Clubswan 50 - 3

Counterclockwise from top left: the Swan 39 Race version from 1978 designed by Ron Holland, the Swan 45 from 2002 and the ClubSwan 42 from 2006 both disgned by Germán Frers Nautor’s Swan has always offered high performance racing yachts to complement its classic range of cruising Swans, yachts such as the 39 and the 441 in Racing version.

DESIGN Juan Kouyoumdjian Performance comes from two main areas: the first one is optimising the relationship between key parameters such as length, displacement, sail area and righting moment; the second is a specific refinement of these parameters within themselves. Designing the ClubSwan 50, the hull shape and appendages were refined using our CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) setup based on Star CCM+. At the beginning we use 0 DOF (degrees of freedom) calculations since we didn’t know the weight nor ideal trim of the boat and we analyzed different candidate topologies across a wide...

The new ClubSwan 50 is at the cutting edge of contemporary yacht design. The brief was clear and simple: an extremely fast boat that would also be easy to take to the limit, convertible into a sports cruiser with limited crew, with captivating looks and the natural elegance of a Swan. It had to be both competitive in class racing and conceived as a One Design. In one word, this yacht had to be cool. The hull is modern and performing with full sections forward and a beamy transom, reverse bow, reverse sheer, pronounced chines, concave aft sections and reduced freeboards. Appendages are in...

SAIL PLAN The sail plan is latest generation: the mast has been positioned slightly aft of centre with a longer J ideal for powerful asymmetricals that can be either full or fractionally rigged. The square top mainsail has a full shape thanks to running backstays: a perfect combination for the racing circuit. But the sail plan has also been designed with easy sailing in mind. A few changes transform the ClubSwan 50 into a docile cruiser, perfect for a couple. In moderate winds the running backstays can be positioned at the mast, whilst in stronger breezes the double reefed mainsail passes...

Efficiency with a large crew and ease of use for a couple: the deck layout has been planned to be ideal in both cases, another revolution offered by the ClubSwan 50. The transverse jib tracks on the coachroof allow pure performance upwind angles and the six powerful racing winches make sail handling during racing fluid and efficient. In an instant the same layout can be adapted for solitary handling: the four winches around the helm can be used to control every function on board and, with the furling headsail configuration, it is easy to achieve top performance with a reduced crew, gybing...

UNDER SAIL Stepping onboard, the first impression upon sailing is that this is something extremely special. Leaving the dock under engine, in economic cruise mode she makes easily 9 knots, thanks to her light displacement. In light winds, the square top mainsail coupled with the generous foretriangle are able to produce plenty of power. The hull shape is designed to reach optimum performance at 22 degrees of heel angle sailing upwind and the Clubswan 50 quickly settles into the groove, boat speed building impressively. In light wind conditions, the stern has only minimal sections touching...

The quality that has made Swans so famous during the years can be seen in the obsessive attention to detail that can be found throughout the yacht.

That is why on our yachts we use only the best materials and the technologies that have proved their worth and durability in prolonged and severe conditions.
