With 6-metre beam, canting lifting keel and Nauta interior the CLUBSWAN 80 is going to be the latest superyacht available for new boat owners in 2021. To be built in Italy by the Persico Marine and with several leading designers involved in engineering, project management or naval design, this new Swan promises new levels of performance, comfort and luxury …
Following successful introduction of new range, the ClubSwan, with models such as ClubSwan 50 and ClubSwan 125 already sailing, the Finnish shipyard Nautor Swan is introducing a new ClubSwan 80 now. Introduced by the shipyard in order to allow owner participation at international level’’, as confirmed by the vice-president Enrico Chieffi, this boat will join the world of Maxi’ probably as a leading sample. The new model was developed in-house but in collaboration with the naval architect Juan Kouyoumdjian. Persico Marine of Italy have also contributed and they are in fact using their shipyard facilities to manufacture the first model of ClubSwan 80. As with many most modern boats recently launched, Nauta Yachts have a part to play too. Their design team will make their stamp on the interior, while all engineering designs are work of Giovanni Belgrano studio. The whole project will be managed by Vittoria Volonte.
One of the features of the boat is canting lifting keel, which reduces the draught from 6.3 – 4.5m. One of the main aims of ClubSwan range is to introduce latest technology and trends into affordable luxury, given that high tech products used in America’s Cup are simply not within reach to many a keen sailor. As a result, the shipyard aims to participate at Maxi Rolex Cup 2022 with three of these yachts. The main brief for the existance of NEW ClubSwan 80 was to "create a maxi yacht for real-time racing''. This process will enable creation of new, identical yachts, which will at the same time be using latest tech solutions, be modern, fast and fun to sail and compete with, allowing for particiapation in racing events where the skill of the owner/captain at the helm will make allt he difference to the end result and winning team. At the same time, the owners are likely to benefit from measurable, limited and controlled running costs while carbon hulls engineered by Pure will provide optimum control while racing and competitive sailing.
The press release on this subject is shown below.
By NAUTOR SWAN
“We’d like to introduce a new concept into the world of Maxis and invigorate Owner participation on an international level. That’s the reason why we have created a new ClubSwan 80 and put together the most brilliant minds in the yachting industry, working with the aim to evolve the accepted principles in the sailing world”.
This is how Enrico Chieffi, Nautor Group Vice President, wants to introduce the new project of ClubSwan 80, with the first unit currently under construction, to the world, highlighting once again how Nautor’s ClubSwan Yachts division is proving to offer a range of yachts based upon values of style, speed, innovation, technology and competitive sailing potential.
After the great success achieved by the technologically advanced ClubSwan 36, the ClubSwan 50 which marked the start of a new era in the One Design panorama and the new Super Maxi ClubSwan 125 ready to hit the water next spring and conceived to beat all world records, Nautor’s Swan is expanding the ClubSwan family with another exceptional project, which will prove to be once again both technologically advanced and radical against the maxi sailing yachts’ history and to complete the ClubSwan Yachts range. The brief at the heart of the new project was to create a maxi yacht for real time racing: identical yachts, modern, fast and fun to compete with the same equivalent features, relying on the owner’s abilities at the helm. The controlled running costs, together with the exhilarating performances and light displacement make this yacht a dream for every sailor.
For the construction of the ClubSwan 80, Nautor’s Swan has teamed up with Persico Marine, based in Nembro, an international shipyard renowned worldwide for its expertise in building high performance yachts. Persico is putting to good advantage its know-how acquired from the series production of VO65s and larger advanced high-performance one-design boats currently sailing. Moreover, on the subject of state-of-the-art one-design yachts, Persico Marine is the Official Supplier of the famous foil arms for the next America’s Cup, to be held in Auckland in 2021. These parts, which are used to keep the AC75s up on their foils, have been supplied to all teams and are absolutely identical in all respects. Nautor’s Swan, Juan Kouyoumdjian and Persico Marine, together with selected experts in different fields (Vittorio Volonté for the project management, Giovanni Belgrano for the engineering, Scott Ferguson for the Rig Design and Nauta Design for the Interiors,) have been working very hard to design and develop this new performance boat:
“When I started working on the projects of ClubSwan Yachts with Nautor I felt ecstatic. Designing pure racers which are highly technological and advanced is something unique. When we started talking about a model which could raise the bar in the sailing world in order to turn the maxi sailing yachts around, we all knew that an eighty-footer was the right way to go. Working with Vittorio, Giovanni, Scott and Persico’s team is something that it’s difficult to explain. It’s like pushing ourselves over the limits learning from different experiences, approaches and ideas. That’s innovation!”
"We are very honoured to cooperate with Nautor’s Swan and Juan K in the construction of the ClubSwan 80. With this significant collaboration, we will continue to expand and to enhance our production technology, allowing for the greatest versatility in the design and engineering of high performance yachts,” Marcello Persico, CEO of Persico Marine, said.
The hull yacht is being built in carbon engineered by Pure.
The hull shape has been intensively tested by Juan Yacht Design’s own C.F.D. department to reward each owner with the best performances combined with optimum control while racing inshore around the cans as well as offshore for the major maxi events.
