Design 2012 - Cresta IV

Cresta IV was really the prototype for the Swan 55, built as a one-off by Nautor. She is constructed of fiberglass and launched in 1969. She looks like a big, powerful ocean racing machine. These first two images are pretty dramatic.

Here are the plans.

Here's an image of Rod at the helm during sea trials.
