOW, in order to maximize her racing potential, which obviously worked given that FLOW did extremely well in her regatta appearances.


The Swan 601 is the perfect boat for racing in the Swan Events, as there is a good rivalry between the other 601s, so fun sailing. She also can participate in all the offshore events and easily situate herself on either side of the Atlantic or Caribbean.

Owner's Comments

We were attracted to the Nautor Swan 601 because of its impressive racing history over the last 15 years. The Swan 601s have always performed and rated exceptionally well in all conditions, and the design remains competitive against much more modern boats. Our primary intention was to race competitively in major European regattas while also being able to enjoy fine cruising experiences when not in race mode. FLOW has an excellent pedigree, originally built for Nautor’s Swan owner Leonardo Ferragamo under the name “CUORDISOLE”.


FLOW lived up to its reputation, winning its division in the 2019 Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup (Maxi World Championships) against a very competitive international fleet. In two other highly competitive regattas, FLOW placed second in both the 2018 Swan Cup and the 2019 Les Voiles de St. Tropez regattas.


As soon as FLOW was purchased, we embarked on a modernization and performance improvement program, which included reducing the displacement, reducing heeling/pitching moments, optimizing sail performance and reducing hull drag.


We also installed a complete update of FLOW’s electronic navigation and communication systems, allowing for superior analysis and monitoring of her racing performance.


All of the modifications were made without effecting her original cruising interior. In cruising mode, the owner’s cabin is forward; in racing mode, much of this forward cabin is removed to allow easy spinnaker drops through the forward hatch.


The rig modifications were coordinated and completed by Rigging Projects UK. The rod rigging was replaced by Carbo-Link lenticular carbon rigging and the cruising boom was replaced with a Hall Spars (Holland) high modulus carbon race boom. The traditional spinnaker pole and its systems were replaced in favor of a lightweight racing bowsprit. Many of the deck and sail handling systems have also been optimized to allow for more efficient crewing.


A new North Sails racing wardrobe was added, designed and optimized by J.B. Braun. The new racing headsails and mainsail are 3Di carbon racing laminates. All of the new sails have only been used for four regattas. 


FLOW is one of the rare Swan 601s that have twin cockpits with a raised bridge deck between them. This facilitates a good-sized head with full headroom between the two aft cabins while not detracting from her racing performance.


FLOW is a very reliable racer/cruiser that performs very well and handles beautifully under sail or power.
