swan54-siteA new 54-footer that has special significance for the Finnish shipyard: German Frers designs the smallest hull in the Swan Line range, which goes up to 115 feet. A return to the 50-footer that rekindles the dreams of many shipowners in love with the lines of these ladies of the sea. The philosophy is that of a bluewater designed to sail in any condition, without sacrificing the elegance that is surely the Scandinavian shipyard’s most distinctive feature. New 54-footer excites shipyard president Leonardo Ferragamo: “When our company’s founder Pekka Koskenkyla built the first Swan 36, he also defined the shipyard’s principles: elegance, performance, reliability, attention to detail and timeless design. We are proud to build boats that are loved by their owners, because they are the focus of our company.”

The new Swan 54 features a displacement hull and lead keel available with a variable draft (2.44 to 1.4 meters) and a sail plan designed for maximum performance but, at the same time, easily manageable and with a generous bow triangle.

The deck layout is designed to ensure easy maneuverability even with a small crew, not to mention areas dedicated to relaxation on board. A large beach opens aft with direct access to the water for pleasant bathing in the roadstead.

The genoa rails are rigged on the deckhouse and carry the sheets directly to the winches, leaving the fairleads free. The double wheelhouse is complete with four electric winches that facilitate maneuvering in small crews. Ample space is reserved for stowage: a calavele in the bow and two generous lockers one on the starboard and one aft.

interior-1-medThe boat’s interior, made of oak, is designed to provide maximum comfort for long sailing in a bright and refined environment. The standard layout includes three double cabins (master stateroom in the bow, a center cabin, and one in the stern) as well as an engine/storage room with space for the generator, washing machine that can, if required, be converted into a crew cabin. The galley is really a generous size for a 54-footer and is designed to be able to cook easily and comfortably even while sailing and is positioned, as is the tradition of the shipyard, on the right side of the ladder, in the most stable areas of the boat.
