About Luxury Sailing Yacht ALPINA:
ALPINA is a luxury swan 82 FD sailing yacht offered for yacht charters in the Mediterranean during summer months and the East Caribbean in the winter yacht charter season. This stylish charter yacht is for genuine connoisseurs of yachting, those who appreciate the lightness of GRP hull and carbon fibre mast, combined with fabulous styling and craftsmanship only found on a Swan. Yacht charter boat like no other, ALPINA superyacht is a highly recommended experience of a lifetime. The Swan yacht charter boats usually combine superior cruising capabilities and an outstanding interior with the distinctive quality of a Nautor’s Swan and this is best expressed on the ALPINA super yacht.  By being built as light and fast, elegant and comfortable, ALPINA manages to evolve the difference between cruiser / racer concept by combining great sailing speed, seaworthiness, technology and innovation to ensure exceptional performance and above the average aesthetics. Hull number seven ALPINA was conceived to embrace all of these aspects and has become one of the most recognizable Swans ever built.
The navigation and communications station comes complete with worldwide transmission facilities and state-of-the-art navigation systems. Being a Swan, ALPINA is a wide boat and therefore teak-panelled main saloon is not only beautifully furnished but also very generous space for relaxation and fine dining. As the whole boat, the area is well equipped with a comprehensive entertainment system saloon. The best areas on board of this Swan 77 sailing yacht are the great cockpit and deck spaces where you can sunbath or if preferred hide in a lovely shade thanks to a wide awning that can be easily set up by the crew.  The fact the headroom is exceptionally high, with an additional 12cm/4’’ added, will put a big smile on the face of tall yacht charter guests which gives a great feel of freedom and space in the salon and cabins alike. The large cockpit table seats six luxury yacht charter guests and is a perfect setting for dining al-fresco during the day when you can enjoy passing panoramic views, or in the evening for a meal under the star-studded sky. Add to this a lovely, automated swimming platform, a fabulous 4.5m tender and plenty of water toys and you are set for a family sailing adventure of a lifetime.

As a racer, she has proven herself as an unstoppable force claiming overall victory in the inaugural season of the Swan Maxi Class with an outstanding win at the 2008 Swan Cup in Porto Cervo. Her racing qualities are now well known around racing circuit as ALPINA has an astonishing winning history.

About Nautor Swan:
The company itself was founded in 1960’s with a first new major investor joining in 1969, after the fire destroyed most of the shipyard and hulls created to date. The Finish owner, Pekka Koskenkyla sold part of the company to new investor Wilhelm Schauman which enabled the company's survival and the next stage in the development which ensured the Swan became one of the best yachts in the world.  A group of investors came on board in late 1990's and control the major stake in the shipyard ever since.  The original US designers Sparkman & Stephens were initially replaced by Ron Holland of New Zealand in mid 1970's with the services of the Argentinean German Frers being secured in the 1980's. To date, more than 2000 Swan hulls have been built and are currently cruising the world’s oceans, all being recognised as one of the best sailing yachts in the world. In terms of ALPINA, she is a pleasure to handle under sail or manoeuvre in all sea and wind conditions. Nautor Swan brought in the creation of this ALPINA all of its superior yacht-building expertise, knowledge and experience , ensuring she provides the expected refined yacht charter cruising experience and exceptional performance when needed.
