At the end of a week of one-design racing for the ClubSwan classes, Nautor’s Swan has unveiled its highly-anticipated Swan Shadow motor yacht to a select group of Swan owners gathered for the Swan Tuscany Challenge. The 13.2m boat was placed in the middle of the swimming pool of the Tarantella restaurant.
The Swan Shadow was designed by a Finnish naval architect and designer Jarkko Jämsén. She is characterized by the same design language as Swan’s famous sailing boats but features a stepped hull and capacity for up to 3 x 350hp outboards.
The innovative power yacht can be configured to suit the lifestyle of her owner, whether as a Limousine tender, luxury dayboat or chaseboat for a larger yacht. Measuring 13.2m from bow to stern and 4.3m at the beam, the Shadow’s teak decks include broadside decks to reach the bow. This space can feature upholstered lounge seating, sunbeds, or dining. The yacht’s T-top can be extended or lowered telescopically. A smart platform at the stern can be used to extend the deck, provide passerelle access to the quay, or lowered for swimming and diving.
The Nordic style dominates inside a large double cabin with a bathroom and an optional crew cabin. A specially designed online configuration tool allows to visualize in 3D all the options for this unique boat.
23 crews competed over four days of racing in the Swan Tuscany Challenge. The fleet included 13 ClubSwan 50 yachts and an impressive 10 of the new ClubSwan 36. The yachts were sailed by a mixture of passionate owners, talented amateurs and top professional sailors. Leonardo Ferragamo’s experienced Cuordileone took first place in the CS50 class. Marcus Brennecke’s Hatari came a very close second, with Stefan Heidenreich’s ONEGroup scooping third. In the CS36 class, it was even closer, with the last leg of the last race deciding the podium places. After an intense duel, Andrea Lacorte’s Vitamina edged Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio’s G-Spot into second place. Third went to Lorenzo Mondo’s Farstar.
