The elegant Swan 115S superyacht

Nautor’s Swan has been firmly established as one of the world’s most exclusive builders of production yachts for almost 50 years. During that time the Finnish company’s designs have become progressively larger and the latest model, a 115ft high performance superyacht with exquisite accommodation, is no exception.
The company’s famed attention to detail and blend of tradition with the latest design thinking and materials can be seen just as clearly in this model as in Nautor’s first yacht. The 115S is described as the ultimate Swan, combining iconic style, quality and performance. The hull and deck mouldings are infused in carbon fibre using leading edge build techniques for stiffness, strength and light-weight.


A carbon mast, carbon standing rigging and top-specification deck hardware are all fitted as standard. In addition to a high-stability hull form, with the maximum beam carried well aft, stability and sail carrying ability is enhanced by the keel bulb which is at a massive 5.75 metre depth while sailing. With the hydraulic keel raised this figure is reduced to a modest 3.5 metres allowing access to the majority of the world’s most spectacular cruising grounds.

 

Below decks the high-volume hull offers an enormous amount of accommodation in a style that exceeds the standards of many of the most glamorous loft apartments, including joinery that’s hand-built in teak by Nautor’s time-served craftsmen. Along with the company’s designers, they are also able to accommodate owners’ specific wishes in terms of both appearance and layouts. The standard layout includes a spacious full-beam aft master cabin, three further en-suite guest cabins and fully separate crew accommodation for up to six. There’s also a spacious semi-raised saloon that’s flooded with light, a separate dining room and a professional galley. There are currently four Swan 115s in build, with the first one scheduled to leave the factory in July 2015.
