Design 2201 - Swan 47

The Swan 47 was the 11th S&S design prepared for Nautor of Finland. The boats were introduced in 1974. 70 boats were produced in a production run that lasted until 1979. Construction quality was extremely high with plans and materials as well as construction certified by Lloyd's. The design was optimized to rate well under the I.O.R. Rule but she is also a fine cruising boat. They are still desirable boats today.

A centerboard model was also developed.

Here are the plans.

Principal Dimensions
LOA 47'-9"
LWL 36'-2"
Beam 13'-10"
Draft 7'-10"
Displacement 32,400 lbs
Ballast 15,500 lbs
Sail Area 1,060 sq ft

  1. The plan shows a Mark II interior, as was developed for the centerboarded NYYC 48 version of the Swan 47. Initially there was a much nicer Mark I version. Do you have these plans available, too? Are there any hull shape drawings available? Great boat! Cheers, Tom
