Nautor Swan launches new ClubSwan 43

Nautor Swan has launched its latest crossover yacht, the ClubSwan 43.

Designed by Juan Kouyoumdjian, the ClubSwan 43 has been conceived as a racing yacht able to compete in races across the world and also with the option of a ‘racing-cruising’ experience.

“The project with Nautor Swan begun with the aim of creating a yacht that performs not only in One Design but also within the ORC classes,” explained Juan.

“The task was not easy, but we have come up with a design that satisfies both of these racing worlds, thanks in part to the continuous discussions we had with sailors and end users, which have improved the entire project.”

Features of the ClubSwan 43 include a hull, hull structure and deck constructed using vinylester infusion with carbon reinforcements.

The hull structure is made in a single part through infusion to maintain better control of weight and ensure structural strength.

“ClubSwan 43 offers performance and style in both the exclusive Swan One Design circuit and the established worldwide rating racing events.”

Additionally, the yacht is complemented by a high modulus carbon fibre mast and boom. The bowsprit is made in prepreg carbon both for the racing version and the cruising one.

The design features technical elements to ensure optimal functionality and precision including a deep keel recess for enhanced performance, especially in bowline sailing.

The rudder is engineered for high performance, inspired by some of the solutions seen in America’s Cup boats, featuring a slim profile for hydrodynamic efficiency.

The fin and keel are precision-milled with CNC machines for accuracy.

The interior has been developed by Micheletti+Partners to provide adaptable accommodation with the adaptability of removing 80% of the interior for a race and re-install it afterwards to return to cruising comfort.

“ClubSwan 43 offers performance and style in both the exclusive Swan One Design circuit and the established worldwide rating racing events,” said Federico Michetti, head of sports activities and CS43 product manager. “This model is not limited to just a specific category but is something which goes beyond.”

The model will debut at the Rolex Swan Cup 2024 in September.
