Boat Archive > Swan > SWAN 60


The new Swan 60 was conceived to meet a growing demand for a model engineered for performance, comfort
and style. Using the latest technology, design and construction methods, the Swan 60 combines a voluminous
interior, large cockpit, high righting moment for comfortable cruising with racing performance potential.
This performance orientated yacht is designed to enhance the cruising experience and benefits from a
practical cockpit layout and helm position, providing space for relaxation and unhindered movement around
the boat at all times.
The boats high stability, direct steering system, foils, carbon fibre spar package, and forgiving performance
contribute to a light, responsive yacht which can be sailed by a limited crew.
The deck is spacious and offers the choice of a clean open transom version or functional closed transom version
which features a sunbathing area and dinghy garage.
The result of extensive research and use of advanced materials is a low drag hull and appendage package, with
a long dynamic waterline at displacement and semi planing speeds. The Swan 60 has a T shaped blade keel and
lead bulb and comes with two draft options at 3.6 m and 2.9 m, both using the same structure and offering
enhanced stability.
