One Design Racing
The new ClubSwan 36 is an innovative high performance yacht that has been developed using all the experience of Nautor’s ClubSwan Division and the detailed hydrodynamic and CFD studies of Juan Kouyoumdjian in a timeless authentic design. Working with the most qualified experts available and following a deep dedication to finding the edge between an incredibly fast hull, thanks to the latest available technology, and impeccable handling in every condition. The ClubSwan 36 is akin to a modern supercar, allowing you to reach exceptional limits in total control – the extraordinary sensation of surfing at over 20 knots in total safety needs to be experienced to be believed. The ClubSwan 36 allows an amateur sailor to reach extreme performances while racing strict One Design in tight competition.
In the spring of 2005, the New York Yacht Club approached several designers requesting a proposal for a new One Design yacht for the Club members and other sailors to enjoy traditional Corinthian racing. The boat was to be fast, fun to sail and rate well under the IRC Rule. Nautor’s Swan teamed up with the Frers Naval Architecture to present their proposal. After a thorough investigation of all of the candidates, the NYYC One-Design Committee selected the Nautor/Frers team to design and build the latest NYYC class racer. This gave birth to the NYYC ClubSwan 42, a light and extremely fast yacht and the first Swan to feature a retractable bow spirit.
Nautor’s Swan expertly combined close to half a century of experience, precision craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology to create the masterpiece that is the Swan 45. Over the years, the Swan 45 Class has gone from strength to strength on the international racing circuit through the engagement of an extensive, network of passionate sailors to become one of the most competitive and socially active classes in the world of sailing. Boasting a 50-strong worldwide fleet, the Swan 45 Class consistently takes center stage as a one design class, while also claiming wins at major international regattas in both IRC & ORC.
The new ClubSwan 50 is at the cutting edge of contemporary yacht design. The brief was clear and simple: an extremely fast boat that would also be easy to take to the limit, convertible into a sports cruiser with limited crew, with captivating looks and the natural elegance of a Swan. It had to be both competitive in class racing and conceived as a One Design. In one word, this yacht had to be cool. Naval architecture has been developed by Juan Kouyoumdjian, the Argentinean designer who also penned the winning Volvo 70’s Groupama 4, Ericsson 4, ABN Amro and the maxi Rambler 88.
