Design 2150 - Swan 41

Yesterday we posted an article about design #2120, Gunfleet of Hamble. In the posting we referenced the Swan 41 which was directly developed from Gunfleet's lines. Here she is.

The Swan 41 was introduced in 1973. 61 hulls were delivered during a production run that lasted until 1977 and the introduction of the Swan 411, design #2150-C1, which was a further improvement on the design.

Two rig configurations were offered: a heavy weather "short" rig with single spreaders and a light weather "tall" rig with double spreaders, although both with the same amount of sail area.

Here is an early design review.

Here are the plans.

LOA 41'-0"
LWL 30'-3"
